Also I've felt this week has had more quality miles as well as just quantity.
- Monday: Tempo run. 8 miles with 5 at threshold pace. Was hoping that would be about 8:15 but ended up being neared to 8:30. I thought straight uphill and into a headwind would be fine. What? Anyway I worked my ass off for every single one of those miles so I don't care what the garmin says. This was followed by a steak dinner with my visiting parents and then a 2.5 mile walk to get rid of the meat sweats.
- Tuesday: Rest. Or two walks (am and pm) plus some strength work. It was sunny....definitely a two walk day.
- Wednesday: Pyramid interval session at the track. Fun! No really....I think I'm starting to like the track.
- Thursday: 6 miles with the club. 9 minute miles so faster than I would like for a recovery run but comfortable enough. Will make up for it with extra slow long run miles.
Pretty good so far!
The plan is something short tomorrow 5-7 depending on weather and then long Saturday. Hoping for 12 miles. I have visitors this weekend so taking Sunday as a rest day which is good as I'm over-scheduled as hell the following weekend....but in a good way. Time with new friends, time with my kids and a road race with the club. Eek!
