16 Miles at 4am?!?

That's right! 4am! With renewed dedication, I set out this morning, determined to complete my long run for the week prior to sunrise. Success! I usually save my long run for the weekend, but I am running a 5K this weekend, so I didn't want to put a race and long run back-to-back. It went fairly well. Here's the low down.

Mileage: 16.00
Time/Pace: 2:35:59/9:41
Avg HR: 160
T/W:25 (15 WC), dusting of snow
Best Split (mile)/Worst Split (mile): 9:23 (5)/10:08 (15)

Still missing my goal of a 9:23 pace, but only 2 miles over the 10 minute mark.


  1. YOu are better than I am--I can barely get my butt out of bed at 6 for p90x!

  2. That's awesome - such dedication doing 16 miles before sunrise. :) Working out in the mornings is a great way to make sure that you fit it in. Good luck with your training.
