Training 7.14.14 - Chicago Marathon W7

Monday 7/14 - Rest
Monday rest day.


Tuesday 7/15 - Run || 3 miles || 29:56, 9:59p || 55* and 80 humidity
Cold and humid is weird.. Splits 10:48/9:41/9:30. 3/133.7



Wednesday 7/16 - Run || 6 miles || 1:00:39, 10:06p || 54* 80% humidity
Cold and humid is still weird. Also, no bird attack again...maybe they're done nesting. Mile 5 I got caught behind a pair of runners on some single track so had to slow down. It reminded me how far I've come, because they were running about a 10mm. Splits 10:36/10:05/9:36/9:26/9:38/9:00.  9/139.7


Neat effect of cold and humid: My lake looked like it was steaming as I ran past.

Thursday 7/17 - Run || 3 miles || 29:34, 9:50p || 55*, and 85 humidity
Tired and could not get going the first mile, but got it in. Last mile felt so much easier than the first. Splits 10:44/9:50/8:51. 12/142.7.


Friday 7/18 - Run || 9 miles || 1:31:54, 10:12p || 70 and 60% humidity
This run ended up faster paced than I was aiming for, but I kind of just wanted it to be over because I wanted dinner and I did it at night. That sounds terrible now that I wrote that but hey, I was hungry! I saw fireworks and lots of fireflies as I ran. 21/151.7


Saturday 7/19 -  Rest
Rest


Sunday 7/20 - Walk || 45 minutes
Family walk this week!

Total: 21 miles run, 45 minutes walked. Cut back week...next week my long run jumps to 14 and I am super absurdly nervous. My mid week long run jumps to 7 next week and no more 3 milers...they bump to 4!

  1. That's a good week of training and I completely understand rushing through a run because you're ready to eat!
