09/15/2015 Finally! A real, actual, solid, decent, awesome, "long run!"

Well, it's certainly been awhile.  I have been slacking off in the building up in distance of my weekly runs.  It's no secret that I haven't stretched it out since last spring.  I was blessed today with a beautiful, sunny, but not too hot day today so I dropped the excuses and took advantage.  I set my watch GPS and said I'm not stopping until I hit 10 miles.  

Ten miles later, I stopped my watch and was completely happy with my effort.  Actually, I was a little surprised at how strong my run went.  I love that my watch gives me a ton of data.  I ran the 10 miles and averaged an 8:15/mile pace.  I cannot argue with that especially because I got in some decent hills on the run.  

Also, the second half of my run was a lot stronger than the first half.  Basically, this means I negative split my run.  Finally, the last 4 miles of my run were all under 8:00/mile pace.  That I love.  

Tonight, I am going to plan out the remaining weeks of training before November 1st and I will post it as well.
