I woke up at 5am and heard the rain so I reset my alarm and went back to sleep for another hour. After work I rushed home and changed my clothes and headed out in the sunshine for an easy run.
Tuesday - Tempo
Ran outside with the running club and pushed myself farther than I thought I could. 2x2.5 miles at tempo pace is a LONG way to run! But I made it and felt awesome!
I just was not feeling it in the morning after Tuesday's tough run and so I decided to take the day off because I knew I had another tough run coming on Thursday. My mileage was already higher than last week so I didn't want to push it.
Thursday - Tempo
7 miles/58:40/8:23 pace
My 25th Birthday with an awesome treadmill tempo run before work!
My plan said to run easy today but I decided to take another day because my long run Saturday was going to be L-O-N-G! I wanted to rest up my legs and not put any extra mileage on them.
Saturday - Long
12.92 miles/1:54:40/8:52 pace
Up at 5:30am to ran with the running group again. This run was the special "Run around the Bay" that they do every year. The original route was for 15 miles, but I ran a slightly shorter route which was just under 13 miles. Forecast called for rain but thankfully it held off until after the run.
Sunday - Off
Total week 4 mileage: 31 mi
