I cannot believe that I just completed week 6 of the training program. Wow, I feel kind of accomplished. Only 10 weeks to go.
2 mile easy run at 10:58 minutes/mile. I ran this at an easy going pace of 9:25 minutes/mile and finished in 18:54.
7 mile speed work workout. 1 mile warm up, 3×1600 in 8:51 with 800 jogs, 1 mile cool down. I completed this day on the dread mill and finished in 1:08:30.
2 mile easy run at 10:58 minutes/mile. Ran a comfortable average pace of 10:49 minutes/mile and finished in 21:39.
9 mile long run at 10:58 minutes/mile. This was a nice long run. This is the furthest I have ever ran. It was really amazing. My body is surprising me every time I hit the pavement. I ran a totally different route in the city of Benton, that was a mistake. I finished in 1:39:04, that is an average pace of 11:00 minutes/mile, 2 seconds shy of my proposed pace. I will do better next week.
I also rode 33 miles on my mountain bike. I love that little sucker, but I still love running more.
