Just when I feel like things are going oh so well, all I needed to do was lengthen my run out a little. The run itself was decent - six miles on the Back Bay. The plan was to go eight miles, but I got out in the late afternoon, and had to get home in time to grill dinner for the family, so I cut a couple miles. Total damage for last week: 23 miles. At least it's better than the two prior weeks!
This week will have a new twist thrown in - running after dark! Guess it's time for my annual running after dark blog.
On the plan this week:
Monday: 5 miles GA
Tuesday: Intervals. Somewhere around 6 miles
Wednesday: 5 miles GA
Thursday: 3 X 1600 at 10K pace w/ 400 active rest. 2 mile warm up and 1 mile warm down for a total of 6.75 miles. If I can't get on the track, I'll turn this to a 5 or 6 mile GA run.
Saturday: 3 mile GA
Sunday: Shelter Island 5K. With warm up and warm down should be around 5 miles.
Total: Somewhere around 30 miles.
On another note, I wanted to send out a HUGE congratulations to lindsay who shattered her Marahon PR by six minutes this weekend at the New York Marathon. Way to go lindsay!
