A very pleasant long run

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:

Monday: Off

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.

  1. i’m starting to think you want me to get fat and slow on the m&m’s… (eating some more as i type) i did not know that about the lv marathon, i’m definitely going to have to look into it now! 🙂

    nice job on your 10+ miler and solid week all around. hope the calf was just a random flare up and doesn’t come back around. i don’t know how much you are lookin’ forward to the race next weekend but i’m pretty excited to see how you do.
