Running 13 miles with my boy!
Running 13 miles with my boy!

This week was pretty awesome.  Solid training + 2 solid runs with my boy.  Good stuff.  Here is how things shook out:

Monday: rest & arm weights

Tuesday: Intervals.  I did a 10 minute warm up; 12 x 400m @ 6:58 pace; 400m recoveries; 15 minute cool down with 4 striders.  72 minutes / 8.8 miles.

Wednesday: 52:30 / 6 miles / 8:45 pace.

Thursday: Pace run.  10 minutes warm up; 7 miles at goal race pace (7:35-7:40); 10 minute cool down with 4 strides.  74 minutes / 9.3 miles / 7:55 average pace.

Friday: I had gone out of town for work right after my pace run Thursday and didn’t get home until late in the afternoon Friday.  It was hot and full sun, but I got it done during a nice easy run with my husband.  50 minutes / 5.5 miles / 9:08 pace + arm weights.

Sunday:  My son got home from a week away at camp!  He was exhausted and sick, but we had a wonderful easy run on the trail.  We did 3 miles together around a 9:35 pace; then I picked it up on my own.  61 minutes / 7 miles with 4 strides / 8:54 average pace.

Sunday: Long run.  I got up bright and early to run 5.4 miles on the trail on my own (8:55 pace). It was a beautiful morning.  Then I met up with my son to run 13 around a local lake.  It was great, but man it started getting hot the last 3 miles.  But we rocked it and last mile was the fastest mile.  2 hours, 50 minutes – 18.4 miles.

Total: 8 hours / 55 miles
