I am getting ready for the JJ100, so I decided to jog down to Belmont Shore and “compete” in Mark’s Beach Blast 30K. I decided also that it would be a pacing race, meaning that I would do my run at the pace that I wanted to do JJ… slow.
I felt a little on the cruddy side, and doing about 2 miles BEFORE the race didn’t help that much. For comparison, Mark’s time was approximately twice as fast as mine! 4:09 equated to about 4.2 miles per hour, or a brisk walk. But, I guess, since JJ is loops and this was loops, it all comes down to good practice.
