Kenyan Way Long Run #1

10.07 miles, 1:26:56, 8:37 pace, Avg HR = 147, Max HR = 167

Today was my first Kenyan Way long run session. After running Kenyan Nights over the summer, I decided that I'd like to train with Sean Wade's group through the fall and run a marathon. Since I've never run before, I took a stab at my anticipated finish time. I figure that I can run an 8:00 mile pace for a marathon, after I've trained for a few months. At that pace I'll finish in 3:30.

So I took off with the 3:30 group this morning. After four miles I dropped them to pick up the pace. Also they were only running 8, and I wanted to get in 10 miles. You can see the difference in pace after the fourth mile. You can also see the slowdown at mile 9 and 10. I'm not a distance runner yet, but that should come in time.

All in all this was a really fun time, and I look forward to running more long runs with KW.

9:11, 9:23, 9:01, 8:44, 8:08, 8:08, 8:10, 8:19, 8:30, 8:20
