Tuesday Training

Last week was a slow-ish week for training.  I didn't get to do 3 midweek runs like I wanted to, but that's life!

Usually I do two 4 mile runs and a 3 mile run during the week.  It gets tough though when I have work & have to drive up to class.
I've been trying to figure out what my "marathon pace" is.  Obviously it's tough to guess since I've never run one before.  However, my main goal for this race is to finish and be happy with my run.  That being said, I think I'm going to try and be conservative with my pace and stay around a 10:00 mile.  That should have me finishing under 5 hours which would be great!  I guess if I had a time goal, it would be to finish under 5.

On Saturday I ran my 7 miles at a 10:30/mile pace and felt just fine...although that was only 7 miles, not 26 ;)

This weekend is an easy 5 miler and then I'll start bumping up the miles soon!
Hokie Half is less than 50 days away!

Let me know if you have any marathon pacing tips!
