One tenth of a marathon at goal pace. It didn't feel easy, but it felt good. Besides the cold and high altitude of course.
I've got 17 weeks before the marathon. I need to be able to run a 20 miler at goal pace a couple weeks before the marathon.
So early April goal: 20 miler at goal pace
Early march goal: 15 miler at goal pace
Early february goal: 10 mile run at goal pace...
Seems ambitious to add 5 miles to my long runs per month but it'll be good to try. I need to get in shape. And if I can pull it off then I should have a really good summer of training. If I could be running about 40 miles per week in the summer inury free I'd be pretty excited.
