I purposely ran seven days of at least marathon distance this Movember so as to have a start point for trying to figure out a likely pace to aim at for my first attempt at multi-day marathoning in March; 7 marathons in 7 days.
Undoubtedly, whilst the miles I completed, in several runs throughout each day, were easier than doing 26.2 miles in one single effort, they do enable me to make an educated guess at a possible pace.
The Weds, Thur and Sun miles were slower paced due to helping runners during Run England sessions, so I am happy to average those days out alongside the other runs at about 9.45. This gives an equivalent marathon time of 4 hours 16 minutes. If I could complete all the efforts in March in that kind of time I would be more than happy.
A little jog to/from evening session for a modest 7 mile day. Looking like my TDC deficit will hold at about 350 miles till the new year. The big 3K for 2014 is also looking good.
