Good God, I'm behind on my blogging. <Insert humorous/pithy/fascinating excuse as to why I'm such a crappy blogger here.> My training suffered, too. I had two incredibly busy work weeks that really messed with my energy level/drive to run after getting home from work. I did what I could.
Week 11: April 23-29
Easy Run As Follows:
Warm up brisk walking 5-10 min
Easy run of 3 miles at 11:15 min
Cool down with brisk walk of 5-10 min

Interval Run As Follows:
Warm up with 1 mile at 11:30 pace
Mile repeats! WOOT! 3 x 1 mile at 9:10-9:20 min pace. Recover ½ mile at 11:45 min pace.
Cool down with brisk walk 5-10 min
Workout note: Nothing
workout note: zip

Long Run as Follows:
WU for 1 mile at 12:30 pace
Run 13.1 miles – race pace – 10:20 or better. Cool down (HA!) with an additional 5 miles at recovery pace of 11:45-12:30. Get those miles in!!!
Cool down with brisk walk for 5-10 minutes
workout note: I did my race, got a course PR, (read about it HERE) in the rain, people, in the pouring rain, AND I did my additional 5 miles on the treadmill. I am a badass honeybadger.
workout note: walking 3.45 miles
So yeah, not my most stellar week, but what the hell. The following week is worse (as I knew it would be due to my work schedule.)
And it's a BIG butt.... (Oh wait, we're not talking about MY butt here, right? "But" = a coordinating conjunction.... I digress.....)
Spoiler alert!!! I have a KICK ASS weekend of racing coming up!! I can hardly wait for my next post!!
