Friday: I didn't run, but I wouldn't say I rested. I met up with the DONNA crew for the Galloway VIP party (not sure how we got on the list for this one). I was lucky enough to meet both Bill Rogers and Bart Yasso, who is amused by southern accents. Fun fact: Bill Rogers and Jeff Galloway were on the same running team in college at a tiny school in New England. Talk about a powerhouse. Second Fun fact: My Brother went to the same college, but he was a hockey player.
Planned: Rest Actual: Rest
Boston Billy Rogers, Jeff Galloway, and Bart Yasso.Saturday: Ever have one of those days where you sleep horribly and wake up sore and achy? I did. My legs were so sore when I woke up, I couldn't imagine forcing them into a 20 miler. When I set up my training plan for this cycle, I put in three 20 milers knowing well that one of them probably wouldn't happen and this was the one. After quickly ramping up the miles after Chickamauga I knew that this one could get the ax.
Planned: 20 miles Actual: Lots of rolling.
Sunday: Spent the morning cheering along the runners at the inaugural Galloway 13.1. 26.2 with DONNA sponsored a
Piedmont Park is in the heart of Atlanta.Planned: 4 miles Actual: 15.25 miles (8:40/mile pace)
All in all, another good week. I am happy that I listened to my body and it worked out for a good long run, but I still need to work on pacing. I had a blast volunteering with all the wonderful ladies at the Galloway race and encourage you all to volunteer once in awhile. Bring friends, it's much more fun that way!
How was your week? Do like volunteering at races?
