I’m happy to have completed my second straight 70 mile week feeling strong! I’m a little disappointed I wasn’t able to complete more quality miles this week (especially during Saturday’s long run), but I’m reminding myself that it’s better to be slightly undertrained and healthy than flirt with exhaustion at this point. Ten weeks to the Columbus Marathon!
Monday: 7.1 miles/1:02 in the morning, 3.5/31:33 after work.
Tuesday: 8.1 miles/1:06:35 in the evening. Did my first-ever stroller mile and it was tougher on my upper body than I expected! I think there’s a learning curve here. Handed the stroller off to Patrick to walk with JB and then finished my run. 6x strides.
Wednesday: 10 miles/1:20:37. Patrick bought me a new Garmin! I might have been a little overexcited to use it, as I clocked several miles sub-8. Felt good though! 5x strides.
Thursday: 3.2 miles/30:10 in the morning, 5.2 miles/46:00 after work. Unusually poor sleep last night. JB still doesn’t sleep through the night and I’m okay with a couple feeding sessions, but getting up 3 times is excessive!
Friday: 9.2 miles with Liz! Tested out a pair of Hokas in the last mile+ and was pleasantly surprised.
Saturday: 16 miles. Ran the first 9+ with Liz, and then split off to do some uptempo work. I failed to read the directions for my new Garmin, so I was fumbling to set it to the correct screen and went out way too hard! I settled for 15 minutes averaging 6:20 pace.
Sunday: 8.5 miles/1:09. Ran home from lunch out with the family.
Total: 70.8 miles
