Week 7: Inspiration!

I watched Meb tear up Central Park Sunday morning and then I got the chance to run my first 22-mile long run under a beautiful deep blue sky in nice cool, dry air. You'd have to be dead to not be inspired.

75¾ miles for Week 7 (October 26th to November 1st)

M AM - 5¾ miles recovery run at 8:45 pace, 78°F at 4AM
M PM - missed
Tu - 7¾ miles general aerobic at 7:25 pace, 56°F at 4AM but not feeling very good (blew off a planned tempo run)
W AM - 10 miles general aerobic at 7:24 pace, 70°F at 4AM
W PM - 6 miles on the track, average pace 7:24, 80°F and very humid at 7PM, added another 1¼ miles to pick up a car
Th AM - 4 miles recovery run at 8:44 pace, 81°F at 4AM, just before I went out to run I heard a noise in the garage and found the hose to the washing machine spraying water into a flooded garage
Th PM - missed (replaced the washing machine hoses and valves)
F - 10 miles general aerobic at 7:27 pace, heavy rain and deep puddles, but a nice cool 57°F at 4AM
Sa - 9 miles easy at 7:38 pace, 69°F at Noon, very nice and sunny!
Su - 22 miles averaging 7:38 pace, very nice and sunny, 71 to 72°F from 11:30AM with the dewpoint in hte upper 40s!

I'm hoping this inspiration and nice weather will carry over to Sunday's 25K race.
I still need a new pair of shoes.
