20 miles, 2h14m, 6:42 pace
Sleep: 6h, 6/10 weird insomnia from watching Olympic marathon
Weather: 82 degrees, 64 dew-point
Tough but good run this morning, starting down low in town on the Rillito River path, then climbing several miles on trails and roads, then falling back down again. I'd say less than half the run was flat, but that's still more flat than I'm used to when I run from my neighborhood (drove to this one).
We started with a nice group of 7, but my friends Jason and Catlow started pounding us into submission soon after the first five comfortable miles. I spent my time alternating between trying to catch up to their heels and trying to just run as comfortably fast as I could while not bonking. Once we finally made it down from the hills we were left with a few miles to go on the path again, and at about 18 miles I started to feel a bit drained while running with Lucas, and I was a bit relieved to finally shut it down at 20. This ends a good week, which makes for two solid weeks in a row. Here's how it went down:
Mo: 8 tired
Tu: 10 (big hills)
We: 12, 6
Th: 16, 5
Fr: 12, 5
Sa: 11 up-tempo
Total: 105 in 8 sessions
Enjoy the weekend and thanks for reading.
