Early breakfast with Finn
With the race coming up tomorrow I figured I'd wrap up the week with a post. Here's how it went down:
Mo: 10.5 easy
Tu: 13 w/3x2 mile at 5:42 pace, 1 mi. recoveries (6:35-6:56)
We: 12 miles easy
Th: 10 miles w/7 at 162HR (5:50-6:03 pace)
Fr: 19.6 miles
Sa: 7 miles easy
Su: 8 miles easy
Total: 80 miles in 7 sessions
I really approached this week with some caution after overdoing things last week. My easy days were usually 7:15-7:20 pace, which is more relaxed than my usual 6:40-7:00 pace. I also cut a few miles off of both today's and yesterday's runs to recover from the Thursday-Friday one-two punch and to hopefully get myself right for racing tomorrow. We'll see how well this strategy pays off. Greg Wenneborg, who has won this race eight of the ten times he's run it will be on the line, which guarantees some fairly quick early miles for any brave enough to go with him. Still, anything can happen. I look forward to seeing my pal Phil out there.
Training: 8 miles, 58 minutes, 7:15 pace. Legs feel good.
Total miles for the week: 80
