Kenyan Way Long Run #3 - Strong Showing

12.16 miles, 1:39:48, 8:12 pace, Avg HR = 146, Max HR = 162

After last week's collapse trying to keep up with the 3:15 marathon group, I was uneasy about attempting 12 with them. Couple that with a late Friday night (with a few beers), and I certainly didn't feel up to it. But alas, I gave it a go, and I felt great over the course of the run. There was never a point where I thought I was in over my head, and I probably could have easily run another 1-2 miles without any problems at the same pace.

This was particularly assuring, because I've never run so far at such a quick pace. It boosted my confidence, and I'm excited about next week's long run.

Mile splits:
8:21, 8:19, 8:18, 8:24, 8:05, 8:15, 8:01, 7:54, 8:01, 8:04, 7:52, 7:43

Check out the mostly negative splits:
