Six at GMP

The first long pace workout of this marathon training cycle is Done, with a capital 'D' ;)

My legs felt tired a few miles into the 15.5 mile run in Alameda, but the pace section woke them up with a jolt....Actually, the 6 miles at goal marathon pace (GMP) felt a-okay, and I hit my 8:58 pace!

I cheered the successful long run with pumpkin beers this afternoon...It's amusing that *this* is my "easy" week- with a 15 mile run that ends with faster miles! But I know that next week will be a tough training week, so I'm going to try to get extra sleep this weekend and pamper my legs for a few days :P And I also know that NYC is getting closer & closer--hooray!
