This is a two-loop course, so it is a challenge mentally to keep going after you finish the first half. I came through the first half in 1:47:XX, so I was pretty close to where I wanted to be. At around mile 15 I started to feel an immense amount of fatigue set in and from this point on things pretty much blew up on me. I ended up running the marathon in a total time of 4:41:50, so not even close to my goal. I&#39;m planning on running another marathon, though I&#39;m not certain when or which one that will be.</p> Sat, 27 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 26, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-26-2015.html <p>(Day before marathon race), Total time of 14:45, so 7:16 avg. mile/pace.<br /> &nbsp;</p> Fri, 26 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 25, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-25-2015.html <p>&nbsp;(Back home in University Place, WA) Total time of 32:13, so a 7:30 avg. mile/pace.</p> Thu, 25 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 24, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-24-2015.html <p>(Back home in University Place, WA) Total time of 31:53, so a 7:24 avg. mile/pace.</p> Wed, 24 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 23, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-23-2015.html <p>Total time of 28:12, so a 6:56 avg. mile/pace.</p> Tue, 23 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 22, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-22-2015.html <p>Total time of 30:03, so a 7:20 avg. mile/pace.</p> Mon, 22 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 20, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-20-2015.html <p>Total time of 1:18:24, so a 7:50 avg. mile/pace.</p> Sat, 20 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 19, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-19-2015.html <p>Total time of 30:31, so a 7:34 avg. mile/pace.</p> Fri, 19 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 18, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-18-2015.html <p>Total time of 29:58, so a 7:25 avg. mile/pace.</p> Thu, 18 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 17, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-17-2015.html <p>Total time of 30:46, so a 7:34 avg. mile/pace.</p> Wed, 17 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 16, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-16-2015.html <p>Total time of 28:46, so a 7:11 avg. mile/pace.</p> Tue, 16 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 15, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-15-2015.html <p>Total time of 31:51, so a 7:52 avg. mile/pace.</p> Mon, 15 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 13, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-13-2015.html <p>Watch died on me with about 2.5 miles left to go, so I had to estimate- somewhere between 1:15:00-1:20:00 for the total time.</p> Sat, 13 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 12, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-12-2015.html <p>Total time of 31:09, so a 7:39 avg. mile/pace.</p> Fri, 12 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 11, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-11-2015.html <p>Total time of 30:44, so a 7:33 avg. mile/pace.</p> Thu, 11 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 10, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-10-2015.html <p>Total time of 32:22, so a 7:55 avg. mile/pace.</p> Wed, 10 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 09, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-09-2015.html <p>Total time of 30:44, so a 7:37 avg. mile/pace.</p> Tue, 09 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 08, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-08-2015.html <p>Total time of 29:59, so a 7:23 avg. mile/pace.</p> Mon, 08 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 06, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-06-2015.html <p>Total time of 1:16:11, so a 7:36 avg. mile/pace.</p> Sat, 06 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 05, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-05-2015.html <p>Total time of 31:53, so a 7:53 avg. mile/pace.</p> Fri, 05 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 04, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-04-2015.html <p>Total time of 30:27, so 7:32 avg. mile/pace.</p> Thu, 04 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 03, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-03-2015.html <p>Total time of 30:44, so 7:37 avg. mile/pace.</p> Wed, 03 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 02, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-02-2015.html <p>4 miles in 31:34, 7:50 avg. mile/pace.</p> Tue, 02 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 01, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-01-2015.html <p>4 miles in 31:14, 7:46 avg. mile/pace.</p> Mon, 01 Jun 2015 06:00:00 Sat, May 30, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-30-2015.html <p>10.13 miles in 1:28:40, 8:45 avg/mile pace.</p> Sat, 30 May 2015 06:00:00 Fri, May 29, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-29-2015.html <p>4 miles in 32:08, 8:00 avg. mile/pace.</p> Fri, 29 May 2015 06:00:00 Thu, May 28, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-28-2015.html <p>30:13 overall time, 7:31 avg./mile pace. Felt like I sped up quite a bit in the last half mile. The plan for this Saturday is to run 20 miles. I&#39;m still feeling sick (congestion in the sinuses mainly), but I&#39;m going to give it a try and see how it goes. My first marathon is about a month away.</p> Thu, 28 May 2015 06:00:00 Wed, May 27, 2015 http://miketaylor.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-27-2015.html <p>4 miles in 29:24, so about a 7:19 avg./mile pace.</p> Wed, 27 May 2015 06:00:00
