7.11 at 7:30 pace.  I think I will back off a bit this week with the mileage.  My legs are pretty sore and I am leaning towards running the SLC marathon this week (but strictly to get the mileage, not necessarily to race).

I am going to run the marathon tomorrow with Mark.  Our plan is to go 8:30-9:00 minute miles for the first 20, and then see if we can't drop it down to 7:30 for the last 6 miles.  No need to kill ourselves in this one as we are wanting to focus more on the Ogden marathon next month.

Goal was to go about 8:30-9:00 minute miles for the first 20 or so, and then drop the time down to 7:30s.  I was trying to make this a training run for the Ogden marathon and my brother is getting ready for the 50 miler that’s coming up, so we didn’t want to kill ourselves too much.

Basically, things went as planned.  We were going quite a bit faster than planned for most the race, just because it was hard to slow ourselves down.  Things felt really easy for the first 8-9 miles.  Miles 9 through about 14 were the prettiest of the race.  Legs started to get stiff around mile 16.  We probably began to take a bit longer at the aid stations as well. 

I usually have problems with marathons around mile 20.  That is where the mental battle usually begins for me and that is why I wanted to try and bring my times down for miles 20-26.  I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it at the end.  About mile 21 we took off and it was great to start passing so many people.  Felt like we were really trucking along, and I think we both felt really good.  About mile 24.5 my brother broke away from me.  I couldn’t keep up with him.  I could definitely tell that he has done a lot more long runs than I have.  There was a killer hill at the end of State Street.  It was rough and I walked it for about 10 seconds.

I have some serious doubts about being able to qualify for Boston at the Ogden Marathon, but I think I’m going to go for it.  I might crash and burn in the last part of that race, but oh well.  Great race today though.
