This week's runs:
Monday: Rest Day
Tuesday: Rest Day
Wednesday: Rest Day
Thursday: 6.81 miles (8:22 pace)
Friday: 10.65 miles (8:22 pace, somehow I ran the exact same pace two days in a row)
Saturday: Tempo Run - 5x 1.09 mile loop = 5.45 miles. My goal is still to run 6:30 per loop (5:58 pace). Splits were 6:35, 6:29, 6:31, 6:35, 6:25. Total distance with warmup and cooldown was 7.49 miles. I felt much more in control for this run than I did the last time. If it wasn't for a slightly slow first lap, and some laziness on the fourth lap this one would have been perfect. This was the first workout this cycle that I felt really good about.
Sunday: 5.67 miles (8:55 pace)
Total mileage: 30.6 miles
The plan going forward is to increase mileage into the 40's and do two workouts per week (one hills and one tempo) as well as increase the distance of my long runs.
