Another solid week in the books.
Monday – rest
Tuesday – 75 minutes easy with 4 strides – 8.44 / 8:57 pace.
Wednesday – 62 minutes – 7 miles / 8:55 pace. I also logged 1.5 at GOTR in the evening with some strides.
Thursday - unplanned rest day. I had a very early morning meeting and way too busy day, so my run fell by the wayside.
Friday – Tempo miles! 87 minutes. 2 mile warm up (9:04 pace); then 4 x 1 mile at a target of 7:06-7:15 pace with 1 minute recoveries in between. Actual: 7:07, 7:08, 7:13 and 7:14. I then did a 4.1 mile cool down with 4 strides (8:57 pace). Felt good to shake the dust off.
Saturday I was hurting a bit. My husband and I had a big 40th birthday party on Friday night. We stayed up WAY too late and had WAY too much fun. So I woke up with a head ache and a head cold. Ugh. Ran 45 minutes easy, but nothing about it felt easy. 5 miles / 8:55 pace.
Sunday I worked all day and then got out for an early evening run. It had rained all day and was only in the 60s. 2 hours, 5 minutes / 14 miles / 8:59 pace. This was the longest run I’ve logged in quite some time.
Total: 46.5 miles / 6 hours, 49 minutes
