Monday: 8.5 miles (6:36); 6.3 miles (7:03)
Tuesday: 8 miles (6:36); 7.1 miles with 6xhill blasts (7:05)
Wednesday: 5 miles (6:51); 13.9 miles with 20x400m with 1:00 rest in 65.60 average. Eased into the effort and hung around 64-65 the second half. Recovered well in-between the intervals and the pace felt nice and smooth. Rough headwind on the backstretch. Not a bad first speedworkout back.
Thursday: 8 miles (7:03); 6.6 miles (7:19)
Friday: 10.2 miles (6:18)
Saturday: 13.2 miles with 10x3:00 on/1:00 off at 5:15 average and a little over 4:50 pace on the fast portions. Legs felt like booty today. It felt like I was trying to put my foot down on the gas but my tires were flat. My upper hamstrings/inside of quads/hips were still pretty tired from the track workout and wouldn't fire. When I'm in shape, I can really attack this workout and put a hurting on myself, but today, I just felt flat. Not a very good workout but it's still early; 2.9 miles (7:35)
Sunday: No running. Mary, Kate and I all woke up with the puke bug. Highlight of the day was somehow managing to pass out while getting ready to toss my cookies at the toilet and waking up with a bruised head and a head size dent in the metal trash can.
Week Total=89.7 miles. Another week of around 90 miles, when I was planning on making this 110-115. I'll get my mileage back up one of these days. I feel pretty out-of-shape and hopefully will get my act together so I don't get completely smoked at Gate River.
