January 13th-19th

Monday: 10.6 miles (6:42)

Tuesday: 3 miles (6:55); 12.4 miles with 6 mile progression. Goal was to run 10:40, 10:10 and 9:40 for the two mile sections and I ran: 10:36, 10:04, 9:31.  Pace felt nice and smooth.  A couple of weeks ago, I really struggled running these paces but today it felt natural, rather than forced (granted it was an extra mile on each section).  Starting to peak rather nicely.

Wednesday: 3 miles (6:53); 5 miles (6:44)

Thursday: 8 miles (6:39); 3.5 miles (6:59)

Friday: 8 miles (6:38); 3.6 miles (6:43)

Saturday: 4.9 miles (7:02)

Sunday: 27.6 miles with Houston Marathon in 2:17:17. Toed the line with A level fitness but ran a D level race.  I chose brawn over brains.

Week Total: 89.6 miles. Thought this was going to be my big breakout race but had a rough showing.  I feel like I could have run 5:10s through 20 and then dropped the hammer some.  Instead, I went out way too hard, burned up my carb stores and died.
