Starting to train for Road2Hope Marathon, November 7 2010, Hamilton Ontario Canada
Did 14k yesterday, typically at around 5:20/k (8:32/mile) -- but I ramped it up to 4:42/k (7:31/mile) for a mile near the finish. It was relatively hot (26 degrees C.) and definitely humid -- plus there was a half-decent breeze on the way home, coming from the southwest. A tough run -- I was drenched in sweat and feeling overheated at the end of it -- but nowhere near what I'll have to get to over the course of the next 16 weeks.
