I felt really good about this week. I think only running 4 days a week (and cross training 2 days a week) is really helping keep my legs from feeling totally dead.
Monday – REST
Tuesday – was supposed to be 11 miles, but it turned into 12 when I discovered the path I usually take was closed for repaving. Thanks to the map on my phone I found my way home on the streets. I felt so good at the end that I ran the last 3 miles in 7:34, 7:34, and 7:29!
Wednesday – 45 minute spin…on the trainer, watching Jon Stewart.
Thursday – 8 miles with 4 at Lactate Threshold pace. Ran one mile to the gym and hopped on the treadmill, one mile warm-up, 4 miles at 7:08 min/mile, one mile cool down on the treadmill, then one mile home.
Saturday – 6 miles easy (9:00/mile) with the whole family. Mike and I eached pushed the stroller 3 miles.
Sunday – 15.1 miles (8:49 pace) A nice, relaxed long run with my dad around Alameda
Total: 41 miles
