Same run as last Monday.  I'm going to call it my UP/DOWN run.  8 miles up easy, then 5 miles down at tempo effort.  AP up 7:45, AP down 6:09.

Total run 13 miles, AP 7:09, 1:32:55

Felt really easy the whole way.  Gotta like that.

What a beautiful day for speed work at the track!!!  It was 60 degrees with no wind.

2+ mile warm up on the roads. 

8 x 150m In/Out sprints with 250m slow recovery jog.  The all out 50m sprint in the middle of the 150m felt much smoother and faster this week.

4 x 1 mile with 400m walk recoverys. Splits as follows: 5:52 (this felt slow after those sprints), 5:57, 5:56, 6:02 (my legs started tying up right at the beginning of this mile.)

3+ mile cool down on the roads.

Total run 13 miles, 1:45:59

Was running late so no time for the usual elliptical work.  I'm so crazy mixing it up like that. LOL

If you recall last week I ran 20 miles without carbs and crashed hard early in the run.  I was thinking about that run and how I felt the night before and the day after, and I realized I probably had a little flu bug or something.  I therefor decided to recreate the run today.  I ate last night at dinner for my last meal.  I didn't eat before my run this morning.  I did pack gu packs with me incase I crashed like last week, but I didn't end up using any.  I just drank water on the run.  It was a much better experience this week.

I ran the same route as last week, and the first 10 miles I was 30 seconds faster, right at 1:14:30 for an AP of 7:27.  Of course I did slow down on the second half being that I had no fuel, but nothing like last week.  The second 10 took my 1:19:25, AP 7:55.  I felt a million times better than last week and was not completely delirious when I got home.  

Total run 20 miles, 2:33:55, AP 7:42

I definitely had some kind of bug last week.  I don't think I'll be attempting the fuel free 20 mile run any time soon again though.  It definitely is a tough run for those last few miles.  Next Friday 24 miles... with plenty of carbs!

I have not run more than 3 days a week for over a year now.  Today that changed.  I have decided to do Doone's long runs with her during her marathon training, so I'll be doing those with her on Saturday mornings as a nice recovery run from my Friday long runs.  We got up early since I needed to be at a service project at 6:30.  It was a beautiful morning and it was so fun to run and talk with my sweetie.  The time really flew by.  I can tell I will look forward to our weekly runs.  How great is it to get to go out and spend quality time like that with the one you love!

10 miles, AP 9:34
