Last week was a little better in terms of consistency from the week before:
Monday: 6.5 miles (with a few threshold pace miles catching up to the varsity boys)
Tuesday: 3 miles easy
Wednesday: 5 miles easy
Friday: 12 miles
Still a pretty small total all things considered. I was planning on doing a 3 mile shakeout on Sunday, but it rained all day. The 12 miles on Friday morning was about 24 minutes faster than the previous week’s run with Sandy, but I completely bonked in the last 2 miles. I was down to running a quarter/walking a quarter in the last mile.
So, with the Wine & Dine half marathon coming up I’m not sure what I’m going to do. I think I’ll just shoot for a 9 minute mile pace and see how I feel. If I’m feeling good at 10, then I’ll kick it up for the finish. Given the shape I’m in now, it’ll be my worst half-marathon time even in the best conditions so there’s no pressure at all. I’ll be able to focus on helping the rest of the team and if anyone else needs a pacer, then I’ll be happy to do that!
