Monday: 6+ miles easy
Tuesday: Speed work. I only got in a half-mile warm up, which made the reps a little harder: 1200's in about 4:47, which could have been faster. Two and a half miles to cool down. It was dreadfully hot. I brought two towels and a trash bag in an attempt to keep my car clean.
Thursday: Tempo. Slightly better: Water stop at mile four, and a quick shoelace break later, but mostly consistent: 7:21, 7:10, 7:10, 7:10, 7:15, 7:08, 7:14
Friday: 10 miles easy, including a really bad fall at mile 8.5. I also worked in 14 hill repeats: I should have done more, but the train was coming, and I didn't want to get stranded on the river side of the park.
Saturday: 8+ mile long run...although this was not my longest run at all this week! Nice weather in the 80's - astonishing.
Sunday: 6 miles easy on dirt track.
Total: 49 miles. I also did strength four days a week and core three days a week, plus Myrtles every day. I am definitely questioning my goal given how hard my tempo runs have seemed. Am I overdoing it? Or is it just hot?
Otherwise, nothing feels injured except my ripped up knees and arm, so that's positive.
