I waited out this morning’s rain, feeling quite sorry for those who were running the Gasparilla half marathon and full marathon. Congrats to Denise for sticking it out in the full marathon despite high winds and rain to beat her Disney time and to Deb and Kim who finished their first half marathon. I ran 6 miles at easy pace. The legs were a little tired from the race, but it was nice to get them moving and I think they’ll be better off Monday because of it.
Here’s a review of this week’s action:
Monday: 1200 m intervals – 6 miles
Tuesday: Easy treadmill run – 5 miles
Wednesday: 1.5 mile T pace intervals – 8 miles
Friday: Easy treadmill run with strides – 2 miles
Saturday: Race with warmup and cooldown – 4.1 miles
Sunday: Easy run at the park – 6 miles
Total: 30.1 miles
So, it was a light week due to the race, but it was the first time since starting the 5K training plan that I put together 3 good quality runs. It was my last week at VDOT 47. I’ll be up to VDOT 48 next week.
I totalled 135 miles in February. So, I’m starting to crawl back up the mileage meter. I’ll be back at 42 miles next week.
