I've pretty much gone off my training plan at this point. I switched things around, missed runs, and threw in a 5k race for good measure. I guess we'll see next week if that was a good idea or not!
Monday - Cross Training
Tuesday - 4 miles
I have no notes about this run. I'm so not in a focused blogging mindset lately. I did have a decent last mile though, 8:26!
4.01 miles @ 9:38 pace
Wednesday - 6 miles
Nothing ended up happening running-wise on Wednesday because it was Tom's birthday and I was busy doing things like bake a key lime pie.
Thursday - 4 miles
This run felt great while it was happening, but was a little disappointed by my pace when I got home. Last mile was an 8:20 though, which I was happy with.
4.01 miles @ 9:21 pace
Friday - Rest Day
Saturday - 4 miles
I decided last week to sign up for a 5k that was being held pretty close to the house (20 minutes away, everything is 20 minutes away). It didn't start until 10:30 which felt really weird - I'm used to super early starts for races!
The race was small (about 60 finishers) and pretty flat. It was a cool, misty morning and I was feeling pretty good. It is weird to run such a short race, and I had strange splits (my second mile was my slowest), but it was a fun race.
I ended up getting first in my age group, which never happens, and getting a new 5k PR! 24:45!
This is the first trophy I have ever gotten for running. I have to say, I'm a fan!
Now I have to figure out where to put it...
3.1 miles @ 7:59 pace
Sunday - 8 miles
I was tired from the race so I took it easy and just got it done. Not my best run, but my last "long" run before Steamtown next weekend.
8.02 miles @ 10:41 pace
Weekly Mileage - 19.14
I just have a couple of short runs on the plan this week, and then on Sunday it's time to run and run and run.
We'll see how it goes.
