Monday: 5.9 miles (6:53); 5.6 miles (7:10)
Tuesday: 10.2 miles (6:24); 7 miles with 8xhill blasts (7:23)
Wednesday: 4 miles (6:48); 5.3 miles with a bombed workout. Plan was 3x4 mile loop at marathon pace, with steady 1k jog recovery in between, followed by 150mish steep sprints down a grass hill. Winds were super strong and went through the first mile in 5:30, followed by 1/3 of a mile at 5:40 pace before I bagged it. Super frustrating.
Thursday: 4.3 miles (6:53)
Friday: 5.7 miles (6:48); 9.4 miles (6:44)
Saturday: 8.8 miles with 5k in 15:15. Didn't know how I would feel. Course was mostly flat with tons of turns. Miles were 4:42, 4:56, 5:06. First mile was sort of tough and could tell I backed off as the race progressed. Wasn't hard as I thought, which is a good sign I guess; 5.4 miles (7:09)
Sunday: 22.5 miles (7:10ish). Wow, what a terrible long run. Met up with Max Paquette, Lauren Hagans and Dave Milner at Vaughns Gap. Ran 7:20ish pace or so for about 10 miles than Max and I went to add in more miles. The plan was to run 2:10, so we ran to Steeplechase, with plans of running the Judicata course and then heading back. As usual, I got lost several times and added an extra 30 minutes. Felt bad because Max has a marathon in two weeks, oops. But I felt like crap the second half. I would frequently get dropped on the hills and had to walk for a while shortly after 20. Got home, felt like crap and had a fever for the rest of the day.
Week Total= 96.1 miles. Terrible week. Hopefully I figure out this potential thyroid issue. I had some big plans for the spring and really don't want to have to end the season yet. I probably should have taken time off after Houston. Oh well. Hopefully this week I'll get in some moderate mileage with a steady run or two. I'll try to get some more blood testing as well.
