Monday: 5.5 miles (no watch)
Tuesday: 8 miles (6:39); 6.8 miles (7:06)
Wednesday: 10.2 miles with 16x1:00 on/off. Since this is my first faster running since the marathon (other than that 5k I did in 16:30ish), my plan was to be patient and increase the pace after every four intervals and hitting 4:50, 4:45, 4:40, 4:35 and I ended up averaging: 4:45, 4:40, 4:37, 4:31. With a dew point in the 60s, the air was really thick but I felt really smooth on this one. Good session and averaged 5:46 pace for the 32:00; 6.1 miles (7:03)
Thursday: Not sure if I ran?
Friday: 8 miles (6:40); 5.4 miles (7:05)
Saturday: 6.7 miles with 5k race in 15:19. It was actually about 15:30 something but I instinctively stopped my Garmin when I had to stop at a water table and ask which way the route turned. They had to bust out the map for that one. While I had to stay conscious to hang under 5:00 pace, it felt pretty smooth and relaxed; 2 miles. Paced a third grader on my Super Squad team to a 5:59 mile and then a few minutes later, an 8th grader that I coach to a 4:53.
Sunday: Not sure if I ran? Parents were in town, so maybe I didn't.
Week Total: ??? Lower volume but was happy with how the two workouts went.
Monday: No running. It was my daughter's fifth birthday, so I took the day off.
Tuesday: 4.2 miles (10:09). Ran with a higher schooler I help out with.
Wednesday: 5.7 miles (7:19); 7.4 miles (7:58).
Thursday: No running. Felt like crap on my second run yesterday and had a 102 fever at night. I started getting a nasty chest cough on Wednesday, then my throat started hurting last night. I went to the doctor in the morning and got diagnosed with strep throat...first time in over seven years.
Friday: 3.4 miles (7:29). Felt like crap, with wobbly legs.
Saturday: 3.1 miles. Donut mile in 8:17....much tougher than expected and finished fourth. I'll write a recap on this later.
Sunday: 10.7 miles (6:37). Sort of long run but not really. Legs still not feeling it.
Week Total: 34.5 miles. Ouch, low week. I scratched from the half in Duluth and will start a long buildup for Indy Monumental in the fall. Oh well.
