The miles and temperatures are climbing

I was feeling a bit fatigued today from yesterday's strong run in the heat. I ran with the 7:30 pace group with the CARA Wheaton group (there were three of us) . It was very warm and I feel pretty good about our paces given the 70+'s plus the humidity.

11 miles at 7:28 pace - 5.5 out and 5.5 back on the Prarie Path
4 miles at 7:50 pace - headed back on my own after 11 miles
Total: 15 miles - 1:56

On Friday, I did seven fairly easy miles at around 8:25 avg pace.

Overall, I came up 3 miles short from the weekly goal of 46, pretty much due to the crappy run I had on Thursday.

Recap of 6/11 week

Mon - 5
Tue - 10
Wed - Rest
Thu - 6
Fri - 7
Sat - 15
Sun - Rest

Total: 43

This week again will be very busy. We are going to the BNL concert tomorrow night - then I fly back again to CT early Tuesday morning. Due to travel, evening events and the 10-mile race on Sunday, I will only be able to target 45 miles this coming week. I hope to nail the fifty mark the week of July 2nd.

Week of 6/18 plan

Mon - 10 miles
Tue - 4 recovery
Wed - 8 general aerobic w/10x100m strides
Thu - Rest
Fri - 7 easy
Sat - 4 miles recovery
Sun - 2 warm-up miles + 10 race = 12 total

Target: 45
