Saturday: Run 16 miles
Actual run - 16.0 miles at 10:31 pace. Was visiting Bill's mom and I hadn't slept well, was hot, hilly and sunny. Previous 16 this training cycle was 17 seconds faster. Counting this one as a win :) Body felt great after. Sure, I was dehydrated and ate everything I could find that night, but my biggest physical pain was the slight sunburn on the back of my knees. Not bad!
Sunday: Run 5 miles
Actual run - 3.6 miles. Still in Indiana, still hilly, but now windy as well. 3.25 was enough to break 40 for the week.
Monday: Strength workout (generally 5-6 miles)
Actual run - 3.0 miles speed workout on the TM. I think I tried to go too fast, and quit 2 repeats earlier than I had planned. Legs were SHOT!
