Yes...I ran last week!

Just in case someone is wondering, I did run last week. Though it was tougher than I thought it would be as I was on vacation and not even leaving town.....it was a work at home vacation, so not really one at all.

As a matter of a fact, I became quite lame from all the stuff I did around the house and almost.....I said almost would rather had been at work...but not really..I enjoyed the week. I wish I had more time, it seemed about two days long total.

I planned on getting a short run in each day and a couple good training runs besides. As it turns out, it didn't happen that way.

Pineland trail run (90% race pace 25k)
Garmen only measured 14.5 miles @ 2:39:20 (11:00 pace)
Hill run on tread mill@10% grade 3.1 miles (41:59)
Hill repeats (finally)
1.7 mile warmup run to the hill 15:59@9:25pace

5 X 1/4 mile repeats at appr 16 degree grade (1 mile recovery back down the hill)
10:53 pace
11:16 pace
10:42 pace
10:27 pace
10:09 pace

1.87 mile cooldown run return from hill 18:21@9:49 pace


planned double run at backbay
turned into tempo/race pace 3.66 mile run with 1 mile cooldown walk
(6:33 kick)

Between the running, I was carrying, hauling,dragging and sweating (a pretty intense workout)

great training week given you were vacationing at home. That can make it hard to get motivated
