Long Not So Slow Day

Today was the long slow day. We went to our usual venue starting at Venice Beach and I figured that I'd do the whole walk with whatever speed my first mile time would be. I was surprised that it was under 13 minutes, it was only a warm up, but that's how I set my pace. I also saw one of the participants from Dave McGovern's clinic out there--but she was going way too fast for me to keep up so we just exchanged polite hellos.

Anyway, here are the times for the 8 mile walk:

Mile 1 - 12:50
Mile 2 - 12:55
Mile 3 - 12:58
Mile 4 - 11:57
Mile 5 - 12:59
Mile 6 - 12:10
Mile 7 - 12:09
Mile 8 - 12:52
Average Pace - 12:36
Total Time - 1:40:54

Whoo hoo! Now if I can get my pace down half a minute and keep it up for 26.2 miles I'd be a happy camper--but now is not the time to beat myself up on the long walks. I have to admit, this one fealt really good and comfortable.

I'm not sure if the mile markers are all that accurate, that 11:57 mile seemed a little out of place, but what followed that was crossing the bridge at the Santa Monica Pier. Whoa, that took a lot out of me but was able to recover and pick up the pace again.

In any case, it is all good.

If 강원랜드 쪽박걸 you are going to be the supplier all night, then do not have|you do not have} to buy chips. You can merely own all of the chips within the party and sell them to people as they need chips. You are effectively the financial institution and should finance all winnings and collect all losses incurred by the players. This choice opens you as much as} bigger positive aspects or losses, and likewise makes it logistically tougher to let different people be the supplier.
