Race date: May 9th.
This will be my consolation prize. Since it's about 3 weeks out from San Diego, if any of you guys doing the marathon are looking for a tune-up race, this will be perfect!
But hurry - it's about 60% full as of this morning!
Got in 6 miles this morning with 2 miles at goal marathon pace (target 8:09 - 8:29). Heartrate's still disturbingly high.
Ended up averaging 7:53 or so because my old, antiquated Garmin Forerunner 301 is a piece of crap and keeps thinking I'm either running 6 or 10 minutes miles pace at any given point.
Time for an upgrade? Hellz yeah.
