This week represented nothing but fun filled non-training runs. I did the 10k last week and needed a week off. So my goal was to run 70 miles. Because it sounded fun. I usually do 55-60 so not an injury provoking jump in mileage.
Monday :13 miles of hills. 1100 ft of elevation 1:33 minutes. It was needed very badly.
Tuesday: 10 miles. 8 sub 7 (barely)
Wednesday: 10 miles. 7:24 pace
Thursday: 6 miles 7:35 pace. Followed by 30 minute swim. It was this day I decided to run a 5k on saturday. I kinda figured I could sleep walk in a mid 19.
Saturday 10 miles including a LONG 5k. Okay, conditions were deplorable, I woke at 4am to drive 90 minutes. Hardly had a warm up and I was gagging on my TWO 5 hr energy's for the first mile. But I just wanted a 19:30. I haven't done a 5k in over a year. It looked on target. Oh well.I was 3rd female but still...
Sunday: 15 on deck.
That will give me 65 miles for the week. I'm happy. Next week may be similar because I really don't have a race planned other than a Ultra Relay in September. And I'm fine with that right now. Here are some race pics:
