I just cannot keep up with blogging all my runs! This is a reflection of how freaking much I am running, not laziness in posting, I swear.
Monday: 5.0 miles/44:52/8:59 average pace
I did this run yesterday afternoon and ran a relaxed pace. Zach came and met me on his bike with a mile to go and helped me do my strides, which went really well! I felt very fast during those and finished feeling really good. I just now realized I was supposed to do 6 miles though, oops. I'll add a mile to Friday's run instead.
Tuesday: 12 miles/1:41:45/8:29 average pace
Got up really early and was out the door at 5:00 am with Zach. We did 6 miles together at a fast Tempo pace: 7:42 average. It was awesome having someone to pace me for the tempo run (even though it was his normal running pace). It was still hard, but more fun than doing it alone. We made it back home where I grabbed my ipod and ate a clif block (couldn't stomach more than one) and then I headed out for 6 more miles, this time at an easy pace. Listened to Phedippidations and heard my Half Marathon race report, which was cool! :) I was home with lots of extra time before work so I made myself a big omelet breakfast. Yummy! Now I can't stop singing "Give it on up for omletteviiiiille" like in that SNL skit with Justin Timberlake. Random.
Wednesday: rest/cross training
Thursday: 12 miles Medium Long
Friday: 6 miles Easy
Saturday: 20 miles Long
TOTAL miles scheduled: 55! Peak week baby!! :) Race is 5 weeks from Sunday.
