Training recap week of 10/14 (Dopey Week 6)

Well, week 6 has come and gone and with it, I am 1/3 of the way through my training.  I still have 12 weeks to go, which sounds like a long time, but I know it is going to fly by.  I can't believe how quickly it is going.  It seemed so far away for a while!

Last week I discussed needing to adjust my paces.  I have upped them this week, but more importantly I am trying to run based on feeling.  Since this race isn't about time, I want to be comfortable.  I do have paces I am going to try and hit because I don't want to push it too hard, but I am also just going to run and feel good on the run.  Some weeks might be slower, some weeks might be faster.  All part of the training moving forward.

Scheduled: Rest or Cross Training
Actual: Rest

Scheduled: 3 miles easy pace (10:09 - 11:09)
Actual: 3.00 miles, 30:56, 10:18 pace

Scheduled: 6 mile tempo pace (9:09ish)
Actual: 7 miles total, 1:05:43
Paces: 9:23, 9:22, 9:04, 9:04, 9:11, 9:17

Scheduled: 3 miles easy pace (10:09 - 11:09)
Actual: 3.13 miles, 32:35, 10:24 pace

Scheduled: Rest 
Actual: Rest

Scheduled: 6 miles long run pace (9:54)
Actual: 7.29 miles, 1:12:55, 10:01 pace

Scheduled: 16 miles long run pace (9:54)
Actual: 16 miles. 2:35:17, 9:42 pace

So, yea.. I tried my new "run comfortable" theory out on my 16 mile long run on Sunday.  And I ended up with a 9:42 average pace.  The last couple of miles were tough and I am thinking as the Saturday runs get longer, the average pace on Sundays will slow.  But given this training season who knows!

Total miles: 36.42
Total October miles: 94.13

Hope you all had great training weeks!
