Race week, not mine by Becca’s Ironman Arizona! I was off from Wednesday onwards with a view to getting us squared away so we could get out of town Thursday night.
I shuffled things around to to fit in ‘cos that’s what you do.
Monday; 5 miles. Nice and easy, a bit slugish. Very bloated from bad coffee.
Tuesday; 8 miles. easy warm up and cool down and a quick 6 in the middle
Wednesday; 7 miles. Got my ass handed to me on the local trail!
Thursday; off. Drove out to Palm Desert, nearly halfway to Tempe
Friday; 5 miles, easy 5 mile on the Treadmill
Saturday; 14 miles, nice and steady. I have been focused on my split’s, on being consistent and maintaining a steady sustainable pace and that’s bearing fruit on these medium runs. I am taking great pleasure in reciting them to Becca on my return from each run!
So 5.46 and 39.24 miles for the week. It was a rest week!
I’ll have a write up on IMAZ next!
