I hit an all time mileage PR last week. 64 miles!
Sunday 18: 4.6 easy recovery miles before the saints game. Alone and it was hot.
Monday 19: 7 miles @ LARUNCO.
Tuesday 20: 8.4 miles in the morning with 3×10 minutes on (supposed to be 4, but I felt terrible). 5 miles in the pm nice and easy.
Wed 21: 4.2 miles very easily in the morning. Dixie came for a bit. Tired. 10 miles in the pm at LARUNCO with Poboy and the owner of the candy bar. I became very tire during the last two miles of this run.
Thursday 22: 6.8 miles. It was the bosses b-day today so we had cake after run group and it was delicious.
Friday 23: 5 miles adventure run with a group of fellows. This run would have been more fun if I hadn’t been so tired.
Saturday 24: 13 miles with 8 miles at MP (avg 645). The tempo was long and boring. This run made me very tired for the rest of the day.
This week I plan to hit as close to 60 as possible.
In other running related news, the world record was broken for the marathon. 2:03:38. If anything this run validates that the Boston times were not so off base. It will be very interesting to see how long it takes for someone to break 2:03. Too bad the women have been set back in our marathon world record because the IAAF decided that women can no longer set records in races with men. I have been annoyed with this ruling all week. Taking away Deena’s AR and Paula’s WR record is cruel. I feel so sorry for these women.
Small Rant. it is still hot and humid. A break in the weather would be wonderful. Every year around this time I become disgusted by the weather. I have had enough of summer and want it to cool off already.
One last thing, GEAUX TIGERS!
4 and 0 baby!
