Here is how week 7 went down.
Monday: Easy 4
Tuesday: 8 x 600s, 7 miles total
I had never done 600s before, it’s a weird distance, about .37 miles. I did this on the treadmill, it was raining, maybe? I don’t remember now. I record my splits using the timer on my phone and for most of them I ran the same pace.
600s goal = 2:55
Actual: 2:54, 2:52, 2:52, 2:52, 2:52, 2:52, 2:51, 2:50
Thursday: 7 mile Tempo (5 @ tempo, 1 mi. w/u, 1 mi. c/d)
This was a great run! For some reason, I felt incredible from the very first tempo mile. It usually doesn’t come that easy for me, it usually takes me a couple miles to settle into a pace and feel good about it. My body felt so ready to run this pace!
Tempo goal pace = 8:58
Actual splits: 8:58, 8:53, 8:59, 8:52, 8:56
I spent the rest of the night packing for Vermont. I think our cats knew we were leaving.
Friday: 3 miles with Lauren in Vermont!
Faster than what it was supposed to be, but it felt good to be out of the car and running in clean air!
Saturday: 17.8 miles total at the 100 on 100 relay race (Recap coming soon, I promise!)
Total: 38.8 miles
Em always sends me the best update pictures when she is cat-sitting for us! Not so patiently waiting for food.
