I definitely hit a low point in the middle of the week, but my runs Thursday and Saturday totally made up for it.
M- Strength and yoga. Starting to feel a little "off" but pushed through my workout.
T- 8mi with 1mi-2mi-1mi at 10k pace. Didn't hit 10k pace because it was super hot and humid but I put it all out there even though I wasn't feeling awesome. Not sure if I should be proud of that because I spent the rest of the day feeling like
Don't you wish napping was still that easy?
W- I took off. It was really really weird to take a shower without being sweaty. Do you ever feel like you have to earn a shower? I do.
R- Really awesome run where my body just naturally hit marathon goal pace for a bunch of miles. Yoga to relax after the not-so-greatest day at work.
S- 16 mi in 2:27. This is the run I've been waiting for all summer long. 9:12 min/mile average pace. Fiiiiiinally a run that reassures me that doing 26.2 at 8:45 min/mile is not crazy out of the question. The weather for this run was fabulous. As long as I can get an order of 50 degrees on Oct 3, I think I'm in business.
U- 6.5 easy and yoga.
This is my last "big" week of running. I have my last 20 miler this Saturday, and- knock on wood- am feeling great. I just have to get through the next 26.5 days without doing anything stupid.
