Two miles warm up, six miles at 6:20 pace and half a mile cool down. Average heart rate 158 bpm. This will be the last speed workout before the San Francisco Marathon on July 29th 2018. It went well considering a calf pull a few weeks back. This puts me somewhere around a 3 hour 15 min marathon result if all goes well.
If my annoying calf strain fixes itself before July 29th, I will be running The San Francisco Marathon for the 10th time. I have run marathons in a few other cities but nothing beats a run across the Golden Gate Bridge in the morning.
The 2018 course has some new twists and turns that I have not seen in the past. The climb to the start of the Golden Gate Bridge is new and so is the turn around an the other end. I am a bit of a data nerd for this marathon as I have years of personal tracker info that I use to create my annual pace notes.
