Off the Map

Out of sorts and short on time this week. Here's what I've been up to:

3/20, 12 miles, 1h20m, 6:45 pace
3/19 pm., 6.2 miles in 42:46
3/19 am., 9-ish miles, w/3 mi. of consecutive 400's: 1:26, 1:29, 1:28, 1:26, 1:21, 1:22, 1:18, 1:18, 1:14, 1:21, 1:25, 1:32, tired during the 1:14 and after
3/18, 3.5 miles, 25m, 7:07 pace. Poop.
3/17, 12 miles, 1h23m, 6:59 pace, dragging a bit
Miles for the week: 105 in 11 sessions
3/16, 16 miles, 1h50m, 6:57 pace, tired by the end
3/15, 9 miles, 1h5m, 7:12 pace, w/12x300 jog, 100 sprint

Last week ended with 105 miles, which was on target with Mystery Coach's plan. Sunday did find me more tired than I wanted to be though, which I guess can be expected after bumping the miles a bit.

I ended up with maybe four hours of sleep Monday, so Tuesday was a disaster. I felt horrible from the moment I woke up, but I still struggled outside and started the run. I turned around at 3 miles and called it a day though.

Wednesday was a fun workout, with a 3 mile run of timed 400's. Goal on the left, actual on the right

1:35/1:26
1:33/1:29
1:30/1:28
1:27/1:26
1:25/1:21
1:22/1:22
1:20/1:18
1:17/1:18
1:15/1:14
1:17/1:20
1:20/1:25
1:35/1:32

I look forward to trying this one again, as I enjoyed speeding up throughout. Today was 12 miles, quicker than planned but I just felt good. I like feeling good.
