Running The Rock

Ran my 20-miler this morning. It was my final test before committing to White Rock. Looks like I made it with all body parts still intact:

1st 6 miles: 10:08/mile
2nd 6 miles: 10:43/mile
3rd 6 miles: 10:01/mile
Last 2 miles: 8:56/mile

Total time: 3:23, ahead of my 3:33 goal time and 10:39/mile LSD goal pace.

I just registered for the race. No looking back now. 3 weeks to taper before Judgement Day ...

You sure are a glutton for punishment. On the other hand those were some good splits for the 20. Nice a balanced with a kick in the end. I should be so lucky.
Good luck with the rest of training.

I signed up for White Rock on Saturday myself. Maybe I'll see you out there....

How good it must feel to get in that 20 miler and feel ready. Stay focused and relaxed, and you'll be there in no time.

Yeah! It's really not so bad to do two close together, it's pretty fun really! More bang for the training buck. You'll do GREAT!
