Slowly working my way back into the start of winter base training. But first I have the Detroit Turkey Trot so we are keeping up some light speed work until then.
Coaches instructions for Nov 1-7:
This week 40 - 45 miles.
Long run 12 miles @ low to mid 7's.
Normal easy days and the other days at mid to upper 7's.
How it played out:
Monday- Rest (jog/walk with David)
Tuesday-7 miles with track
Wednesday-7.25 miles 7:42 pace
Thursday-9.4 miles with 5 at 6:56 (helping pace friends for their tempo)
Saturday- 10 trails easy
Sunday- 12.5 at 7:32 pace (couldn't pass up the opportunity to do a new route and check out some rock formations so we were a bit slow the first half and hammered the last half a bit)
Track: goal 8*400 with 90 second rests under 90 for the quarters, just loosening up the legs basically. split (rest)
On a positive note for the year I have already run more miles this year than I did all of last year!
Still feeling a bit sluggish. I'll be happy when we get the mileage back up, I don't respond well to a less structured training plan for some reason.
