Wet 5, Dry 5

Monday 5.0 miles/43:39/8:44 average pace

Supposed to be an easy 4, but Zach and I ran on a new trail by his office in the pouring rain, and it just felt good to run faster. And we tagged on an extra mile (all part of this week's revised schedule- see below).

Tuesday 5.0 miles/43:00 total/8:36 average pace

Tempo workout on TM:
mile 1 10:00 pace (6.0 mph) warm up

mile 2 8:00 pace (7.5 mph)
mile 3 7:50 pace (gradually incresed to 7.8 mph)
mile 4 7:40 pace (increased to 8.0 mph)

mile 5 9:30 pace (6.3 mph) cool down

Then I saw a huge pretty double rainbow as I headed back to the apartment! yay.

OK, so revised plan for the week:

(note: I'm really trying to stick to my training schedule as closely as possible, but life gets in the way occasionally. So, I"m doing my best here to maintain the basic structure of the week)

Mon 5 GA done
Tues 5 w/ 3 LT done
Wed 8 GA/Easy
THurs off
Fri 4 easy
Sat 16
Sun off

I'm also shooting for a couple good weights workouts and/or some yoga. :)
