It's been quite a while since I've run farther than 6 miles - I haven't looked, but I suspect it was probably back on May 22nd when I did the NCRC Classic Half-marathon race, which took me right around 2-1/2 hours. So, today's LSD run of 8 miles could have been a challenge, but it turned out to be not too bad. I finished the run at an 11:15/mile pace, and managed to keep the same basic pace throughout. I'm still doing a run-walk program where I run for 6 minutes and walk for 1, repeating until done. I wasn't really out of breath at the end, although my legs were starting to get tired. I also haven't been moving super fast the remainder of the day.
The training program I'm doing includes increasingly long runs each Saturday, so next week I'm scheduled to do 10. The weather today was pretty good - I over-dressed a little, as I took off my hat and gloves at Mile 2 and my arm warmers at Mile 3, but then settled into a comfortable zone.
