    alright 12 mi 02:10 10:47 pace

    I went into the run with the plan to hold a 10:15/10:30 pace. I figured if I could do that then a 9:30 pace PR attempt next weekend wouldn't be completely out of the question. It's out of... read more

      you can still race a good 30-60 secs faster next week coming into it rested, hydrated and having the race environment to carry you. You dont want to run your race before your race, so it is good your body forced you to keep it in the 10's.

    alright Legs mostly 00:40

    Just going through the motions. Too much on my mind.
    Deadlifts, lunges, leg press, seated calf raises, shrugs, back extensions.

    Better today. Legs not as dead.

    Turns out I'm going to finish out the year with one last half marathon (in 10 days!), so I should probably run tonight.

    Rough start with dead legs from lifting & arms also too sore to hold myself up, but as the peasant who got turned into a newt said in Holy Grail, I got better.

      It's funny - I have this great road bike but I'm terrified of biking in the street. Too many asshole drivers and lack of bike lanes here. I feel safer on the trainer.

      That's what I tell myself when I run 10. Hey, if someone held a gun to my head and forced me to run three more, I TOTALLY COULD. Double digits is an accomplishment, regardless of how it feels.

      I can't imagine running in your weather all winter. I almost hated my 16 miler yesterday morning in the cold dark hours. When I lived in Virginia, I was grumpy from December all the way to March. Great job getting it done & nice pace, too!

      Umm. Are you missing some recovery days? I can't find any :). Recovery days are what make those muscle fibers grow back stronger. You break them down with the workouts, then rest days mend them back together stronger than before, but if they are constantly breaking down there's not much chance for full repair to a stronger state.

      I did nothing on Sunday but yes, I think these 2-3 workouts a day are starting to wear on me. I have nothing planned tonight except margaritas with my friend, Elizabeth, so can we call that a rest?

      You doubled up your cardio yesterday. Tough to keep up the intensity. Miles are in the book.
