Double Digits baby!

  • I have finally built my running back up to double digits!  It has been so long since I have done a double digit run, I can’t even remember when it was.  I know it’s been at least 2 months, and probably 3 or 4.

    There is something about doing a training run that is 10+ miles long that makes me feel amazing.  I still remember when I could not run 1 mile on a treadmill (that was only 2 years ago).  I can’t believe that I am able to run 10 miles and then go to work the next day.

    The thing that stood out for me in this run is that I did a 20 mile bike ride first.  Granted, I didn’t push it hard on the bike, but I still rode 20 miles.  I had only about 10 minutes in between the bike and the run but my heart rate still only averaged 141 beats per minute AT AN AVERAGE PACE OF 8:38!!!

    An 8:38 pace in my Half Ironman race will give me a sub 2 hour 1/2 marathon.  I will be very happy with that.  We shall see.

    I also liked the elevation profile of this run.  Just a few gentle rollers, but I really like how this graph looks.  I think it’s also a testament to how accurate the elevation feature of my new Garmin 910 xt is.

    It’s good to be back!
