This week was a lot like last week in both running quality and emotions. Still a little tightly wound, still logging lots of runs. But I am making progress on the first point, at least. I think. I have plans.
Monday: 5 miles
Tuesday: 8 miles
Thursday: 5 miles (supposed to be 6)
Saturday: 10 miles (!)
Sunday: 3 miles
Total miles run: 31
So this is kind of a new milestone for me. 30 miles a week. I have been hovering around 25 miles a week for a good couple of months now so this really feels good. Saturday’s run was my first double-digit run since probably last year and it felt really… solid. Not easy, not hard – just exactly how I wanted it to be. Other things about this week:
1. I’ve been paying less attention to pace lately and it’s been easier on my mind. But most of these were anywhere from 8:30 to 9:20 pace. I think my whole 10 mile run averaged out to 9:18 pace. I feel pretty satisfied with that.
2. On Thursday I had some motivational issues and skimped a bit on my milage. Not cool.
3. I also feel like I could be eating more green things.
