This was my last week of plan-free running before marathon training gets under way. I definitely took advantage of that.
It was a rough week, with illness on Monday and recovery on Tuesday, then some other stressful situations going on. I ended up running three times, but it only amounted to 10 miles for the week.
Wednesday, Ran 1 mile/9:10 pace
After two days of nothing, I wanted to do *something* but didn’t have the energy to go out for longer than a mile.
Saturday, Ran 3 miles/9:24 pace
I did this one around 5 after getting done at the animal shelter for the day. I was surprised that I kept up the pace after such a long day.
Sunday, Ran 6 miles/10:17 pace
Ran before church for the third week in a row. I’m always really happy to get this done first thing, rather than have it hanging over my head in the afternoon.
I fueled with some StrideBox samples. While I enjoyed the Glukos drink mix, the watermelon flavor of the Sports Beans wasn’t my favorite.
