Monday: 6.1 miles (7:10); 7.9 miles (6:57)
Tuesday: 8.7 miles (6:42); 6 miles (6:57)
Wednesday: 9.7 miles with 8x400m with 400m jog rest. The plan was up to 12x400m with 200m jog, but my hip flexors were feeling tired and I knew 200m jog would be too little, especially with the marathon this weekend. I felt like crap on the first few but loosened up by the end. I probably could have done 10-12 without an issue but I wanted to play it safe. Ended up running: 66.9, 67.8, 66.8, 66.4, 66.2, 66.4, 65.8, 65.8.; 6.1 miles (6:58)
Thursday: 6 miles (7:09); 4.6 miles (8:22)
Friday: 6.1 miles (7:05)
Saturday: 27 miles with marathon in 2:25:42. Really didn't feel smooth on this one at all. Legs felt flat at about halfway and while I felt much better the last 10k than I did last year, it was a much rustier day overall. Maybe I could have run 2:22 or so, flat out? I promise I'll have a full recap by the end of the week.
Sunday: 1.7 miles. Ran a few rounds with my kids at the Kids Rock Run. Quads were insanely tight.
Week Total: 89.9 miles. The #1 goal was to win the marathon this weekend and I'm glad I was able to do that. In a way, it was yet another lost week, 5k training wise and I'm sure I'll have dead legs for a few days next week. Oh well.
