Running with me

(stolen from E-Speed)

Goals for the week!

Total Mileage 50 - 55.

Monday: Easy.
Tuesday: "Speed" 1.5 mile @ 6:50 with 90 sec recovery, 1 mile @ 6:45
with 2 min recovery, 1.5 miles @ 6:50.
Wednesday and Friday: Easy miles @ 7:50 or slower, 6 x 30 sec strides on Friday.
Thursday: "Tempo" 8 miles @ 7:10
10 miles @ 8:00
14 miles @ 8:20

How it is playing out

Monday - no run (how is Easy is that!)
Tuesday time trial 3k in 10:54 = Marathon Equivalent 3:05 according to McMillan
Wednesday 10k easy
Thursday slept in
Friday early brekky meeting so run looks doubtful
Saturday swim with K, better squeeze in a 10k
Sunday 29k with 19k at marathon pace

Total will be 59k ... eesh!

Love this song ... interesting take on it.

Something more important than running

The wheels came off the Boston campaign, some things are just more important. Not to worry, I'm still getting on the long runs and the lighter week has allowed me to rest some niggles that were building up.

Comments from Katy:

"Behind my back, my besties in 9th grade arranged with my husband to re-inact the time they hired a stripper when I turned 15. FIFTEEN!! I accidentally pressed stop on the first recording. The second go, was worse/better. I think I don't have to explain that."
