Training week 7 Long Run 10/31/2010

My Halloween was not spent like most!
I have to admit, this 12 miles went down pretty easy!! Much better than Wednesday 6 mile run (I will recap that a little later on).I am so excited that 12 miles is not too difficult anymore, I have come such a long ways since the beginning of this year! 

For this run I stopped every two miles to take a minute walking break and at mile 4 and 8 to eat my Gu's. I am planning on walking through every water station for the marathon, there are 18, and training to walk every two miles for hydration makes since for me and my heart rate appreciates the breaks too. :) I was holding my pace back the whole way, which encourages me because I am getting faster!      


Here are my splits!

Now on to Wednesdays horrible 6! Seriously, I had the worst run of my life on Wednesday. It must have been a combination of a few things:
1. Spent Tuesday at the hospital with my Husbands Father.
2. Ate a Chimichanga Tuesday at Arribas Mexican Food
3. Didn't wake up early to run, instead I ran in the late afternoon during rush hour!

I will not be running in rush hour any more! Thank goodness this weekends 12 mile run went well. I don't know how I would have felt if it didn't go down like it did!
