Happy with this week: Did some easy runs, some speed work, and a race which gave me a little confidence back as a runner.
Total miles: 35.8
Average pace: 8:45
Mon: 6 miles WB trail with the Monday morning group
Tues: 6.1 miles WBHS track speed work. Quarters.
Wed: 4.1 at Pontiac- five finger run, 6.1 WB group run with K.
Fri: 3.5 on WB trail. Supposed to be easy.
Sat: Crim- 1:20:33. 16:35 PR. 8:04 pace.
A week to be happy about, I think. :)
Next week, 37-42 miles! Many of them with come from the Labor Day 30K, I think. Not one I'm going to race- it's almost double the length of my longest run since May. Rolling the dice, but I've gone without running this race for so long that I really *don't* want to miss it again.
That being said, I also really don't want to get injured. Maybe I'll go heart rate mediated...
Anyway, tentative plan-
Mon- 5-6 group run
Tues- 5-6 speed work
Wed- 5-6 group run
Fri- 3-6 shake out run
Sat- 18.6 Labor Day 30K
Total Planned miles are 37-42. I hope it goes well!
