Marathon Training – Long Run#1

I’ve got $12 in my shopping fund as of today.  I did my first “long run” of my official marathon training.  It was 6.16 miles, which isn’t terribly long, but it was the longest run I’ve done since my half marathon over a month ago.

I was attempted to run an 11:30 pace, but I didn’t quite – my average pace was 10:46 (due mostly to miles 1 & 5, which were 10 minute miles).  I feel good, though!  Next weekend I’m in Seattle (yay!) so I’m not sure what I’ll do for my long run.  Maybe I can get it in Friday morning before I leave.
