I'm having a really good week so far. My legs feel good - I've been icing like crazy, stretching and rolling, etc. Also, I'm feeling a lot more positive and upbeat. Getting excited about the marathon. Here's the run down of my recent workouts.
Bike 16.5 miles
Marine Drive West to Kelly Point Park- fun and scenic ride!
8.0 miles/1:15:29/9:26 average pace
Easy slow run along river. Legs were kinda sore but not bad.
7.0 miles/56:57/8:08 average pace
Today we did the interval workout together. This was nice because Zach paced me and encouraged me along. He didn't run ahead like last time either! It was really nice. We ran 2 miles warm up at an easy pace, then did three one-mile repeats. My splits were:
I'd have to double check my log but I think that 6:43 is my fastest mile ever. :O I know I ran a 6:46 mile in a 5k once but that's it... yay! I felt great too, it wasn't even that hard. I felt like the first one was hardest, the second one was not bad, and the third one was pretty hard. But I didn't feel that exhausted or like I was going to puke, which is how I'd normally feel. Then we did one mile easy to finish up. I am so happy with this run!!
Feeling really good about the rest of the week- I'm scheduled to run 50 miles and know I can do it. Saturday is our last 20 miler and I'm excited about that. It's even supposed to be NICE here all weekend! Well, "partly cloudy." But this is the first time we've seen anything but "rain," "showers," etc on the forecast for a few weeks! I'll take it!
