Log for July 4th – Training for Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 9th. Goal for the fall and winter marathon season is to break 3:15 for the first time.
- 12.1 mile tempo run – Ran with Ed, Grady, Dawn and John on Old Natchez and Del Rio. Took the first 3 miles as an easy warmup at about 9 minute avg pace. Next 3 miles got progressively faster, and did the last 6 all well under 8 minute avg pace. Best I’ve felt on a run in a long time. Overall average pace was 8:12 per mile.
- 2.25 mile walk – with Olivia and the girls in PW Park.
- No cross training – Had a July 4th event that took all evening, so was not able to do any cross training.
