OK, I am a little behind with these but I have (mostly) been doing the work.
Sunday - 3 uneventful miles
Monday - 5.6 strong miles at the lake. These felt seriously good.
Wednesday - 3.5 on the treadmill. There were some great Olympic moments on TV that night that made this much easier. I also did 1/4 mile intervals which I had never done on the treadmill before. I wasn't sure I was going fast enough for the intervals but by the end my legs were getting very rubbery so I figured I did alright.
Thursday - Yoga. Didn't get into this one; just wasn't feeling it at all.
Total weekly mileage: 12.1
Wednesday - 6 miles at the lake. These are faster by about 22 second per mile then the same distances this time last year. This was one of the best runs I have had in recent memory. The kind where you find yourself breaking into smiles and you feel like you are floating and can run forever. *sigh* Sadly, these can be fleeting.
Thursday - Blew off yoga class to go home and run 3 sucky treadmill miles.
Friday - 4 sucky miles. I forgot I was supposed to be doing speedwork but there was no way my legs were going to handle it.
Saturday - 3 marginally less crappy miles on the treadmill. I was supposed to go 4 but the idea of one more mile on that thing and one more minute in the garage was making my skin crawl so I called it a night.
Total weekly mileage: 16
I really need to get my running days spread out because I know that I am not as effective if I bunch them all together. Besides, that just seems like an injury waiting to happen. Hopefully after this week (where I overbooked myself again) I can get into a more reasonable running rhythm. Also maybe start the cross-training I have been neglecting.
Week 8 should be a new weekly mileage record for me. Woo-hoo!
