7/12 Run

12 miles, 8:31 pace. The pace was actually a bit slower than I would have liked. I was shooting for a 8:15 pace – which is actually a bit slower than my marathon goal pace of around 8:00. (Maybe I need to reevaluate my marathon goals….) The good part about this run was that I was able to squeeze it in on Saturday morning while still in California. I was afraid that I would have it looming over me for an already busy Sunday. Of course, ‘squeezing it in’ meant that I had to get up at 5:00 am and hammer out the miles prior to finishing up packing.

I think that the run was slower than expected because I was just a bit tired from my vacation to San Diego. Lots of swimming and boogie boarding took its toll on my legs.
