The start of some easy running …

I took yesterday off and today’s run was an easy 5 miler – I added on 6 strides at the end to make it close to six miles.  The pace was around 8:15 with a HR in the high 130s. My legs feel pretty good but not fantastic.  I hope by the end of the week they feel ready to roll.

Yesterday I found this site that allows you to download a Boston Marathon excel file.  The cool thing about it is that it adjusts the pace for each mile based on the difficulty of that mile.  So, for example the first mile is downhill.  Someone who wanted to run 7:20 pace would find that the chart told them that a 7:03 first mile would be the equivalent effort for that mile.  It also calculates pacing based on how you want to run the race – slow start or fast start; no fade or some fade at the end.  Here is the link.
