RUNNING DOWN THE ROAD TO TAMPA
MARATHON TRAINING – WEEK 2 OF 16
EST DIST: 5.0
EST PACE: 7:47
6:44 AM - I have to say that I felt awful today. It was a poor run. Simply had one of those days where I couldn’t get the vibe. Felt sluggish. Had an upset stomach. I couldn’t wait to be done. Plus the Polar had a glitch in recording. Said I did an 11:58 first mile? No way.
This is a busy week, too. Have a three-day Category Management training session ; not too mention the LE1 Validation and Project work to keep up on!
Oh well, it was a start. We got home pretty late on Sunday night from Chicago and I was tired to start the week.
6:42 AM – Trying to improve upon yesterday. Felt a little better, but it was still a sluggish run.
Had an excellent night’s sleep. I think I was simply exhausted earlier in the week. Today’s pace was far more similar to what I am used to. Was proud of myself. Got to bed early on Thurs night. Got up at 5:55 AM. Had a strong 7-miler, breakfast and made it to Vince Murphy's office for a meeting at 8AM. How's that for discipline?
Just wanted to catch up this week. It was a nice fall day. Had an easy run around the back neighborhood.
Sunday, 11/20/05 – Mohawk’s Peak plus add-on at Toilsome
12 NOON - Picture perfect weather. 49 degrees and sunny. I rocked this run. Ran amazingly well considering I felt a bit hung over. What a kick-ass run. Today’s run was supposed to be a RACE so I pushed the pace intentionally. Great run. Great job keeping achieving the target for the week.
TOTAL FOR THE WEEK: 28.2 MILES
