Happy Sunday Eve! Let the Badassery build tonight and roll out in the morning! My long run has been on Saturday for a while now but there is still the magic of Sunday that lights a fire up under my feet.
So I'm gunning for pre Boston marathon. YOLO, I can do 2, screw it. I can't deal with this once a year marathon thing. I'm working on some mileage now. Turn over. Finding love with my marathon pace. The usual. That's what makes me happy!
Here is this week:
Monday: Gym, core, glutes, arms. No running.
Tuesday: 11 miles. Very windy. Hill repeats on mile 11. 7:25 pace avg
Wednesday: 21 miles total. 15 with 10 miles at 6:40 pace. A short 6 mile double also in the am. 2 at 6:40 pace. 20mph winds plus gusts. I got the MP I wanted. But I would have liked 6:30's. I won't mention the sheets of ice that had me body slamming into bridges. It was a stressful morning!
Thursday: 12 miles in Umstead. 800 feet. 7:37 pace. A grind given yesterday!
Friday: 5 easy 7:45 pace
Saturday: 21 at 7:30 pace. Last mile sub 7.
Sunday: Tomorrow will be about 13-14 with lots of hill repeats.
85 miles in 6 days
Here's some random photos from this week:
