113 days until
SUNDAY, MARCH 20, 2011
when I need my body to run 26.2 miles


Today was my long run day.
I ran the bike path from my home past Hermosa Pier and back

left the house at 9:31 it was cold no wind sunny
breakdown of miles no particular reason for these ?laps? I just random

Lap 1 2.21 miles 25:17 pace 11:26/mile (home to Redondo pier)
Lap 2 2.51 miles 27:36 pace 11:00/mile (Redondo Pier to turn around point in Hermosa not sure past 22nd street)
Lap 3 4.33 miles 45:58 pace 10:36/mile (turn around point to mile 0 in Redondo Beach)
Lap 4 0.31 miles 7:41 pace 25:26 (steep hill home)slow walk! stopped for awhile to look at the ocean!
total distance 9.35 miles total time from door to door 1:46:34

underarmour capri length pants, long sleeve cotton turkey trot shirt
ate apple pie for breakfast (really was that the best choice??)
no alcohol the night before (I guess I do learn a few things)
hate camel pac to carried a water bottle but my arms got tired of carrying it and brought 1 GU pack lemon lime was good!
I need to get over myself and carry the camel pac!!
I was intending to go 10 miles I thought i turned around when my Garmin said 4.7 miles. I need to map my run before I go so I know where to turn back instead of relying on the Garmin
all in all felt good great training run
I am sticking with my plan need to keep the consistent training so I can run the entire Marathon without cramps and fatigue!
