The final long run: 22.5 miles
I ran for 2 hours and 29 minutes today, and felt very comfortable, I did not push the pace, since I have an upcoming marathon in 2 weeks. The distance ended up being right around 22.5 miles. It felt good to get the long run out of the way on a Saturday. I ran on a rolling hills course around my hometown and ran from 4:45 pm until dusk-7:15 pm. After tomorrow this week's mileage will be my highest yet, I am already at 88-89 miles after today. After tomorrow, I will post each day's run this past week as the peak of my marathon training this fall.
