Not There

For some reason this week just didn't come together for me. I was hoping to get 100 miles in, but I found myself tired and pretty unmotivated all week and ended up just over 80. Here's how the week went down:

Mo: 8
Tu: 11 w/3x2 miles around 5:52 pace w/6:40 mile recoveries
We: 10
We: 6
Th: 11
Fr: 10 w/8x300 jog/100 sprint & 1x800 downhill
Sa: 8
Su: 17
Total: 81

The coach specified a long run of two hours or more, a day of sprints and/or downhill 800's, and the cruise intervals, and I'm happy I was able to get those days in. However, all week I found myself feeling fatigued once I hit around 8 miles or so. With work easing off and life getting back to normal I'm hoping next week will be better. Between how this week turned out and straining my ankle last week, it hasn't been much of a month for me.

Training: 2/17, 17.25 miles, 2h, 7:00 pace. Tired for second half
2/16, 8 miles, 59m, 7:18 pace. A bit of blah
