As Promised

more for me than for you, honestly... unless you're dying to find out my splits for my supposed-to-be-19-miler-that-ended-up-17. Yeah, didn't think so. Mostly, it's just so I can have them for reference. So here goes:

Mile 1: 11:07
Mile 2: 10:48
Mile 3: 10:45
Mile 4: 11:04
Mile 5: 10:39
Mile 6: 10:49
Mile 7: 10:52
Mile 8: 11:20
Mile 9: 12:10 (lingered around the pit-stop porta-potties waiting on my partner)
Mile 10: 11:30
Mile 11: 12:10
Mile 12: 11:29
Mile 13: 12:02 (first brutal mile back on the exposed trail, into the wind)
Mile 14: 11:41
Mile 15: 11:16
Mile 16: 11:12 (we were getting close to home, plus it's a slight downhill)
Mile 17: 13:41 (monster hill; I ran, but slowly...)

Total time: 3:14:44
Total Distance: 17.0 miles
Avg Pace: 11:27/mile
Calories: 2416

Extrapolated to a full marathon, it comes in at 5:12:51... right about pace to match last time's performance. Plus, with any luck at all, it won't be as brutally windy and cold (and windy... did I mention the wind?) on race day. So, it's an improvement over the last 17-miler, and an improvement over the 18-miler, too. Gotta feel good about that. Now, if this cough I seem to have developed will just gently fade into the night...

Gotta run -- still have laundry to finish and packing to do.
