Monday: REST This normal rest day really helped me recharge.
Tuesday: Well, Coach Jake threw me for a loop with this one. Speed day was switched to Tuesday! Assignment wa 20min Warm Up, then 5 miles at 7:45-7:50 pace, followed by 10min Cool Down. When he told me a few weeks ago that I'd look at some workouts and go "ugh" I didn't realize it was going to come so soon! I DREADED this workout. As it turns out, I shouldn't have. I averaged 7:47 for the 5 miles and felt fine. I actually really LIKED this workout.
Wednesday: Wednesday was an easy pace road run, nothing special, other than my legs being a bit tired from Tuesday's run. Ran a bit too hard and got in 6.6 miles during the assigned hour. Too fast, but it felt pretty good.

Saturday: This run was a total suffer fest and I can't really call it a run. After not enough sleep, I only got in 8.1 miles in 2:27:09. Plan had called for 2:30:00 and I had hoped to get 10 miles or more. However, after a late Friday, and my left foot starting to freeze, I ended up going VERY slow and cutting it short.
Sunday: Went to the Ridge for for my 1:15:00 run. Was very tired, so took it easy. I got in 5.4 miles, which was good enough I guess.
Total Distance: 33.2 miles
Total Time on Feet: 6:51:25
