After dinner tonite, our boys had their 1st swim lessons of the season. I knew the mileage was 5.21 miles to the class (thank you Runner's World online training log), so should I run to the class or afterwards?
Well, I decided to run to the class. I don't know what I was thinking, as I only left 1/2hour ahead of the wife & boys. For some reason I was thinking it was only 4 miles, but I knew it was 5+. Guess I was having a "senior moment". Well, I was a bit late. I realized my mistake about 3 miles into the run, as I realized how much further I had to go.
All in all, it was a bit of a struggle, as I should have run after the class. It was too soon after eating to run, especially in the humid weather.
The boys did great in their class, and I did the 5.21 miles in 44:50 (8:37/mile).
One thing I noticed about my runs, they are consistently between 8:30 - 8:45/ mile pace.
I'll throw this question out there to the seasoned marathon runners:
Is this a good thing? Should I start to add tempo runs? I'm still a few weeks away from starting my 18 week journey to Philly.
I have decided on a marathon training plan, and will post it in soon.
