- A crazy, looping run in similar conditions with Karen and Jon
- A short, fun run in below zero temps with Jon
- A sloggy early morning run when even Jon called me "nuts" early this spring
This week will be little more of a challenge because I am in Texas until Wednesday evening where the weather is supposed to be in the 90's with unbearable humidity. And this might be the toughest week on the Pfitz 18/55 plan. In particular I am dreading the 11 miler with 7 @ half to 15K pace. Yikes. Fortunately I'll be 6K (yes six thousand!) feet lower in elevation when I attempt it. According to the altitude adjustment calculator, that should be a 25 second per mile benefit.
I am just shy of 2000 miles running for the year and 150,000 feet of vertical gain, but I still feel strong!
|Tuesday||8||GA miles to start my running week|
|Wednesday||8||with 5 x 800: 6:22, 6:18, 6:15, 6:18, 6:30 (crashed on the last one)|
|Saturday||14||Slogging through the snow|
|Sunday||8||Somewhere between GA and MP pace.|
|Total||43||About 2700 vertical feet gained*|
