    20 miles, last long run before pre-marathon taper, @ 8'30" pace. Pretty happy as this was after a long day at work.

    Slow 5 miles last night. Tonight I have my first 5K - I ran one a couple years ago but I wasn't really trying for a decent time back then. I'm hoping I can finish in under 27 minutes, which is really slow for most here, but any distance at about 8:30-8:45 per mile is an accomplishment for me :D

    3.4 miles this morning as my last taper run prior to tomorrow's race. I wouldn't call it an awe-inspiring run. Felt pretty rusty but ran well. Weather looks nice and should be good conditions. Hard to believe 16 training weeks are over. Should be exciting.


    Good luck BG. Nothing wrong with that pace or time. You run against yourself and what you are capable of performing. Don't worry about what time others run unless you are trying for an age group medal.

    4 miles yesterday morning. Might try to sneak out for a quick 5K this afternoon.

    4.6 starting before the sun was properly up. Felt fast and like I was pushing hard, but the clock said otherwise. Not slow, but oh, well...

    Today I ran 4km for my fast run. Working my way up to getting a solid 10km time.

    Any tips for running 10km would be appreciated as my longest run has only been 8km.

    Finished my 5K in just under 28 minutes, pretty close to my goal. I'm used to running with headphones in with an app that tells me my pace, distance, time, etc. so it was really weird running without any of that tonight. I couldn't tell how far along I was or what my pace was, and had no idea of the time until I saw the clock at the finish. How do you guys keep track of that stuff during a race?

    I finished in an all out sprint down the home stretch, and still felt like I had a ton of energy, so I probably ran slower than I needed to. But it was good to get some experience in an actual race, and I'm looking forward to improving my time on the next one!

    Beatlegeuse, I have run my last couple of races with my iPhone in my hand so that I could keep on top of my pace. Less than ideal, but better than running blind. If you don't want to do that, you can wear a watch with a timer and have an idea of what your mile landmarks are.

    I tend to use a Garmin 410 - excellent bit of kit and the web app does everything the iPhone based things do + heart rate data. Really good stuff in my very amateur opinion..

    Did 4x1000m in 3:50mins with 400m rest today (+ warmup / cooldown, of course). Wanted to do 5x1000 but it's been quite some time since I did these tough intervals so I thought ... next time.
    Probably going for a swim in the evening..

    +1. I use a Polar watch that has all my relevant stats. Works great. I can't run holding anything in my hands.

    Ran 26.2 today. Had a great run. Felt strong until about 22 miles into it. Only 1 problem with hamstring seizing up. Was very weird and never had it before. Stopped me cold. Worked it out quickly and back on the course. Finished in 3:33:43. Very respectable for me. 15th out of 98 in AG. Time for a nap and then there are a few 18+ old bottles of bourbon and scotch that are waiting for me to celebrate with them.

    thanks guys. sounds like a good workout sam. does the race adrenaline really carry someone that much through a run? i.e. why does 7-8 miles at pace ensure that 13.1 of it can be done through the entire half? or is it due to the accumulated rest/"carbo loading" - not to dispel your suggestion, but i've never done a road race before so i'm quite curious!

    i did 7.7 today at an 8 minute pace. i'm not quite sure how that happened, even after double checking the timing and the course map. i'm wondering if it's because of the flatness of today's run---i.e. the 13.5er i did was all uphill for the last 4.

    either way...feels good!

    12 today with an 8k tempo in 2822. Basically hopped in a race at the end of a heavy training run to try my tempo efort/do race simulation.
    Helped the club Im on get 3rd place but still felt like crap and ran the workout backwards.

    Thanks for the tips guys, I'll look in to getting a GPS watch so I have something to track my stats for when I can't run with headphones in.
