Monday rest day. I meant to do the cross training I skipped yesterday but I was still really tired from the half.
Tuesday 8/12 - Run || 4 miles || 45:12, 11:18p || 63* and 90 humidity
My legs were sort of like, say whaaaaat?! Got 'em done but slowwww. I really should have done the cross training because my legs felt so much better by the end of this run. Splits 12:07/11:23/11:02/10:37. 4/242.8
Weird run with bathroom pitstops and trains and such but got it done, kept it easy, felt great...when did 8 become easy? Didn't do pace run this week to recover from the half last week. 12/250.8
Got to run with my husband! Was really nice to run with him. 17/255.8.
Friday 8/15 - Rest
Friday rest day.
Saturday 8/16 - Run || 17 miles || 3:10:23, 11:11p || 70*, and 85 humidity
The first 14 miles were pretty good - I kept it really slow since I know I'm not totally recovered from last week's half. The last 3 were tough and I had to walk for a minute every 1/2 mile the last mile and a half...but that's way better than my 15 miler went! I think the last few miles were hard because the shade all went away. Darn sun! 34/272.8
Sunday 8/17- Cross Train || 2.75 miles || 30min || Course 1, Level 3
Learned my lesson last week - legs feel much more sore without the cross training after the long run.
Total: 34 miles run, 2.75 elliptical! That 17 was easier than my half..
