CIM: Week 10

Hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving!

Are you sick of reading these training recaps yet?

Week one of taper was a good one, complete with an unofficial PR!

I know it doesn’t really count because it was just a training run, but that’s my fastest 10K ever (by 30 seconds!)

Here’s how the week went down:

Monday – rest, as always

Tuesday – 6.3 miles at 8:24 min/mile.  Just a regular after-work run

Wednesday – Got up EARLY for a track workout.  The training plan called for 5 x 600, but I decided to do 4 x 800 + 4 x 400.  My first 800 was 3:17 and I was super bummed, but managed to do the next 3 in 3:08.  400s were 88, 89, 88, 87 (I think that’s the first time I’ve ever run that many under 90!) 5.2 miles total.

Thursday – rest

Friday – The unofficial 10K PR! I didn’t warm up at all, and I didn’t realize I was going that fast…I was just trying to push it a little bit.  My last 3 miles (one of which was downhill) were all under 7:00.  VERY pleasantly surprised when I checked my watch! 6.2 at 7:05 min/mile

Saturday – an easy 6.6 miles at 8:55 min/mile

Sunday – my last long run! 16 at 8:33 min/mile

Total: 40.3 miles
