AM Long Run w/ 9mi. AT.  Ran around town - the first half of the new Mill Race marathon course.  6:41/mi. avg. was getting in to some faster than AT zones during the last couple of miles.  At 6:40 pace, that's not too encouraging.

20.2 miles total - 2:36

Double 10k workouts one day a week worked for getting decent results for BG 10k in July, so trying something similar translated to marathon training. 

11am - Lunch Run Part 1 of double - 6mi. AT - Ran out county roads behind Walmart again. The temp./humidity is actually manageable, today.  Avg. around 6:40 pace. 8.1 mi. total - 57:38

6pm - Part 2 of Double - 5x1mi. TH - Loops around Mill Race.  Busy place today - yoga class, lots of runners, and people out enjoying the much milder weather.  6:06, 6:01, 5:57, 5:59, 5:52.  8mi. total - 54:20

PM - easy 5 miles over to TP house to visit and back home for kid's lunch.

PM2 shortly after - 19.2 miles mostly on Mill Race course around town.  Made the correct turns this time and ran roughly the first half of the full course.  One pit stop at the hospital ER bathroom, topped off water - got a wierd look from a nurse :)  Drained the whole handheld of water with Clif elctrolyte mix and ate one roctane GU.  Ran the last 1.5mi. of the Mill Race Full course at TH pace after roughly 20 miles prior.  About 6:10 pace was tough.  My hope is to duplicate this at the end of the actual marathon.  24.2 miles total - 3:10.  Dehydrated with 1 mile left and really hit hard.  Should've gone one more GU and more water.
