Mid-week had me feeling pretty run down with either a terrible cold or allergies. Thursday I had to leave work early go get cold medicine and keep my sneezing and nose blowing away from my co-workers. Friday I practically fell asleep while working. But by Sunday evening I am feeling on the mend.
Monday - holiday! I did not get up to run early, so I ran late in the evening after the kids went to bed. I do not normally do that, but I hate missing a Monday run. Or any run for that matter. It was supposed to be a pace workout of some sort, but the heat was killer. I did the miles to plan, but not the pace.
6.50 miles, 59:17minutes, 9:07/mile avg
Tuesday - Rest day
Wednesday - Maintenance run, 4.55 miles, 43:07 minutes, 9:29/mile avg pace
Thursday - Pace workout including warm up, 3 x .75 mile repeats (5:58/5:50/5:37), cool down. It was tough to get warmed up, but I felt great at the finish.
6.0 miles, 51:55minutes, 8:39/mile avg
Friday - Maintenance run, 4.00miles, 37:16minutes, 9:19/mile avg pace. Finally got a running buddy today, Jennifer joined me and it the time passes much faster!
Saturday - Long run, 10.6 miles, 1:38:33, 9:18/mile avg pace. Jennifer and I ran around the neighborhood and knocked out an easy 10 miles.
Sunday - Rest. Much needed after Saturday's busy day with the kids.
Total miles: 32.65. This was a 'lighter' week, next week each day is a little further than this week. Now is the time to focus on getting lots of sleep, foam rollin', and the dreaded nutrition.
I got a new yoga video (Yoga for Athletes) that I am excited to try next week.
