My Last Really Tough Week

88¼ for the week

M AM – 6¾ Miles recovery run at 8:53 mpm average pace, 67*F at 4AM
M PM – missed 4 mile recovery run
Tu AM – 6¾ recovery 8:16 mpm 64*F at 4AM
Tu PM – 5½ recovery 8:27 mpm 65*F at 9PM
W AM – 7¼ with some pretty hard miles, overall average pace 6:50 mpm, warm and humid 68*F at 4AM
W PM – 6 average pace 7:54 with 4x800/400rec, last 800 at 2:38, 62*F at 7PM and still cooling down
Th AM - 15 Medium Long Run 7:08 mpm with the last 4 to 5 miles in the 6:30s, 63*F from 1PM. I was caught in some pretty heavy rain during most of this run
Th PM - missed 4 mile recovery run
F – 9 general aerobic at 6:54 mpm, I got a little carried away and finished up with several miles in the 6:30s, 64*F at 4PM sunny and nice
Sa – 10 recovery 8:26 mpm, 57*F at 10AM another sunny and nice day, I saw 6 other runners (a record for my running route) This was scheduled as 6 in the AM and 4 in the PM but I didn’t have time for that
Su – 22 at 7:14 mpm overall average, several of the last few miles in the 6:30s, 47*F from before 7AM windy and rainy. I saw no other runners out in the cold rain. It reminded me a little of this old Joan Benoit Nike commercial

This was a tough week with four scheduled doubles. I was pleasantly surprised by all of the miles in the 6:30s this week.

Dang, that's a lot of running. Nice job.
I added some more to my blog of who's running Houston. More is there than when you left a comment.
