Saturday 21.00 miles/3:13:16/9:12 average pace
What an amazing run. I actually felt really comfortable the entire time and didn't really tire out at the end. Of course, my legs stiffened up as soon as I stopped running, but even in that last mile I felt good. My pace was even, maybe a bit faster on some downhill stretches. I met up with two really nice ladies and ran with them for a couple of miles, which helped a lot. Didn't turn my music on until about mile 15 or 16. I ate 6 Clif shot Blocks- 2 at a time at 1:15, 2:15, and 2:45 ish. Drank about two and a half bottles of water.
After the run I faced an extremely truncated recovery schedule as we headed down to the SHARKS game about noon. (I usually take my time icing, showering, eating, and then I lay around and nap and moan for at least 2-3 hours!) But we ate lunch in the car on the way and I was pumped up to see the San Jose sharks kick ass for the 8th straight game, including a hat trick by CHEECHOOOOOOOOOO!! Then we went out for pizza, and finally, about 6:00 got home and sat down... and that was it for me. The soreness and exhaustion caught up with me and I did not leave my post on the couch until I went to bed.
Here's my splits just for fun:
