Plan: Recovery Run (9:30 Min/Mile) **NO PACE/RELAX**

Great run with my hubby around the pond. Ran the first 5 miles with him, & the last mile on my own. Legs felt VERY heavy for the 1st 3 miles, but then opened up after that. Hot, but not that bad. Drank Gatorade at miles 3 & 6. Had my coconut water, wwbagel w peanut butter & honey, about 45 min before the run.

6 miles in 1:00:30 (avg pace 10:05) AVG HR 135 Cardiac Drift: 148

Garmin showed splits as:

M1-10:18 AVG HR 130 Cardiac Drift: 146
M2-10:16 AVG HR 138 Cardiac Drift: 148
M3-10:08 AVG HR 132 Cardiac Drift: 142
M4-10:15 AVG HR 135 Cardiac Drift: 143
M5-10:05 AVG HR 135 Cardiac Drift: 147
M6- 9:28 AVG HR 138 Cardiac Drift: 147

Felt great to up the speed for the last mile. Legs feel good, no ill affects from yesterdays 16 mile long run in the heat/humidity. Woo Hoo:)!! Enjoyed Coconut Water right after the run, and then had my COFFEE:)!!

I'm new to the whole "marathon" training thing. I've done two halfs this year, but the full one, yea, it is wigging me out. I'm curious about coconut water....
