Fly-By: +Distance

So far, 2011 has been awesome! The past two weeks were 50 miles and 51 miles. Today I cranked out my longest run since PDX back in October.

Distance: 16.3 miles
Time: 2:12:58
Pace: 8:10

I was very happy with this run. I started out very strong. This was good and bad. Bad becuse it meant I sped up too much on one of the downhills, clocking a 7:22 around mile 5. So...I faded a little at the end. Still, a run I am very happy with.

Today has been a great day too! I started off with that run and then have been very productive with homework. I've worked on my algebra a little, did laundry and typed a bit more of my thesis! The only thing I have left to do is work on diff eq a little and find some job postings I might like to apply for. Its shaping up to be a last great week of base building!


  1. i'm having a good last week of base building too. fingers crossed it'll translate into a good training cycle :)

    no worries about fading at the end. i've been doing a bit of that myself lately. i think that once the excitement of training hits we'll be golden

  2. goodluck on the differential equations!
