25K Pace Question
Here is a video RW put together, not that I run fast like these guys, but I did grow up in Wisconsin.
I've been pondering what pace to run the hilly, 16 of them, 25K race on Labor Day. My thoughts are aiming towards a 6:25-6:30 pace per mile. The 6:25 would give me a marathon PR by a slight amount. This is a mindshift from chunking 5-7 minutes off to get back to ten years ago. A slower progression, come from behind maybe what's needed to post a PR for '09.
Training Run - 5.00 mi @ 40:00 (8:00 pace)
Training Run - 4.50 mi @ 29:24 (6:32 pace)
Training Run - Haskell Field - 5.00 mi @ 41:41 (8:20 pace)
