Monday 11/18 - RUN 3.12 miles in 32:19 (10:21 pace). We had a huge wind storm and didn't have school, so this was a weird time of day run to check out some of the damage. It's always a bit odd to see a truck on my running trail - the park service was there cutting up trees that had fallen on the trail.
Tuesday 11/19 - REST. Watched my daughter qualify for the Division 1 State Diving Championships at her Regional meet :)
Wednesday 11/20 - RUN 4 mile tempo in 38:53 (9:43 ave pace). This was a tough run.
Thursday 11/21 - LONG RUN 8 miles. This was supposed to happen on Saturday but I knew we'd be traveling for divegirl's state meet. I had to do this run after school and I was poorly fueled and not well hydrated. Basically, this run sucked balls and I even stopped my watch and sat down at mile 4, wondering who might be home to pick my sorry ass up. I got my shit together and finished but it wasn't pretty. 8 miles in 1:28:31 (11:03 pace).
Friday 11/22 - REST while I spectated my daughter's awesome diving. She finished 33rd in the state in Division 1 and I couldn't be more proud.
Saturday 11/23 - RUN Treadmill Mountain. I have a friend who has started doing these workouts and I thought I'd try one. 2 miles at 10% incline in 30 min. It was hard as hell.
Sunday 11/24 - RUN 3.1 in 30:00 (9:40 pace). This was Monday's run done a day early since I had an appointment with my sports med doc and then my girl's swim/dive banquet. Very cold, windy morning and I finished with exactly 30:00.00 on my watch. So bizarre.
