Switching to a time base for my runs

Starting with today, I'm using a time-base instead of a distance-base for specifying the length of my runs, which will all be long slow distance. This will have the advantage that on days that I'm tired I'll run slower and thus a shorter distance in the same time, and on days that I feel great, I'll run faster and thus farther. The result is that I'll have an automatic adjustment on the miles that I run. For example, I ran faster during the second half of my run this morning and went about 1/4 mile farther in the second 15 minutes than I did during the first 15 minutes of the run.
