This week's runs:
Monday: 3.14 miles (8:10 pace)
Tuesday: Rest Day
Wednesday: 4.8 miles (8:46 pace)
Thursday: 5.67 miles (8:07 pace)
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: 0.54 miles barefoot (8:58 pace) and 6.81 miles (7:38 pace)
Sunday: Tempo Run - For this I did a 1.09 mile loop on the streets three times. My goal is to run 6:30 per loop (5:58 pace). My splits were 6:19, 6:37 and 6:41. So I was fast on the first one and paid for it on the next two but overall I was pretty happy with it, since it's the first time I've run hard since the Reindeer Run. Total distance with warmup and cooldown was 5.31 miles.
Total mileage: 26.3 miles
And if you're looking for some inspiration I'll leave you with my favorite motivational tool: the training montage! The king of training montages is of course Rocky. We'll start with the original (maybe I should start drinking raw eggs for breakfast hmm...).
Good luck to everyone with your training!
