Monday – 3 easy miles in the neighborhood. I felt pretty good and was able to run faster than I have recently with little effort. Average pace: 10:31
Tuesday – 6.5 easy miles around Nashua – sunny 79* – 6pm – average pace: 10:53
Wednesday – 1 hour yoga class
Thursday – 5 miles with mid 3 @ tempo – avg. 9:25 felt hard (9:11 not quite) with 1 mile w/u and 1 mile c/d on NRRT – average pace: 9:58
friday – I decided to bail on my easy 3 miles today because my right shin was hurting me and my long run was on Saturday. This was my first missed run but I think it was the right decision for me because I had no pain on my long run.
Saturday – long run – Brian dropped me off at the end of the Cape Cod Rail Trail in Wellfleet near our campground. I ran 15.2 miles at an average pace of 11:45 and managed a negative split for my second half. I wore my Saucony and Sof Sole socks and hydrated using my pack and fueled with gels and Sport Beans. I had no issues but was tired by the end. The trail was relatively flT but exposed to the sun with little shade.
Sunday – Rest Day – travelled home from Cape Cod
Total weekly mileage – 29.7 miles
