Total Miles: 50.81
Snow, wind, and sore from 24 yesterday.
Tuesday: 9.1 miles
Ran a tempo run over some gradual hills, pushing hard, and then practicing finding my pace again at the top. 7:41 pace wasn’t bad.
Thursday: 7.07 miles
Easy run with Chase.
Friday: 11.5 miles
Changed my mid-week “longer” run to today on purpose so I could do a quasi back-to-back run coupled with Saturday’s trail run. This ended up being more of a pace run at a 7:49 pace, but I hoped I would feel fatigued the next day!
Saturday: 16 miles
Felt great and it was my fastest trail run yet. Yes, my legs were a bit tired from the previous days 11.5 at 7:49 pace, but my lungs and breathing were strong.
Sunday: 7.14 miles
Definitely felt the weekends back-to-back runs today! Legs felt pretty sluggish, but this is exactly what I wanted.
Looking forward to warmer weather! A little disappointed with lower mileage, but also wanting to listen to my body for off-days. I think I will benefit from taking a random day off, rather than pushing through when I know better.
