Twelve Mile Long Run

Sunday, February 1, 2015

Well, it's as long as I'm going to get with only two weeks to go before the next marathon.  We ran on the square running/walking track at the YMCA.  Because of the hundreds of corners in a 12-mile run on that track, all the same direction, I tried to mix in some running on a treadmill, but quickly gave up on that because it's not very compatible with my run/walk pace.

I brought water and took that at irregular intervals - whenever I was thirsty.  Overall time for the 12-mile distance was 2:22:44, for a pace of 11:54, which is a 5:12 marathon pace.  I'd be quite happy with that, really, but today's run was less than half the distance of a marathon.
