CIM Training Week 7, Day 7: 10-Mile Taper Long Run


Well, it's not that bad. In fact, I'm quite happy. Today's 10-mile long run means there are no more long runs before CIM. I only have 9 more training runs in 3 sessions before the big day.

I was lamenting after today's run, because my pace wasn't that great. That said, there were a few reasons for being slower, starting with having to wait on a train. In all the runs I've taken on the route I ran today, I've never had to wait for a train on those tracks! Luck, I guess.

Then there was the wind. This morning it wasn't as bad as it was yesterday, but it was bad enough. Speaking of yesterday, KXTV news today said that out at Sacramento Metro Airport the wind was 60mph! I'm guessing the 25mph forecast on AccuWeather yesterday was correct.

Anyway, back to the run. Overall, it wasn't all that bad.

Mile 1: 10:34
Mile 2: 11:19
Mile 3: 11:31
Mile 4: 12:35
Mile 5: 10:58
Mile 6: 14:10
Mile 7: 11:28
Mile 8: 9:59
Mile 9: 12:07
Mile 10: 9:17

Check out Mile 10!

10 miles, 1:54, 11:22/mi average, 1048 calories burned

Tomorrow's my day off from running, and I really don't mind. I think I could completely count next week as rest, but you know what I mean.
