Week 3

Week 2
Monday
Easy run of 3 miles at 10:32 pace was the schedule. I ran 2.91 at 9:36 pace. Too fast and too short. That was typical of the whole week. Or at least as far as distance goes. I left the house later than I had time to run. I had to hurry through the run and just get back home for an appointment.

Wednesday
Speed workout of 2X1600 meter repeats with 800 meters in between. With warm up and cool down runs this was supposed to be a 5 mile day. Total mileage for the day was just under 5 miles. My speed sessions were supposed to be at a pace of 8:27. I managed an average of 8:36. Just felt sluggish.

Thursday
This was a rest/cross training day. I managed my first bike ride for exercise that day. I rode almost 8 miles at a pace of 13.2 MPH.

Saturday
This was supposed to be a 9 mile run at a 10:32 pace. Again, I left the house with not enough time to do the whole run. I did 8 miles at a 10:31 pace. I was very pleased with my consistent pacing. I ran my 4 mile loop 2 times. It was a bit disappointing to finish the loop and know that I had to do it all over again.

Week 3
Monday: 3 miles easy at 10:32

Wednesday: 3 mile tempo run at 8:57 with a 1 mile warm up and 1 mile cool down.

Saturday: 10 mile long run at 10:32 pace.
