Run Journal - #29

Details: 10 Mile
Shoes: Hoka Huaka

So ends the week of the Hoka. I guess I'm not a convert to the brand like so many others. I got to the point where I didn't feel like I was working harder than I should be, but I never fell in love with them.

Today was the 10 mile run (actually 9.68 apparently) and no complaints. I was a little more tired than last week but I'll chalk that up to normal variability.


That pace time is for the last lap, not overall. My overall pace was 10:18. The extra strap you see to left is the Mio Link heart rate monitor. As I mentioned in a previous post, it looks like my Scosche HRM has give up the ghost. Very disappointing. The Mio is fine, really, but the Scosche was just a touch more comfortable.

1 Hour and 38 minutes. Am I really running for almost two hours? Cool!

I don't take my phone with me on these longer runs, so I don't have any mid-run pics, but here are a few of the group after the run as they are cooling off.



 
This is actually everyone all together; the walkers, 5k, 10, half marathon, and full marathon folks. My much smaller group is called Red Runners. We're about 20-30 strong with a target pace between 10:30 and 12:00 min/mi. They break the groups up pace and distance so that they can start at different times but all get back to this location at "roughly" the same time. It's quite the eclectic group. Anyone can participate in a marathon; you don't have to be a speed demon. You can even walk most or all of it, which is what some of these folks will be doing.
