|I'll be your lap counter next year.|
After seeing Heidi, I rushed back home to do my long run. It was an overcast day and I didn't want to miss my window of opportunity. I had 8 miles to complete, I had my route picked out and I was off. It was a fairly easy day, although the calves were a little sore from the sandy run the day before. At the end of my long run, I pulled off a 9:11 pace for the total of 8.49 miles. Not a bad day. It was a little faster that what I should have run it in, but I was inspired by the triathletes whom I saw earlier crossing the finish lines. They were all doing three events and all I had to do is run.
That's it for Week #3. I would say this was a great training week. I survived it. There are no injuries thus far. That's huge for me since I am now running 5 days a week as opposed to 3-4 days a week from previous training plans.
Week # 4 looks like this:
Monday X-Train 30 minutes on the bike, 5-8 sec hill sprints,
Tuesday 6mi sorta-long-run
Wednesday 4 x hill
Thursday 3 mi easy
Saturday 6 mi pace run
Sunday 13 mi long run
