Stats: 62 miles (planned for 58, but I think I'll get Petru to add my miles next time, ha!)
Runs: 1 MP (5), 1 tempo (3@ HMP), 1 interval (8X2min @ 10Kpace), 1 long (16), 2 easy.
My foot has been bugging me. Some tendon in the arch needs to behave.
I gained 3 lbs since before the taper for the HIM.
I suck at running long. I struggled through 16 miles this past week.
The heat/humidity and I need to find a way to get along, meaning I need to start running super early in the morning.
I am loving just running (OK, I do bike and swim a bit, but no more 3-4 hour bike rides and I do not miss them).
Running fast and short (relatively) is easier for me then running long.
I need longer and longer warm-ups.
I plan to go back to Fresh Pond Races in August. Right now, it would be rather sad...
I have no idea how I ran a 6:46 average pace for 13.1 miles. Or a 6:16 average pace for 3.1 miles. Running 2X15 min @ HM pace was not easy for me today in 94 degrees. Blah!
Seriously though, I am super excited to train for this marathon. This is early in the game and the hardest part of training in some sense. So thankful and happy to be running!
