Plan for the week: Four weeks out from the race! Finished off my “recovery week” over the weekend and then a pretty normal training week.
Saturday 2/20: A full day at the beach! The majority of the day was spent lounging around eating snacks, reading, playing solitaire and going for a beautiful (though surprisingly steep and rooty) trail run! Run: 5.5 miles (trail, 1,000+ ft elevation gain)
Sunday 2/21: Drove home from the beach. Rest day!
Monday 2/22: Run: 6 easy + core
Tuesday 2/23: Lonely workout. Run: 7 x 5 minutes on, 1 minute off = 9.5 miles
Wednesday 2/24: Run – 6.3 miles easy with friends
Thursday 2/25: Another lonely workout. Run – 7 mile tempo @ 6:45 avg. pace = 9.5 miles
Friday 2/26: Easy swim + core
Total Mileage: 36.8 miles
Summary: A nice normal week : )
