Saturday- 11 mi, 9:25 average pace
Oh, rest day. Thank you for helping me recover and energize for my speed work tomorrow. Today I have been catching up on homework, watching a few shows, and making omelettes. Later Kevin and I are going to a few open houses and exploring some new areas.
I am proud of my long run from yesterday. I was doubting myself during the first few miles because of the wind and the icy/snowy roads. Half way through I found my groove and I was loving every minute of it. Plus the wind was at my back for the second half! I need to remember that my mind might think that 11 miles is nothing, but my body is just getting back to higher mileage. I am a little sore today, so rest is a good thing.
Both tempo and speed work days were really tough for me this week. I’m hoping the fast paces will start to get easier and make me a speedy bunny.
Summary of the week:
Monday– 5 x 1000 @ 7:50 + swim
Wednesday-6 mi tempo run
Thursday-Bike 45 minutes
Saturday– 11 mi LSD @ 9:25
Have a restful Sunday!
