This Week in Running: 11.8 to 11.14.10

Monday 11.8
AM: core
PM: 12 in 92:42
Dark and rainy.  Ben and I did loops in the park.  Good thing he had a headlamp.  Easy run.
Tuesday 11.9
AM: core
PM: 12.25 in 81:43
Good rhythm run.  Pace wasn't super but it felt good.
Wednesday 11.10
AM: core
PM: 7.25 in 53:51
Easy day.
Thursday 11.11
AM: 11.75 in 92:14
2 x 2 mile, 1200, 800 all w/ about .25 mile recovery
It was cold and windy this morning.  I really think the wind killed any chance of fast splits.  I averaged 5:48 and 5:45 for the 2 milers, 4:10 for the 1200 and 2:39 for the 800.  A good hard workout with slowish splits.  This is the last real hard interval day before the marathon, which is now only ten days away.
Friday 11.12
AM: legcore
PM: lifting
2/3 of normal routine.  Tapering down.
Saturday 11.13
AM: 15.75 in 1:45.07
Easy start and had to go a little slower than I wanted in the trails due to all the leaves, but the backhalf was good.  I was running marathon pace and it was coming real easily.  
Sunday 11.14
AM: 7 in 52:53
Easy run.


For the Week
66 miles in 6 runs
4 core workouts
1 lifting sequence
Analysis: Not concerned w/ # of miles at this point.  This week I wanted to 1) get in quality on the days that were supposed to be quality 2) allow the body to feel ready.  Now is the time to take care of the little things: stretch right, eat right, nurse those little aches and pains, get in the proper mindset to run a fast, hard marathon.

I want to go as far under 2:40 as possible. Prove to myself that the first time wasn't an accident. I would love to run 5:59 pace...Next time you do the ridge run or one like it, let me know; I want in.
