Plugging away …

Yesterday was an 11 mile run that was your basic training run – went out and did it and felt fine. Managed 8:10 pace with a 144 HR. Nothing earth shattering, just a run during a recovery week.

I slept poorly last night and my five mile recovery run felt okay but not great. It also started snowing half way into the run with a stiff wind into my face. I managed 8:20 pace at 134 HR for the five miles. Tomorrow is a 14 miler followed by the usual rest day on Monday.

The coming week, though, is looking tougher. It will look like this – hopefully:

Tues – 10 miles with 5 a 15k to half marathon pace
Weds – 14 miles
Thurs – 5 miles
Fri – 11 miles
Sat – 8 miles with 10 x 100 strides
Sun – 21 miles

The Fri – Sat stretch are going to be the difficult part – no rest on Saturday so Sunday should be a more difficult long run.

1/19/07 – 11.1 miles/1:31:08/8:11 pace/144 HR
1/20/07 – 5.3 miles/44:47/8:20 pace/134 HR
