I did hit all of my miles. After consistently running 11:30-12 min miles for months, my two 5-milers were well under 11. My long run... well.
The first half was perfect. I was comfortably running the pace I'd like to keep for the PCRF half. Then we turned around, and were running into the sun, and I fell apart.
It was a million degrees, no shade, and the sun was relentless. And my pace dropped from 11-min miles to 12-12:30.
It. was. so. hot. and. miserable.
I test-ran my outfit for race day, and it worked, so there's that?
Then yesterday, threw in another 1.15 miles to hit my highest mileage week ever.
I did ZERO cross training. No Suck Less Program. No yoga. Nothing. I was exhausted all week, and just couldn't get it together.
Oh well. Moving on...
Monday: Suck Less Program
Tuesday: 4 mile tempo
Wednesday: Yoga, Suck Less Program
Thursday: 4 miles speed work
Friday: Suck Less Program
Saturday: 6 miles (Hellooooo, taper!)
Anyway, like all of you, I'm watching the Boston Marathon today... This Desiree chick is killing it.
