The weather was absolutely beautiful today. The calf felt great, so I headed out for my planned 10.5 mile run. It was fantastic. I did a great job maintaining my pace and felt like I could run another 5 miles at the end. I finished the 10.5 in 1:29:09 for an average pace of 8:30 per mile. To summarize the week:
Tuesday: 200 & 800m intervals (7.5 miles)
Wednesday: 6 miles easy
Thursday: Somewhat botched 8 mile tempo run
Friday: 15 miles on the bike
Saturday: 5 miles easy
Sunday: 10.5 miles easy
Total mileage: 37 miles running + 15 miles cycling.
Next week is a race week, so I’ll dial the mileage back just a little.
