This week was a bit of a regression (there's that damn word again!) for me. I was only able to make it out to run three times last week because of pressing social engagements such as eating cheeseburgers, watching the All-Star game and drinking beer and dinner and ice cream with friends. Not very conducive to running. Even so I was able to squeeze in close to the same mileage as last week. However, this was hard again. Every run was a challenge and a chore. Bring back last week!
Monday - Three miles; easy pace.
Friday - 5.3 miles with attempted tempo run. I don't even remember how far I got with the tempo part. I believe it was only 1.5 miles.
Saturday - 7 mile long run on the Burke Gilman. Long and torturous and short walk breaks were needed.
Needless to say, unless you count lifting burgers and beer to my face as cross training, there was no cross training this week. But they were big beers so that counts, right?
Total mileage: 15.3
