Ran with a group today for the first part of my long run with Trent from RunningAhead and a co-worker. Co-worker has a natural 3:30 marathon pace, with a BQ under his belt. Trent led the way, and we managed to keep exactly on my “target” LR/ER pace of 9’18”.
Total Time (h:m:s) 1:33:05 (9:18 pace)
Distance (mi ) 10.01
Elevation Gain (ft) +489 / -505
Then we proceeded to stand around for 18 minutes of blabbing/recovery… then I finished my “18 miler” by getting lost on the way back from downtown:
Total Time (h:m:s) 1:29:33 (9:48 pace)
Distance (mi ) 9.12
Elevation Gain (ft) +402 / -399
