M-A Big Bear Run 5K Race Week!!
2 Weeks To Windsor Green Half Marathon
Grand Total: 40.25 miles
* 32.8 easy
* 4.2 speed/intervals
* 3.25 race
Any week when I run 40+ miles is a good week. Also, any week when I run a PR is a stellar week. So let's focus on those things.
Monday: 8 easy. Nothing really remarkable to say about this run; it was fine.
Tuesday: 2 wu + 3 x 1.4 @ 10K pace + 1.8 cd = 8. 7:16, 7:14, 7:10 for the intervals (pace), which is okay but not super consistent. It really should've been four intervals & a shorter cool down but I was having some red flag sort of shin splint pain in my left leg & I am not trying to have another injury scare before a race. So three it was.
Wednesday: 8 easy. One of those easy days that isn't. My legs were still tired from Tuesday's track session, plus I'd had a long day & was just tired in general. Tired legs => poor form => complain-ey shins/ankle/feet. I was just glad to put this one in the books.
Friday: 6 easy with hill pickups.
Saturday: 6 easy. Just an easy pre-race shakeout run.
Sunday: 1 wu + 3.25(???)ish race = 4.25. Big Bear Run 5K! Lots of fun & a great race. (Race report here.)
Fortunately, there's not much else to say about this week because I am ZONKED. Early bedtime for me tonight, I think.
