Monday - Off
Tuesday - Tempo
7.3 miles/57:51/7:56 pace
The last real tough workout before the half marathon.
1x3mi at Tempo - 7:27 pace
1x2mi at Tempo - 7:23 pace
We had a bit of rain during the run and it was windy and cold. Definitely didn't feel like spring but I ran with the running group which helped this run go by quick. I really thought I had put away my winter running clothes for good, but apparently not. My best deer caught in headlights look -
Wednesday - Easy Lunch Run
3.2 miles/28:40/8:55 pace
Despite a few sprinkles I headed out for a run at lunch. After a quick jaunt around the block, I snuck back into work and changed back into my work clothes without anyone being any wiser of my run!
Thursday - Windy Tempo
7.6 miles/1:04:07/8:27 pace
This was a horrible run. I had to run at 5am because I had plans after work, so at 5am I headed out for an easy warm up and then some miles at half marathon pace. As I turned the corner to start my HMP run I was smacked with the wind that didn't stop until I got back home. It was frustrating to be running an extremely hilly route that also was windy.

Friday - Off
Best part of the day was waking up to a beautiful sunrise.
3.3 miles/30:00/9:05 pace
I woke up to pouring sideways rain and so I quickly changed plans and headed to the gym, for the second Saturday in a row. This workout was originally planned for Sunday morning, but I did a switcharoo and ran it today and moved my longer run to Sunday when the weather would be better!
7.45 miles/1:00:04/8:04 pace
I was up at sunrise and headed out on the road for this run. The plan was to run to Easter breakfast with my family. I did a short 2 mile warm up and then did 20 mins at tempo pace (7:24 pace) and then ran the rest of the way easy. It was a great reward to sit down and have a nice cup of hot coffee and breakfast after a quiet morning longish run.
