10 mile training run

I just finished up one of my last runs before I go to New York. On the schedule was a 10 mile run.
This last week, the right tibia was on again, off again with all kinds of pain in it. I am now thoroughly convinced that my shin pain has been a stress fracture. Not severe - but enough to set me back a couple months and set my sights a lot lower for any upcoming running events.
But, after a couple days of rest, it was time to get one more long run in the bank. I took a couple ibuprofen and headed out the door. It was a beautiful October morning - heavy dew, breeze from the southwest, and 37 degrees.
The run went well. It is starting to feel like I am running - not slogging anymore.
Came in with 10.07 miles in 1:20:57 for a 8:02/mile pace.
I am thinking that I will shoot for a sub-3:30 at NYC.

Good luck and have fun in NYC, and afterwards, take some serious time off and really heal so we can do the PF Chang RNR marathon in Phoenix.

Nice Job today.

Sub 3:30.... by 2 seconds.

Man, you know how to pace.

Hope you had a good time.
