Thursday 12.0 miles/1:50:00/9:10 average pace
Ran the first 5.5 miles with Zach at 5:00 am, then finished up on my own listening to This American Life. I've been pretty sore the last couple days, but I felt ok while running and actually a little better afterwards. Mainly I was sore in my quads, but my calves are tight too. I've also been really tired the last couple days, so I'm trying to eat more and get more sleep. I know this is a big week, but I have a few more to go and I can't burn out now! I know I can get through it... it's nice having Maritza encouraging me since she was right where I am just a few weeks ago. Now she's a week away from NYC Marathon and getting pumped! I'm excited for her, and I'm excited to be a week away from my own marathon and done with all this freaking training. :)
Also, yesterday I did manage to go to the pool for a super short 500 yards and a looooong soak in the hot tub. I miss swimming regularly! I am going to try to go this weekend again if I can.
So 6 miles tomorrow morning, then 20 on Saturday! yay! Have a great rest of the week kids! :)
