9 miles

3 nbhrd loops; 8.79 miles, 1:26:44/137 (9:52 min/mi)

Took it really easy, especially at the beginning. First loop was 30:04/133. Second was 28:31/138, and last was 28:18/138

My foot supinator doohickey isn't getting better quickly but I don't think it's getting worse. OK for an easy 9 miles. Not sure how it will hold up for a hard 26.2. A few times when I pushed off with my left foot it hurt. I'm not sure how long I'll be able to generate any "speed." (speed in quote for slow guy).

Comparing to my slow runs the week before the marathon (they were two lappers):
  • lap 1: 28:04/137, 27:58/136, 28:04/139, 30:04/133
  • lap 2: 28:03/142, 27:57/141, 28:01/142, 28:31/138

Today's lap 2 was comparable. Is 10 sec/mi slower and a slower 1st lap worth 3-4 bpm or was today a slight bit better? Doesn't matter. Definitely no worse.
