I'm getting bored writing my weekly recaps and I'm sure you're tired of reading them, too. There isn't a lot to say about my training right now other than it is consistent. I'm doing a track workout or tempo run every week, one of my runs is hilly, I do core work, I'm strength training and rolling. I'm doing everything I'm supposed to be doing and as a result, thing are going a-ok.
Well, I shouldn't type so fast. I had a 19 mile long run that sucked so bad last Saturday that I'm calling a redo and doing it this week. I don't even want to talk about how horrible the run was, so I won't.
Week of Feb 24 - March 2
Sunday: Rest. Travel day back to Seattle from Arizona.
Monday: 17 mile long run @ 8:48 pace.
Tuesday: Easy 4 miles and some core + upper body strength.
Wednesday: Track: 16x400. First 8 in 1:50 and second 8 in 1:45.
Thursday: Swam 2,000 yards and core + weights
Friday: Ran 9 miles at lunch at a 8:44 pace. \
Saturday: 11.2 miles. Was supposed to run 19.
This week I have the Lake Samammish Half marathon! It will be part of my 19 mile redo. Looking forward to pushing it on a long run and see if my fitness is the same as last September when I PR'd.
