In what seems to be the case every time I go for my Sunday run - the wind, rain, and slick (very) muddy trails were all present. Today's "long" run was increased to 11-miles (up from 10 last week) Started off conservatively - if my legs were a little tired before yesterday's workout, they'd certainly be tired today, and this was indeed the case.
Of course tomorrow's my off day so I didn't want to just mail this one in. I can rest up tomorrow. First half averaged about 7:08, second half averaged about 6:48.
This closed the week out at 42-miles, which is my first 40+ week since November. Average pace for the week came in at 6:42 (of course the workouts certainly help w/ that) Not counting the workouts, the average was 6:55 and that seems to be a good steady pace for me these days.
Plans for next week aren't finalized yet as the weather is going to play a big factor, but I'm hoping to log 40-44 miles again w/ two workouts and a 12-mile long run.
Sun, 3/1: 11-miles @ 6:58 pace
