Monday: 12 miles (5:58) with 10 miles medium (5:40). Rolling course and humid but felt good; .4 miles. Rained out
Tuesday: No running. Stayed out late and had to wake up early.
Wednesday: 14 miles. Ran a loop around the forest with Reed, did another lap fast, then a mile cooldown. I had a lot of trouble running quickly in the forest because of all the rhythm changes. Maybe I'll try a trail marathon or longer, but I could never run a short trail race; 3.4 miles (7:41)
Thursday: 9 miles (6:53); 5.4 miles (7:17)
Friday: 6.7 miles (6:54); 5.4 miles with strides (7:08)
Saturday: 1.5 miles (7:37); 7.8 miles with 5k race in 14:13. Not happy with the race at all because I was expecting to break 14. First lap was a 68, I freaked out and dropped a 65 next lap and came through the mile in 4:26. I wasn't comfortable at all and lost the pack after 2k. I don't remember any splits after the 1600m and completely lost focus.
Sunday: 10.6 miles (6:51); 3.4 miles (7:32)
Week Total= 79.5 miles. Was hoping for 95ish miles but the day off wrecked that. The race also had me bummed for a couple of days. It was a new personal best but I'm not happy with my mindset during the race. The trip to South Carolina threw my training off a bit, so next week I'll get a little more volume to make up for it. Two weeks until my last race and then I can chill for a bit.
