... can't trust that day.
We all know Daily Mile thinks the week starts on a Monday, even though my good sense tells me Sunday is the start of the week. But since DM keeps track of my miles, I guess I'll consider Sunday as the end of the running week. Thus... my week in review.
2 mile run
A quick warm up before an NROLFW session.
2 miles/ 19:00 / 9:30 pace
6 mile run
I took advantage of the gorgeous weather for an afternoon run. I also laughed my face off giving Crazy Face cooked spaghetti noodles. Hooray for ditching the e-collar!
6 miles / 56:20 / 9:22 pace
Cold, rainy weather chased me right to the gym. Maybe it was something about the treadmill that inspired my vegetarian/clean eating post?
5 miles /47:34 / 9:22 pace
...hooray for a twofer! In the morning I busted out a little run. I sat on my butt all day and then ran the trails in the dark with my new running group. It didn't matter that I was tired and wanted to walk, unless I wanted to spend the night out there I had to keep up!
7.38 miles / 1:05:52 / 8:55 pace
6 miles / 59:06 / 9:55 pace
Drove up to B.F.E. Salisbury for a rainy 8k race that turned out to be as good as puppies and rainbows!
5 miles / 42:38 / 8:30 pace
I'll admit it, I just wanted to see my DM ticker hit 40 miles for the week, so I went out for 7 miles. In all seriousness, it was better than puppies and rainbows- I felt like I could run forever. Best.Feeling.Ever.
7 miles /1:04:15 / 9:11 pace
Total miles: 40!!
I must admit, it's somewhat surreal to see my pace for all my runs in the 9's, a few even in the 8's! It still feels like my paces are a fluke, like I just had some really good runs and I'll go out tomorrow and be back to my 'normal' pace.
Maybe it's time I move on from calling myself a slow runner, but I'm certainly not ready to call myself fast. Is there such thing as a moderato runner?
How was your training week?
How do you label yourself?
Can you name that song?
