Weekly Recap – 100 Miles of Sweat

Monday – 22.2 Miles
Since I missed my long run over the weekend, I had some catching up to do. 8:28 pace while I slipped and slid over the same 2 mile path over and over again.

Tuesday – 8 Miles, 15 miles biking on trainer
I tried to take it easy but ended up in the grey of 7:45 pace on incline 2. My spin class got canceled cause of the winter storm we had, so I biked 15 miles at 17MPH according to the Garmin. Who knows if that’s even true.

Wednesday – 10 Miles
Ran this in two parts, 8 miles at incline 3, 2 at incline 2. Average pace 8:05 per my notes but I forgot what each individual run was

Thursday – 8 Miles
7:37 Pace during lunch. Tried harder but did not reach my 7:30 pace. Bad sleep, lots of coughing. Went to a 7:30PM spin class afterwork. Don’t know my distance for that.

Friday – 2 Miles
Just a little shake to break a sweat for 15 minutes or so at home.

Saturday – 20.25 Miles 8:12 Pace
Final long run before New Orleans.I was suppose to wake up at 4:30 AM to run a 50K at the Cape, but due to potential snowstorm we bailed and I slept in til the afternoon.

The weather warmed up a bit to 30s, but the wind, wind was brutal. I actually opened my door, got blasted with a gust of wind and went back and changed into my windbreaker. I hated the orange Boston jacket when I first got it, but after seeing the 2014 colors, I’m feeling better and better about my shade of orange.

I held to 8 minute pace for 15 miles on a flat path were 24 MPH winds were against me half the time, but as I wrapping up into my 20 miler, getting the last miles done was painful.

I was definitely dragging myself mentally and physically for the final 5K.

Total Feeling – Pretty good! Wish I had 3 weekends all the time, I’d become a super athlete then.
