First Official Marathon Workout

I just got back from my first workout in my new marathon training plan! I did 2x1.75 miles at what was supposed to be lactate threshold pace. I actually ran just under 7min/mile pace for both intervals, with the first mile in 6:41 (oops) - I must have been excited to get started on these workouts... Hopefully I'll have that level of enthusiasm for the next few months and not just on the first workout! I've got to get the pacing under control though - it shouldn't take a big uphill to get me to hit my splits.

First one done, just 14 more weeks to go...

Distance: 8.55 miles
Time: 67 minutes
