Sunday- funny story!!!
I met someone who also enjoys running... so when I told him I wanted to run on Sunday he said he would run with me and I agreed. Well, I got home from my parents a little early and was feeling sluggish and heavy from the weekend. I wasn't meeting up with him until later so I was getting a little antsy to run and from the past couple of runs with him I knew it wasn't going to be too far (maybe 3-5 miles) and not too fast (9:00ish pace) well... the way I was feeling was 5 miles at 8:00ish pace.... so I decided I would run that and then meet him and go easy and be relaxed rather than push the pace ... well - sometimes things don't go exactly as planned!
I ran my 5 at 8:00 pace... then I met up and ran with him not even 2 hours later... my first question was so how far do you want to go... and he said 8 MILES!!! whaaaat?!? but I said ok... because I didn't want him to know I had already put in 5 miles!!
Well - the pace... he was pumping out 8:00!!
So in a nutshell... I ended up running 6 with him at an 8:08 pace...
Total for Sunday 11 miles 8:04 pace
(PS I ran 10 miles the day before at 8:00 pace!)
Monday - OFF
Tuesday - 8 miles
Wednesday - TRACK!!! 1 miles warm up 3x 400 1600 3x400 800 = 4 miles
Thursday - OFF
Friday 12 Miles 8:23 pace
Saturday 8 more miles! I just felt like doing more. I went to bed at 8:45 the night before so when 5 am came around I was fully energized and decided to hit the pavement. The garmin died half way through, but I was mainting 8:15-8:20 before it died... Once I got home I iced my legs then hit the road for Miami...
I am feeling great and feeling like I may run something easy early tomorrow morning before I hit the road for Miami!!!
