Tuesday
 
planned – Total Body weights class

Wednesday

Thursday
 
planned – Total Body weights class
actual – rest

tired from 5 days (4 of which were intense) straight working out. 

 
Friday
 
planned – rest
actual – rest
 
Saturday
 
planned – 14 mile long run
actual – 13.1 run

even those training for 26.2 only did 13 this weekend, so we decide to run the route with them.  pushed it for an extra 0.1 to get an idea of time.  this run was only 2 minutes slower than my PR at Columbia.  hoping that means i can push it in knoxville for a brand new PR.

 
Sunday
 
 planned – rest
actual – rest
 
Monday
 
planned – cruise intervals 4 x 800
actual – 4 miles: warm up, intervals, cool down

should have been easy-ish (hence “cruise) but the wind made me fight to keep pace in a few spots.  over all though, i’m thrilled to hold a 8:30 pace fairly easily, even if it is just over a half mile.

This weekend we’re “only” doing a 10 miler.  After running between 12-14 for so long, it hardly feels like a long run, which was of course the point.  To make that distance seem like nothing.  It’ll feel weird running for less than 2 hours this weekend.

How’s your training coming along?
