18-Mile Record Weekend

Monday, March 24th, 2008 · 2 Comments

This weekend was a great one for running where I set all kinds of new personal records. Saturday morning I ran my longest run to date — 11.04 miles. I ran this near-half-marathon distance not only without stopping for water or a breather, but in record pace (average of 7:48/mile or 7:49, according to the below chart; I’ve noticed that Nike+ sometimes contradicts itself depending on how you’re viewing the data):

It was an awesome run and I felt really good throughout and at the end. It was a Team in Training run at the Niskayuna bike path. What’s Team in Training, you ask? It’s an organization that’s helping me prepare for my marathon while I raise money to fight blood cancers. And yes, you can help!

So Saturday night following my run I went out on the town with Hugh, Jami, Alexis, and Ryan, then woke up Sunday and clocked in another 7.09 miles (average pace: 7:56), bringing my 2-day weekend total to more than 18 miles, and my weekly total to a record 33.21 miles with only 4 runs:

    It was great seeing the faces from Blog Master G live and in person at the UPH U event on Thursday. Hopefully, there will be pictures coming soon (unless the photographer’s camera was damaged by your shirt!)

    You MUST drink water (preferably an electrolyte drink). Do not run that far without it. BAD BAD BAD. Drink even if you are not thirsty.
