Here we go!
M: still getting over cold (rest)
T: 6 mi, 10:29/mi average. 65F / 88%. Felt mostly better.
W: 5 mi total, 4 mi @ 9:13/mi ave (with friends), 1 mi cooldown at 11:20/mi. This was a weird one because I felt great during the faster portion until I suddenly didn’t! And my HR was in the 180s . . . gah. 66F / 79%.
R: 9.3 mi total — 6 mi ‘race pace’ run (wore AlphaFlys for this one!). Ave 9:05/mi, splits 9:00, 8:51, 9:03, 9:09, 9:10, 9:11. 73F 76% at beginning and 77F+ at end. 3.3 mi cooldown @ 11:04/mi, totally overheated + done
F: rest; did 30 min yoga (Power Yoga with Kristin McGee on Peloton)
S: 10 mi long run, 10:14/mi, felt nice and relaxed (HR ranged from 150s – 170s). Practiced eating skratch gummies while running. Took one quick water stop
S: 5.24 mi easy, 10:28/mi 71F / 67%
Total miles – 35.5
No strength this week. Sort of purposeful as I taper – don’t want sore legs . . . will pick it back up post race!
PS: date night was great. We seem to do them about monthly these days which works well!
