Monday - Core work. Skipped my run as my feet were swollen up. Guess I messed up my salt/fluid intake a little in the 90 degree heat during my 5 hours on trail the day before. Better safe than sorry Tuesday - Mile repeats x 4. Felt like crap when I took off for my warm up and though my first two repeats. Both were just under 6 minute miles (5:59 and 5:58) then I came around and landed a 5:54 and 5:41 for my last two repeats. Pumped my fist and gave out a solid "HELL YEA!" after that 5:41. A little core work too. - 7.27 miles
Wednesday - Tabata run and core - 3 miles
Thursday - rest
Friday - negative split run first 52:30 @ 7:58, 2nd 52:30 @ 7:24. 13.75 miles
Saturday - Hit the Green Rock trail. 22 miles
Sunday - rest, peeps, and ham
Total - 46 miles and 7:49 of training
An okay week coming off of a big one. Some runs were spot on, others were just blah. Really jacked about the mile splits. I can say for certain that I have not ran anything that fast since high school track in 97. This week is taper time and a 50 miler on Saturday. Going to get to bed early every night, along with keeping the quality calories and fluids up. Ready to do this!
