October 27th- November 2nd Training

Monday: 9.7 miles (6:44); 5.5 miles (7:02)

Tuesday: 7.9 miles (6:32); 5.3 miles (7:07)

Wednesday: 9.4 miles with 12x1:00 on/off. I felt fast and like I was moving quickly but I only averaged about 4:47 pace on the fast portion.  But I tried to keep it controlled, so I'm not that mad; 6.3 miles (7:15ish)

Thursday: 7 miles (7:00ish).  Had a massage after Running Club, so I couldn't get in a second run.

Friday: No running. Travelled to Indianapolis and had no time.

Saturday: 20.5 miles with 30k at 5:15ish pace. Paced the 2:18 group and with a 14 degree wind chill, with 15 mph winds, I was pretty nervous about it.  But I felt good running and went through 10k in 32:29, half in 69:03 and 30k in 1:38:17.  Unfortunately, no one got the qualifier.  I'll write a recap this week.

Sunday: 6.8 miles (7:16). Hip flexors are completely shot but other than that, everything feels great.

Week Total: 77.9 miles. Super low volume week but I had a great session on Saturday.  I really think I could chase my PR with a month of training and that's with no structured and consistent workouts since last December.  But Im not going to race a marathon until I'm ready to run really fast..hopefully that's in April.  This week, I'll run mostly base training type stuff and get in some decent volume, which I'll continue to increase for the next 4-6 weeks.
