21 mile progression run with Jesse and CAR. Beautiful weather.  I am loving my new training group so far.  There are a few guys at my level who are great to run with.

The plan for today was to start slow and move into easy for 1/3 or so then pick it up the next 1/3 and cruise at marathon pace for the end.  Here are my sections:

7:17, 7:27, 7:45, 7:15, 7:21, 7:10, 7:02

6:43, 7:01, 6:14, 6:32, 6:28, 6:28, 6:17

5:55, 6:02, 5:47, 5:47, 5:59, 6:00.

I couldn't make it the full 21 because I really needed to use the bathroom!  Luckily a port-o-john was there before I exploded.

Very nicely done. That's a real quality LR.

Thanks Jake! This new group that I've joined has some fast guys to run with and a coach for course support. Much better than going it alone for a long run like this.
