i had mixed results at the boston build-up 25k this morning. i missed a sub 2 hour finish by almost 3 minutes, with a 2:02:57 - but the 7:55 pace was solidly under my 8 minute target. i had run 7:40's thru the first 10 miles, then slowed a bit for 11 and 12. but it was the last 3 miles that told the tale because i hit the wall (so to speak) and was passed by at least a dozen runners during the last 5k :(
still, it was almost 7 minutes faster than my finish last year (that said, i had run the colchester half the day before the 2011 25k... yesterday was an easy 6.5 miles).
here are the race results from clubct.
