Out at 5.15 this morning in Alpha Male mode(shorts and tshirt) with 7 friends for my first 10 miler of 2013. It was like the old days as 3 of us in the group go way back to when I was competing. Seems strange to think of 10 miles as a long run when it used to be a standard start to a day. After about 75 mins I was asking myself why am I still running? I'm a cyclist don't you know!!
Importantly the time on feet was longer than I plan to run the half so at least I now know I can run long enough, all I need now is to be fast enough :??)
Pace for HR was good though so all pretty promising for my return to "pacing" on Jan19th before I retire again on Feb 9th.
Can I ask who Traviss is ? I knew one a few years back who collected marathons without really training or racing any.
