Skated 27 miles in 1:46:50 (15.2 mph), HR 72%, temp 59(!). My first marathon skate of 2009, and a pretty good one -- a full 1 mph faster than yesterday at the same HR (assisted by the optimal temperature). I have a vague goal of averaging 15.0 mph during the WR attempt, so I'm pleased when I can knock out laps at that speed at a low HR.
Afterward, to the gym for leg and core strength exercises. Time today 3:00.
