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. ย I also logged 1.5 at GOTR in the evening with some strides.

Thursdayย – unplanned rest day. ย I had a very early morning meeting and way too busy day, so my run fell by the wayside.

Friday – Tempo miles! 87 minutes. ย 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. ย Actual: 7:07, 7:08, 7:13 and 7:14. ย 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. ย My husband and I had a big 40th birthday party on Friday night. ย We stayed up WAY too late and had WAY too much fun. ย So I woke up with a head ache and a head cold. ย Ugh. ย Ran 45 minutes easy, but nothing about it felt easy. ย 5 miles / 8:55 pace.

Sunday I worked all day and then got out for an early evening run. ย It had rained all day and was only in the 60s. 2 hours, 5 minutes / 14 miles / 8:59 pace. ย This was the longest run I’ve logged in quite some time.

Total: 46.5 miles / 6 hours, 49 minutes
