Half Marathon - Week 7

Monday - Easy
3.25 miles/28:27/8:46 pace

Lunch Run and then Yoga after work.

Tuesday - Tempo
7.7 miles/1:03:21/8:14 pace

I went to running club after work like usual.  The workout was pretty intense:
4x 1mi at tempo (~7:30 pace)
5x 200m uphill w/200m downhill recovery

This is how it turned out: 7:30, 7:24, 7:23, 7:14
I was pretty happy with the paces and they felt really good.  Running with the girls always makes these workouts so much more enjoyable!

Wednesday - Off

After 4 days in a row of runs I needed a break.  I tried to get to the gym to cross train but I just wanted to get home and rest.

Thursday - Interval
5.5 miles/41:22/7:32 pace

Running club run!

Friday - Off

After work Brian and I headed to the Running club Spring dinner.  The club not only knows how to run but also how to drink and eat!  The buffet spread was amazing and I had trouble not getting second and third helpings!

Saturday - Long
10 miles/1:22:12/8:14 pace

The start of Monster Weekend of runs!

First long run of the weekend with 2x 25 mins at HMP with 3 min recovery.  The sun was out and although it was a bit cold it was so nice to be outside. 

Sunday - Long
7.5 miles/1:03:23/8:28 pace

Second long run of the weekend.  The sun was out again and I headed out for 7.5 miles with 2.5 miles at marathon pace.

Total week 7 mileage: 33.95 mi
