|This is one of my favorite houses around--in Cardiff. And they always do awesome Halloween and Christmas displays.|
But this week, I got in a lot of speedy miles. Out of 25 miles this week, 11 were at a 6-7 pace. I was pissed at my mental weakness in the 5K tuneup race I ran on Sunday, and I knew it was wrong when I was doing those extra fast miles. But I pressed on. I am so lucky I didn't injury myself!
Week 6 (10/6-10/14): 25.7 miles
Saturday (10/6): Taking it easy before the Girl Scouts 5K. Ran 3.5 miles through Del Mar. Played an hour of tennis.
Sunday (10/7): Tune up race! I ran the Girl Scouts New Day 5K. Results: 20:33, 1st in age group, 3rd female overall. Then I ran 6 miles slow in Mission Bay.
Monday (10/8): 4 x 1 mile at 6:48 (treadmilling it); yoga.
Tuesday (10/9): core workout.
Wednesday (10/10): Speed workout on treadmill. 9 x 0.5 miles at 6:27. Temping the speed gods last week, I mocked them by saying my speed workouts are barely challenging. And I was struck down. Although I easily completed the 9 intervals, the next day my legs were DEAD.
Thursday (10/11): Legs/plyo. Jumping with DEAD legs made for an interesting plyo workout . . . mostly stuck to weights.
Friday (10/12): Rest day.
