I tried to get in some quality work this week, even if it didn't include anything terribly long. After the weekend's 19.3 miles of trail running, I definitely needed Monday as a rest day.
Tuesday and Wednesday were speedwork with 3 miles each day. Tuesday I ran a tempo pace maintaining 6.2 miles or 9:40, which felt comfortable. Wednesday was another 3 miles alternating between 2 minutes at 6.0 then one minute at 6.5 for the first two miles, then switching to two minutes at 6.5 and one minute at 6.0 for the final mile. I actually enjoyed that routine because it made my lunch workout go by faster. Both runs were in the 29 minute range, which I liked seeing.
Friday I had a really nice 6 mile run through the Metroparks after work. In spite of the 82 degree temps, I still pulled out a 1:02:32!
I have a long run on the calendar for Sunday - not sure what distance, but it will be at least 15 miles...but we'll see since thunderstorms are called for ALL weekend.
