Saturday 10.0 miles/1:30:55/9:06 average pace
I lucked out on the weather for this run, avoiding major rain (I did get sprinkled on a little) and overall I felt great. My pace and energy were kind of all over the place, one mile would feel easy and be faster, then I'd feel tired and run slower. But I kept on chugging along and got the miles in. :) This run had one big hill in it which was tough (really really tough!) but I felt good about running up (and down) it without stopping.
4- 9:33 (Big hill!)
6- 9:41 (random slow down)
10- 8:12 (strong finish!)
I took an ice bath after and I think it really helped my legs recover. I am not sore today at all.
We went out last night in San Francsico to the Savanna Jazz club in the Mission and had a blast. The best part was running from the train station to the club in the POURING rain (I don't know why we didn't bring an umbrella or get a cab!). At least we knew where we were going... after calling my Dad so he could look up the address (thanks Dad!) :D It was hysterical. We had a great time and managed to get home at a decent hour.
This morning we went to the gym for a Sunday morning swim, which is a tradition I am starting to love. It doesn't make my legs sore at all, in fact it probably helps after the long run. Plus it's just so fun. I did 20 laps! I did 2 kicking-only for a warm up and one of those at the end, and swam the 17 other laps. I am improving! Today I worked on not stopping for 30 seconds+ after each length, but actually trying to touch the end, come up for a single breath (or 2) and go back. That is hard. I am so impressed with those who can just swim continuously... I am not there yet. Anyway, I swam for 50 minutes total and had loads o' fun.
TOTAL miles for Week 10 of Boston Marathon Training: 25!
Also: 2 weights sessions (pretty much full body for both) and 2 swimming sessions for a total of 1 hour 35 minutes of swimming. No other cardio this week, because swimming kicks the elliptical's ass.
