I drove into the parking lot at St. Philips plaza at 7:02am, and for perhaps the first time ever the group I was meeting with decided to start the run on time. I could see five runners scampering away quickly while I put the car into park, and a minute or so later I was panting and making my way on to the tail of the group. 16 miles of hills, trails and good conversation followed, and it ended up being a nice way to end this week's running. Here's how it went down:
Mo: 5 easy
Th: 10 (5K race)
Fr: 10 (in Phoenix for Thanksgiving)
Sa: 22 w/last 2 at marathon pace
Total: 106 in 8 sessions
I was bummed to not get at least another double in, but with the two short days of mileage for the race and the day after I guess I shouldn't complain. Hope everyone else had a good week.
Training: 16 miles, approximately 1:56:00, 7:15 pace
