|August-October 2011 Sfx right before my marathon.|
|followed immediately by daily 90 minute swim rituals|
My first 10mm paced 1-milers on the soccer fields.
my endless sources of cross training....
there were rough times...
and happy times!! Post 22 miles today...
In the end I am very happy I am:
*enjoying my training
*kinda doing well pace wise
I am not going into my race thinking it's my personal olympics. I am actually very chill and just want to have fun and do my best. The 70+ miles a week are my meat and potatoes. This race is really just one run, one day. (I kinda hope I have a TAD more fire on race day but eh...)
For formalities sake:
Monday 7 miles @ 7:28 pace
Tuesday: 8 miles @ 7:23 pace
Wednesday: 14.22 mile tempo. Very happy with this one.
Thursday: 6 miles at 7:12 pace
Friday: 8 @7:15 pace. negative
Saturday: 7 @ 7:30 pace
Sunday: 22 @ 7:22 pace WITH relative monster elevation
TOTAL: 72 miles
My 22 did not have any goal pace. I ran easy and put in almost 1000ft of elevation to keep my wheels from coming off. I tried hard to keep the later miles slow so you can see some herky jerky splits. In the end endorphins won. It was a great training run. Unfortunately, my last long long run before my marathon.
PS. I'm back on speed bag and a VIDEO will follow soon. haha!
Happy Running Peeps and thanks for reading.
