After that lame 25 mile week, I was relieved to be above 50 again this week. My runs were all pretty decent, but by the end of the week I was definitely ready for taper to start.
I took no pictures all week, so here’s my dailymile graph.
Monday – rest
Tuesday – started out with 7 blah miles on the treadmill at ungodly hour. When I got to school, I got talked into racing the Turkey Trot (a one-mile race around campus that most of the staff members do along with the kids. Including one teacher who ran a 9:05 in HEELS). I ran 6:13. Not in heels.
Wednesday – Too much election excitement meant my morning track workout didn’t happen, so I ran 8 tempo miles after school (7:22 min/mile)
Thursday – 5 miles recovery (8:55 min/mile)
Friday – 7 easy treadmill miles bright and early (8:51 min/mile)
Saturday – 5 miles with Mike and Ellie. I pushed the stroller for the last half and MAN that kid is getting heavy. (8:48 min/mile)
Sunday – 20 miles. 8 miles on the treadmill before the sun came up followed immediately by 12 on the roads. I picked it up for the last 3 miles and ran them all under 8 min/mile. Overall pace was 8:36 min/mile.
Total: 53 miles
