Monday: I got another pair of shoes during taper. The purple mile eaters have over 400 miles on them so I needed to start breaking in another pair. I found the same shoe on-line in another color (for a great price). Time to start racking up the miles!
Planned: Rest Actual: Rest
Blue Steel.Tuesday: Official results for the Snakebite 50k were posted and because of the high drop rate from the 50 miler, I ended up 12th lady. Now I have a little motivation for next year's race!
Planned: 5 miles Actual: 5 miles (8:55/miles pace)
Wednesday: Started to feel back in the groove on this run. Legs felt strong and I felt like I was hitting my stride.
Planned: 10 miles Actual: 6.2 miles (8:51/mile pace)
Thursday: Returned to Lullwater for the first time since the 50k.This run felt good. I started slow and later found myself pushing the pace and feeling comfortable doing so.
Planned: 4 miles Actual: 5.4 miles (8:31/mile pace)
There is a large Great Blue Heron that lives in the park. He was out having a snack, so I took his picture. I swear he is in there. Keep looking. Might need a better camera phone.Friday: After looking at my calendar, I realize that I have 24 Hours of Booty cycling ride in only a few weeks. Probably a good time to start training. The ride isn't about speed, but rather seeing how many miles you can ride in 24 hours. I should hopefully get in at least 10.
Planned: Rest Actual: 35 min biking (9.35 miles)
Saturday: It was one of those days when I just wasn't feeling it. My stomach wasn't feeling well when I got up so I didn't eat at all before my run. I met up the group I've been joining periodically for the past few months for their weekly long run (they are training for the Savannah Rock n' Roll Half). I had originally planned on tacking on 5 miles to their 10 mile run, but I just didn't have any energy by the end of 10. I'm sure I could have got through that last 5, but I decided to call it. I did have some light soreness/achiness later in the day probably due to poor fueling during the run.
Planned: 16 miles Actual: 10 miles (10:17/mile pace)
Sunday: I was tired and my legs needed a day.
Planned: 5 miles Actual:Rest
How was your week?
