Whew. So after a seriously awful week 6, week 7 turned into a really, really, good week. My legs felt great, and I easily (ish) completed all my runs for the week.
BORING, I know.
Fast: 8 miles total with 4 miles at 8:45
Long: 15 miles
Total: I GOT THE OKAY TO RUN 60 MILES! HELLSFUCKINGYES, bitches!
My tempo run was probably one of the easiest workouts I've had in a long ass time
The Long, I ran 15 miles and felt pretty damn good. One thing I'm noticing lately is that it takes me a LONG ass time to get warmed up and in a groove. Not sure what that's about (need to fit more yoga in?), but it's kinda annoying. It's like after 30-45 minutes that's when things really start clicking for me. WEIRD.
For the week I finished up with 59 miles. Here's a tip, if you have to run 11 miles on a Sunday to get your planned mileage for the week, and you're in a different city, and you have a friend volunteer to run part of it with you... DON'T GET YOUR FRIEND DRUNK THE NIGHT BEFORE. Because she will be too hungover to run with you and it's going to be too dark to run by yourself in a different city when your boyfriend goes for his run with his fast friends, so you'll have to run 10.5 miles on the goddamn treadmill in the hotel. OMG, I wanted to slit my wrists after about 1 mile.
So, despite that sour end to the week, overall, the week was really good. I'm getting my runs in easily and feeling good. This week marked 16 weeks out from the marathon.
