First, I got into the 2015 TCS NYC Marathon! I am very happy to be headed to NYC next November and cannot wait to have some real direction to my sustained training over the next 8 months.
Second, I spent about an hour and a half on a nice long run today. The reason I called it a 2 part workout was because I negative split the run into two halves. The first half I ran 5 miles in 45 minutes. I then turned it up a bit and during the next 45 minutes, I ran 5.28 miles in the same amount of time. Consequently, I spent the first 45 minutes at a 9:00/mile pace and the second 45 minutes at a pace of 8:31/mile. The workout was strong, felt good, and taxing near the end.
I am not sure what I want to do for a workout tomorrow. Over the next week or so, I plan to layout a short term running outline as well as a long term outline. Details to come!
