I started out at one end of the boardwalk and saw pretty much what I expected. Street people, tourists, running groups & Harry Perry
Despite stumbling upon the disturbing crime scene in progress, my run overall felt pretty great and I inadvertently hit exactly the pace my SmartCoach had asked, 11:19/mi. I have been slacking on my speedwork so I am not expecting or even secretly hoping for a PR for the LA County Half Marathon on December 12th, but I'm confident I'm ready for a half once I've done a 9 mile long run.
Next week, my SmartCoach training has me doing:
Monday: 5 mile easy run
Wednesday: 6 mile tempo run (this might be tough)
Thursday: 4 mile easy run (I'll be hitting a turkey trot for sure)
Saturday: 9 mile long run at 11:16 pace
Any turkey trots on your schedule this week? Don't you just love those?
