Sorry bout the rash of posts lately...

but i had to throw todays stats for the last 12 miler before the bayshore

mile 1.....7:58 cu 7:58
Mile 2....7:54 15:52
mile 3....7:43 23:35
Mile 4....7:40 31:15
mile 5....7:43 38:58
mile 6....7:45 46:43
mile 7....7:44 54:27
mile 8....7:51 1:02:18
mile 9....7:51 1:10:09
mile 10...8:02 1:18:10
mile11...8:14 1:26:25
mile 12...8:12 1:34:37

1:34:37....not bad for a blustery....rainy day

it was a big circle, 3 miles into the wind, 6 not, 3 into the wind at the end.....serious pickup in wind at the end.....rain started to fall at mile 6.

My personal goal for this run was 1:36:00, i just wanted to finish a major long run under a 8 minute pace.

Now the taper can begin.....i have every other day runs scheduled for the next two weeks until the bayshore.

With the exception of wishing i was a few lbs lighter, and really i have no one to blame but me, i think i am ready.

thanks for reading
