Week 11 recap

I am feeling really good right now.  Actually, I am pretty amazed at how well my body is handling how much I am running.  I am fairly confident it is from the things besides running I have been doing – weights & yoga.

47.1 miles for the week

Monday
5 miles EASY, 43:03, 8:36 pace
legs (and whole body) were sore from skiing Sunday!!!

Tuesday
8 miles, 1:01:45, 7:43 pace
ran with my new running buddy!

Wednesday
5.26 miles, 43:52, 8:21 pace
legs were tired but better than I thought
75 minute hot yoga class

Thursday
9 miles on the treadmill – 5 x mile, plus warm up & cool down
1:11:11 total time, 7:55 average

1.5 miles warm up – 13:12
5 x mile with .25 recovs
6:58 (2:20)
6:55 (2:19)
6:51 (2:49)
6:48 (2:33)
6:45
1.5 mile cool down – 14:10 (walked 2 min then ran easy)

Friday
5.76 miles, 46:29, 8:06 pace
my sleep app woke me up at 4:50, so I got up and had a quick cup of coffee before I ran – it’s so much easier to run a decent pace after coffee! ;) ran very relaxed – I am amazed at how good my legs are feeling right now.
75 min hot yoga

Saturday
14 miles, 2:01:09, 8:39 pace
lots and lots of big hills (even walked a short amount up the 2 BIGGEST hills)
considered this more of a “time on your feet run” than aiming to hit a certain distance – but 14 miles AND 2 hours was my minimum.
