As far as workouts go, this week was both awful and amazing. It just went to prove that one bad workout doesn't need to affect the next one. I need to hold onto that, because I'm sure I'll need that little tidbit of information later.
Monday 7-21-14 LIFT 90 minutes. I'm almost to the end of July and this lifting program. I really hope coach mixes it up again for August.
Tuesday 7-22-14 RUN 3 miles easy (10:58 pace). This run felt like my legs were running through mud.
Wednesday 7-23-14 LIFT 90 minutes. Bad workout and got called out for bitching about it. #tribelove #justtrollin. Then BIKE 9 miles at a snails pace with a local bike group. I won't do that again. I hate biking around that many people and in traffic.
Thursday 7-24-14 RUN 6 miles with 3x1600. It was a blessedly cool morning and I nailed this run. Averaged a 10:02 overall and a 9:34 on the miles (just shy of the 9:18 goal).
Friday 7-25-14 REST
Saturday 7-26-14 RUN long 20 miles! I averaged an 11:18 pace using a 5 minute run / 1 minute walk interval. I felt great through about 18 miles and it was a great redemption after how I felt running in Chicago the week before. It occurred to me right before the run that this is only the 4th time I've run this far.
Sunday 7-27-14 REST and RECOVERY. I woke up feeling really good. Only some aches in my achilles and back. The rest of me felt pretty darn good.
Looking forward to my step-back week and "only" 16 miles on my next long run.
