Halfway there! I’ve had some serious ups and downs in motivation, but I’ve been getting my runs done (except for one 12-miler that turned into 7). I shifted things around a little bit because I raced that half marathon two weeks ago, but now I’m right back on schedule and have my first 20 mile run this weekend.
Now that it’s getting dark so much earlier, and daycare closes at 5:30, I’m going to have to split more medium-long runs into double days. I’m not totally thrilled about it, but hopefully just getting those miles in will still be beneficial.
M – 2200 meter swim
T- 50 minute spin
W- 12 miles (8:05 min/mile) – Probably the last medium-long run I’ll be able to do while it’s still light
F- 8 with 4 @ Lactate Threshold (7:10 min/mile)
Sa- 5 easy
Su – 15 total (1 mile warm-up, half marathon in 1:38, 1 mile cool-down)
M – 2300 m swim
Tu – 6 miles
W- AM: 5 miles with 5 x 1000 @ 5K pace (avg. about 4:10); PM: 5 miles
Th- 7 miles in 1:02. This was supposed to be 12, but I was EXHAUSTED
Sa- 6 miles easy
Su- 16 miles (hard to get myself out the door, and hard to keep myself going, but I got it done)
