At the beginning of the week, my goal was to get back into everything. Success! I was able to actually get in all of my workouts this week and took today off. Here's how it went:
Monday - swim around 3200
Tuesday - treadmill run - 8 miles total
Wednesday - swim around 3200
Thursday - met with speedy group - 7 miles
Friday- swim around 3200
Saturday - long run - part with a friend and part alone - 12 miles. Ya!
I was happy to get in that long run. My friend stopped at 7.5 miles and that was where a faster pace ended too. I was kind of bummed to feel myself majorly slowing down. I know I can run faster, but when I'm alone, I am not good at pacing. I basically run the pace of whoever I am running with. For 7.5 miles we ran 8:35 average pace. In the end, I ended up right around 9:00 pace. My goal for my race in 1 month is the 8:35 pace so it makes me nervous I can't run faster on my own. I am just getting back in the game so hopefully in the next few weeks I'll feel faster.
Did you meet your goals for the week?
