Hardest Workout (other than the Tour des Fleurs Quarter Marathon)
2 mile warm up
3 mile tempo @ 6:56/mile
4 x 200 @6:00/mile or faster pace with 30 seconds rest in between
2 mile cool down
My body was still recovering from the 20 miler and the tough 80 mile week which made holding the target pace difficult.
Easy Long Run
After a tough race on Saturday, being able to run 12 easy miles @ 8:35/mile down to 7:45/mile gave me an extra boost of confidence.
58 miles (93.3 km)
869 ft (265 m)
Too hot. Too humid. Too much ozone. The air quality reached level Red for Ozone twice last week. (Major asthma trigger)
My Mizunos bit the dust during my pre-race workout. I ran in my Saucony Fast Twitch Racers for the race on Saturday and for my long run on Sunday. My new Mizunos should arrive today.
