February 29th-March 6th Training

Monday: 5.4 miles (7:25); 8 miles (7:15)

Tuesday: 5.4 miles (7:47)

Wednesday: 8.9 miles with 4x800m with 800m jog. My plan was to do six, starting at 2:22-2:24 and working down.  I ended up running 2:24, 2:26, 2:23, 2:26. My legs just would not go.  I'll blame it on the wind and last night's deep massage; 6.9 miles (7:10)

Thursday: 8.7 miles (6:57); 3.6 miles (9:06) Running club practice

Friday: 5.4 miles (7:19); 4.1 miles with a mile of in/outs (7:10)

Saturday: 17.6 miles with half marathon in 69:50. Ran negative splits on this one and I need to do a longer recap this week (along with the trail half, 2.5 weeks ago).  Ran in the low 5:20s for a while, broke away with Joey Elsakr around five miles in and then pulled away from Joey shortly before nine miles.  Pretty tired at the end.

Sunday: 5.5 miles (7:06)

Week Total: 79.4 miles. Not a bad week, with planned lower volume.  I'm a little more out of shape than I thought but I think I'll be feeling much betterin 4-6 weeks.
