Race: Presque Isle Marathon in Erie PA (26.2 Miles) 03:09:30, Place overall: 20, Place in age division: 4
Easy MilesMarathon Pace MilesThreshold MilesVO2 Max MilesTotal Distance
1.0026.200.000.0027.20

1 mi. warmup - it was a little chilly before the race/warmup. 

Perfect conditions for a good run once it did start - Very flat 2 lap course around Presque Isle on the shore of Lake Erie, 50 degrees throughout, and well shaded even when the sun did come out.  Goal before the race was to run 7:10s for 20 mi. and then 7:40s for last 10k.  I'm glad I didn't stick to the plan from the beginning.  Went out at 6:50 for first mile and felt like I was holding back.  Up through mile 20, I hovered somewhere between 6:50 and 7:05, with random three miles between 7:10 and 7:15. 

Passed through the half (lap 1) at 1:31:30, 16 mi. in 1:52:00, 20 mi. in 2:20:20,

It got ugly after that - 7:24, 7:44, 7:50, 7:55, 8:05, 8:05, last 0.2 in 2:05

26.2 mi. - 3:09:30 - Boston Qualifier!!

Mill Race Race - Columbus, IN

PR for 4 mi., 5 mi., 10k and 15k today in this race.

Clearly, these distances have been neglected with the marathon training and not actually running races at those distances for a while, so the PRs were not surprising.  Nonetheless, a good day on legs that still feel like they are recovering from the Erie Marathon on Sunday.  This race is a race held in my home town, and is always a fun one.  Tiff ran the 5k, also.  It started pouring rain in the last half mile, which made it a fun finish, though my mile split did not reflect that.

6:18, 6:34, 6:30, 6:40, 6:40, 6:50, 6:50, 6:50, 7:06, 1:56

Think I was top ten overall-results pending...
