I ran 46 miles last week.
This week will be around 54.
I have 7 weeks until the next marathon (will be #4).
Tempo runs are going great. They are on Thursdays. For the last 3 weeks I have done 8 miles at marathon pace. Goal pace: 7:38
2 weeks ago splits:
7:34, 7:47, 7:48, 7:40, 7:42, 7:41, 7:42, 7:26 (not bad but some were a little slow)
1 week ago splits:
7:35, 7:37, 7:35, 7:35, 7:36, 7:33, 7:28, 7:31 (pretty nice....but all were too fast...I don't want to bonk)
7:39, 7:40, 7:38, 7:37, 7:39, 7:40, 7:39, 7:39 (YES....that's more like it)
I dropped a 5 gallon jug of water on my foot on Wednesday. Hurt like crazy. Ryan informed me it hurt because they weigh 40 pounds. I was balancing it on my bumper to close the hatch and it slipped...onto my foot. It's ok though...luckily.
On Tuesday, Ryan and I ran at the track with my 3 nephews. I had to do speedwork. The 4-year old "O" (who is the cutest thing on Earth with giant blue eyes and has eyelashes like a camel) ran 2 laps with Ryan. One of them was completely without stopping. Ryan and O were both wearing bright yellow. Ryan helped O with his stride and they ran side-by-side. Cutest thing ever....this tiny runner with beautiful natural form looking up at Ryan in the beautiful NM sunshine chatting as they ran together. A moment I will remember. SOOOOO wish I'd had my camera.
Run Happy Everyone!
