June 11th-17th Training

Monday: 4.7 miles (7:14); 5.5 miles (6:54)

Tuesday: 8 miles fartlek (6:22).  Ran a couple miles easy and planned on 3-4x4:00 at sub 5:00 pace with 2:00 easy jog.  Ran them three of them just under 4:55 pace and felt good. I was debating doing four but since I've done a lot of 5ks lately, I decided easier would be better.

Wednesday: 6.8 miles (7:01); 3.4 miles (7:01)

Thursday: 6 miles with pick-ups (6:42).  Threw in a few steady and fast pick-ups.

Friday: 5 miles (7:23)

Saturday: 15.6 miles with half-marathon in 65:02. Went out insanely fast but felt good. Moved up throughout the race and got in a good pack. Struggled the last 5k and wasn't happy with my time but I'll take 15th place.

Splits: 4:41, 4:50, 4:49, 4:55, 5:02, 4:50, 5:01, 5:04, 4:59, 5:05, 5:07, 10:38 last 2.1.

Sunday: No Running

Week Total= 55 miles. With my final race of the season over, I'll take it super easy next week and then start a short base building cycle.  With my planned marathon in about four months, I can't afford to get out-of-shape like I typically like to do in the off-season.
