This week was not my best - overall. I got some really quality runs for speedwork and long, but definitely struggled through some of the runs. Since it was my last week at work, I had more outings/drinks/dinners then I planned and they interfered with my running. We were out until 1:30am on Wednesday night! I was dying on Thursday (to say the least).
Really proud of my speedwork this week if nothing else!
I also added some cross training in - workouts from LaurenGleisberg.com. They were good workouts and I was definitely a bit sore after them!
Cross Training: Lauren Gleisberg - Booty Challenge workout
Scheduled: Speedwork - 4 x 1 mile repeats @ 7:50-7:55 pace plus warm up + cool down
Actual: 7.4 mi total
Paces: 7:54, 7:53. 7:51, 7:46
Cross Training: Lauren Gleisberg - Booty Challenge Arms workout
Scheduled: 6 miles easy pace, 9:20-9:50
Actual: 4.5 mi, 42:36, 9:28 pace
Scheduled: 7 miles easy pace
Actual: 3.13 mi, 31:19, 10:01 pace
Considering how exhausted I was (and slightly hungover), I am pretty proud I got any of this run done!
Scheduled: 14 miles long run- 4 miles long run pace (9:20-10:20), 6 miles goal marathon pace (GMP = 8:23-8:25), 4 miles long run pace (9:20-10:20)

GMP paces: 9:20, 8:50, 8:35, 8:26, 8:31, 8:12
I did not plan this run properly - my first 2.5 miles at GMP were up a massive hill (and my pace clearly reflected that). They weren't quite were I want to be, but I am pretty pleased with how I am progressing.
Scheduled: 6 miles easy pace
Actual: 6.0 mi, 57:40, 9:36 pace
