80 miles for the week!
Monday– 10 miles on the treadmill at an 8 min/mile pace.
Tuesday– Whoa. Okay so Callum woke me up at 5am this morning so I grabbed him and gave him a bottle and a snuggle, but when I couldn’t go back to sleep I got up, had some coffee and got dressed for a run. I ran out 5 miles, and then back. I thought that was it for the day but I just felt like the running gods had more to tell me, so when I put Callum down for his nap, I ran out 6 more miles at 7:30 min/mile pace. I needed that.
Wednesday– 10 miles with Andrew.
Thursday– I wanted to run hard, so I did the workout I did a few weeks ago: 2×3 miles at 6:40 min/mile pace with 1 mile recovery. I ended up doing my 2 cool down miles at 7 min/mile clip because I had to get the kids from school. My face was purple.
Friday– Five miles at 6am (what’s with the early wake-ups this week?) and then five miles while Callum slept. I wanted to run more but decided to just take it easy. I averaged 8:30 min/miles for all 10 miles.
Saturday– 5 in the morning, 5 later on with Andrew.
Sunday– 14 miles with the middle 10 at goal marathon race pace (6:50) but I ended up running them a little faster:
I want to try using the half marathon training plan soon instead of the full marathon plan, because my next race will be the Run For Water half at the end of May. So instead of capping out at 10 miles at goal race pace (6:50 for a sub-3 hour full) I will be hitting 7 miles at goal half marathon (1:25) race pace (6:30). Ouch. The race is in a month, so I should probably start hitting those paces. Sigh…
Have the running gods told you anything memorable lately?
Do you have any other type of license besides a regular car license?
