Time: 2:43:01 min
Distance: 30.95 km
I set out to try and run 5:20 pace for the first 1hr, 5:10 for the second and 5:00 flat for the last hour. I did that mostly until about 2hr15 point, where fatigue hit me. I struggled for another 30 minutes, and stopped on a small hill that killed me. Not impressed with stopping, but I was pretty wrecked at that stage.
SO my next 3hr run I plan to go out super slow for the first 1hr, at 5:30 pace, build to 5:20 at second hour, and hopefully finish without a fade. I really want that as milestone in my longer runs. I have never finished a 3hr run faster than I started, I have consistently faded at the end, and I want to eliminate that.
