Regardless, I logged 29.2 miles last week AND continued the #RWRunStreak!
I had a tempo run of 2 mi warm up, 3 miles at 6:55-7:15 pace followed by 1 mi cooldown. I ended up doing my tempo a bit faster (6:50) despite strict instructions to NOT do that. Oops! Sorry, coach.
My long run was to be an easy 11 miles. I was planning on doing it Saturday afternoon. After a warmer than usual December in Wisconsin, it ended up being 15 degrees or some crazy cold day on Saturday. That and the fact that I wasn't feeling the greatest, made me decide to push off the long run to Sunday. It ended up being a good decision - it was 40+ degrees on Sunday!
The long run was not easy though. I ended up eating chili for lunch which was a bad decision. Of course all restrooms are closed for the winter along my usual route so I ended up ducking into a Dairy Queen (has happened before ....THIS SAME WEEK LAST YEAR!). I made it through 11.43 miles because my foggy brain couldn't do math accurately. My pace was 7:50 average, which typically is a bit slow for me but felt hard.
My two maintenance workouts were 4 miles each.
At this timepoint, I was much faster last year compared to this year. I'm not exactly sure why.
Total Miles Last Week: 29.2 (Plan Goal: 25 miles)
I continued the #RWRunStreak challenge by running 1.1 miles on the other 3 days of last week.
As I am writing this, I have completed 25 days of consecutive running.
Last week I also found out that I was accepted as a Nuun ambassador for 2016! I really like Nuun products, which is why I applied for their program. Fun times!
