Monday- 5 miles kinda hard. 33 minutes. Just tried to keep the effort up on this run. Tried to push the pace with out working too hard.
Tuesday- Workout, 800, 400 alternating on half rest-4 sets.
This was a good old Keene State work out. I remember this being one of the toughest work outs of the season although I think we were dong 6 sets back then, and you had to be going low 2:20's and low 70's if not under to stay with the pack. Today I didn't (and couldn't if I wanted to) hit these that hard. I went 2:38, 76, 2:41, 79, 2:42, 80, 2:44, 73. I was having a hard time holding to my 5:20 goal pace for this, but the work out went pretty well. 8 miles total.
Wednesday- 9 miles easy. Felt good tried to just relax on my run and enjoy being out there. Got excited a few times and had to remind myself to ease off and recover from yesterday's work out.
Thursday-Steady 10 miles with Scott McGrath.
My first run at Maudslay Park. Felt great, gorgeous trails, nice run.
Friday- 4 easy am, 4.5 pm
Just easy runs. I'm happy I squeezed in the second run.
Went down to the marathon expo in the morning, and ended up getting back so late that we didn't have time to run.
Nice long run on the Franklin rail trail with Abbey, Scott Clark, Ernie Brake and a couple of their HS runners. felt great to run with a group. Put in some faster miles on the way back after a pit stop halfway
Week Total- 53.5 felt good this week. looking for a few more miles next week though.
