That's a wrap for week 7! I feel pretty good today, despite running my first 14-miler in a few months on Saturday. Contrary to the picture below when it hailed on me, we've had gorgeous weather the past few days, which is nice and spirit-lifting.
Here's what went down:
Monday: 6 miles, 8:38 pace.
Tuesday: Speed work on the treadmill! 1 mile w/u, six 800's with one lap jog between each, 1 mile c/d.
Thursday: 7 miles at marathon pace; I averaged 7:56/mile.
Friday: 5.25 miles, 8:34 pace.
Saturday: 14 miles, 8:14 pace.
Sunday: 6.16 miles, 8:39 pace.
Here's what to expect this week:
I've realized that tiredness has been weighing me down this past week, which I think means I need to drink more water. This may or may not be due to the fact that I don't drink water. (Intelligent, thought-provoking conclusion, no?) It's flavorless, it makes me burp (anyone else with me on that?) and unless I'm really craving it or trying to balance out my wine consumption, I would really rather care about not drinking it.
Too bad there's this nasty rumor going around that apparently I need to drink water to remain healthy.
Too bad that's not even a rumor and it's totally true.
Too bad my bad self is going suck it up and buckle down with the H20 this week.
Wish me luck! How do you get your water in throughout the day?
