Running – 08.14.10

Distance: 16.01 mi
Duration: 2:59:23
Pace: 11:12 min/mi

This is so much slower than I hoped I’d be doing these long runs but an improvement over last week. I took a different route today that took me on some uncharted territory. A text message from my dad at mile 3 put a smile on my face (and maybe even a tear in my eye).

So what made the difference today? I left an hour earlier (6:30) and beat the heat. I took my earbuds and listened to music the entire time, something I don’t usually do. Actually, it’s been years since I’ve run with music on a long run. I liked it. I’d need to assemble a good playlist next time (found myself flipping past sad slow songs) but maybe this is what I need to get past the next few long runs from hell.

I am hoping to run a faster pace during the actual race, but if I end up at an 11:00 min/mi pace, it would still be an improvement over my last couple of marathons.

Runner, Eater, Mother, Tweeter

Amy, July 2013

I'm a thirty-something suburbanite turned ruralite living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Wife, mom of two, eater of all things delicious, and a runner. This is where I blather on about running and health. Baby Number Three will be here in November (so yes, I'm a little crazy), and I'm running through my pregnancy for as long as my body's willing and able. There's also more of me at amyupnorth.com.
