Quick recap of a week's worth of workouts:
Last Saturday - COLD (22-degrees), a freaking snow storm about halfway through my 10 mile run and windy the whole way. Averaged about 10:30 pace -- a bit slow for me. Overall, a pretty miserable run. (On the bright side, no emergency pit stops this week!)
Throughout the week I got my runs in, but no abs or lifting. It was an unusal week with things going on 3 nights during the week -- a birthday celebration dinner, a professional networking event and a send-off party for someone at work.
Yesterday's 12 mile run was ... GREAT! I felt good and my splits were fairly consistent:
Mile 1: 10:28 -- Crap. This run WILL NOT be like last weekends.
Mile 2: 10:00 -- Okay. A little better.
Mile 3: 9:54 -- Good.
Mile 4: 10:02 -- Still consistent.
Mile 5: 10:00 -- Still consistent.
Mile 6: 9:49 -- Sweet!
Mile 7: 9:41 -- Awesome. And, I feel great!
Mile 8: 10:14 -- Getting bored now.
Mile 9: 10:06 -- Ugh. Remind me again how I handle 20-milers?
Mile 10: 10:04 -- Okay, come on. Only 2 more to go.
Mile 11: 10:05 -- Not bad, but not great. Hey, this is the longest I've run in a long time.
Mile 12: 9:50 -- Wow. Only 1.1 more miles left. :)
Didn't workout today, but lots of stretching and using The Stick. I had a ton to do today (and still to do) before I head out to NY tomorrow. I'll be there until Thursday, so next time I blog it'll be from the Big Apple.
