Training recap week of 11/25 (Dopey Week 12)

This week marked a pretty big milestone in my training - we are officially 2/3's of the way through.  Wow.  Only 6 weeks to go.  I cannot believe it.  It's getting a little closer every day.  December is a tough month with work events, so my goal for the next couple of weeks is to get my runs in and keep my eating in check.

This past week I made some changes to my schedule to accommodate my 2 races.  I had planned on doing those in place of my tempo runs, but unless I used someone else's tempo pace, they were way faster then they should have been.  But, it was nice to get a feel for how my speed is coming along.

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

Scheduled: 5 miles easy pace (10:09 - 11:09)
Actual: 5.00 miles, 53:41, 10:43 pace

I had to do this one on a treadmill and it reminded me of how much I HATE treadmills.  Brutal.

Scheduled: 5 miles easy pace (10:09 - 11:09)
Actual: 5.00 miles, 51:33, 10:21 pace

Another run on the treadmill.  Went better then Tuesday's run, so I am thankful for that.

Scheduled: 5K Tempo pace (9:09)
Actual: 3.11 miles, 25:07, 8:05 pace 

Scheduled: Rest
Actual: Rest

Scheduled: 12 miles long run pace (9:54 - 10:29)
Actual: 12.00 miles, 1:57:03, 9:45 pace

Scheduled: 5 miles tempo pace (9:09)
Actual: 4.99 miles, 39:21, 7:53 pace

A little sore from this one, but so proud of this race!
