Arghhh! This week has been nuts! (Rain and no recess is the perfect recipie to make Phoenician kiddos ‘fun’!) My upcoming week will be even crazier as I head into parent-teacher conference week, and try to run 80 miles as well. After Friday at 1:45pm I will finally be able to breathe. Until then, its go, go, go!
Tuesday’s track practice was insane! There were only 6 of us from my group there as it was POURING!!! I ran 9.8 miles with 12x400m in less than 88 sec. each with 1 min. recovery in between. I was soaking wet and freezing by the time I got home. It was so nuts!! The rain just got worse as the evening went on. Who runs 10 miles in the rain? I do. 🙂
Do you run in the rain? Here are some pics from our rainstorm, big deal as we hardly ever get rain! Second picture has a drenched coyote!! Poor little fella!
Wednesday I had 6.5 miles recovery, Thursday’s run was 10 miles with 10x100m strides. I actually had to go to the gym for this one. One workout of crazy-rain running is enough for the week! The treadmill wasn’t too bad. I don’t have an ipod that works, so I just zoned out for the 10 miles. I never did do the strides as they are pretty much impossible on the treadmills at my gym. I ended with a 7:30 pace. Not bad. Friday I had recovery 6 miles that I ran with Tank. It was just ‘misting’ outside, so we ran all around the park. Matt and I went to the gym after work to do some core exercises.
Saturday’s run was 10 miles with 2x2miles in 13:00 (6:30 pace) I felt really good and hammered those all out under 6:30. 7:03 average pace for the 10 mile run.
Here are my pics from last Sunday’s expo! Our camera is still not turning on, time for a new one.
