Biggest week of 2018 so far! 24.5 miles. And it only goes up from here, with the exception of the much needed regeneration week coach has scheduled next week. I like the term “regeneration” instead of recovery. No long run this coming weekend, but I do need to adjust my schedule to 5 days of running instead of 4.
Monday, February 5 – Easy 4 – 38:14 (9:33)
The easier runs are getting faster.
Tuesday, February 6 – Rest
Wednesday, February 7 – 6×1000 – 59:28 (9:09)
Whew! It’s been a long time since I’ve done 1000s. Coach called for 10K pace, so I pushed 7.0 on the treadmill.
Thursday, February 8 – Rest
Friday, February 9 – Easy 5 – 48:03 (9:37)
It’s hard to wake up early enough to get 5 in before work. But I never regret it!
Saturday, February 10 – Long Run 9 – 1:22:54 (9:13)
The last mile needed to be under 9:00, but I’m an overachiever, so I managed to get the last 2 miles under 9:00 with an 8:44 and 8:38. WEE! This run felt fantastic…comfortably hard…my legs felt STRONG.
Sunday, February 11 – Rest
I should have done yoga, but I didn’t wake up sore or stiff.
I wrote out the next month of training into my journal. I’ve got some BIG HARD workouts ahead of me. Good thing I like to…
