Monday - 11.5 in 79.39
Warm, upper 60s, temps got me in a groove. Embedded 25 min tempo run. Felt great.
Tuesday - 6
Wednesday - 10.25 in 79:58
4 x 800, 400
Felt fast today. Jogged to the track for my warm-up. Low and behold, a track meet was happening. Damn. Had to adjust on the fly. Did the workout on a flat, gravel road. Ran on time. 2.40 for the "800" and 1.20 for the "400." Ran in flats. This was exactly the turnover workout I needed. I worked hard and got the pistons firing.
Thursday - 10 in 74.53
Normal 10 mile loop at the farm. Not dead after y'day so that's good.
PT leg exercises and strengthening.
Saturday - 18 in 2.08.48
Good long run. Felt good throughout. Never fatigued that bad and certainly didn't hit the wall. Spent the afternoon/evening hanging w/ EJN et al at the Marathon Expo and Marathon Sports Party. Good times.
Sunday - 10.25
Easy run. Incorporated 4 strides on grass.
For the Week
Analysis: Good week. Feel like I'm getting in shape. Looking for another good one next week. The Wednesday/Saturday runs are signs that my training is headed in the right direction.
