Training recap week of 11/18 (Dopey Week 11)

Hey everyone!  Happy Thanksgiving Week!  Sorry for the little bit of a break, work has gotten crazy and I won't lie... I'm constantly exhausted from training and have definitely been going to bed earlier rather then staying up writing.  Hope you all had a great week!

This past week was definitely a rough one - longest run in a long time and longest back to backs ever.  It did not help that it was 18 degrees on Sunday with a "real feel" of 5, and 20+ MPH winds for my 18 mile run.  But I did it and I'm pleased with my pace.  Only 2 long run weekends to go!  Holy cow!

This upcoming week I am going to be changing my schedule a bit.  I have 2 races while I am home (a 5K Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning and a 5 miler on Sunday) so I am going to be breaking my 8 mile tempo run into those 2 races.  I know it's not the same as doing 1 8 mile run, but I know I won't be able to stop myself from racing both, so I might as well use them as a tempo.

Scheduled: Rest or Cross Training
Actual: 35 minutes on the elliptical + Core Work

I have really been slacking in the cross training department and it felt good to get out there.  I also have been trying to add more core work.  I know it will help in the long run!

Scheduled: 5 miles easy pace (10:09 - 11:09)
Actual: 5.00 miles, 51:25, 10:17 pace

Scheduled: 8 miles easy pace (10:09 - 11:09)
Actual: 8.00 miles, 1:24:52, 10:36 pace

Scheduled: Rest
Actual: Rest 

Scheduled: 3 miles easy pace (10:09 - 11:09)
Actual: 3.00 miles, 30:24, 10:08 pace

It was so nice here on Friday, I was able to run in shorts and a t-shirt!  What a change to Sunday...

Scheduled: 8 miles long run pace (9:54 - 10:29)
Actual: 8.00 miles, 1:18:57, 9:52 pace

Scheduled: 18 miles long run pace (9:54 - 10:29)
Actual: 18.00 miles, 2:54:27, 9:41 pace

Brrrrrrr.... that's all I have to say about this run.

Total miles: 42.01
Total November miles: 117.61
