Run Training Post: Easy Distance Run

Great training run today. I have not done many long runs in the recent past so anything over 5 miles seems to be a "long run". I made sure to keep the pace steady and easy through the distance run. Felt good over the distance and probably could have doubled the distance at that pace.

I need to remind myself that as I get more serious about training, I don't want to lose focus on what my goals are. Building endurance right now is important. Speed too, but the more endurance I'm able to build up the easier it will be to keep the pace high for a longer amount of time when it counts.

Training Summary
Distance: 6 Miles
Time: 49:01
Pace: 8:07/Mile
AVG HR: 140 BPM
