So here it is... the final week. I've been training for 15 weeks now. That's 633 miles to date, about 190 per month, and averaging 45 per week. There's been 3 pairs of shoes (2 were test pairs, one my regular Zoom Elite), one workup race, 6 runs of 15 miles or longer, and lots of repeat 1000m, 2000m, miles, 800m, 400m, and tempo runs.
Somewhere in that mix is a lot of peanut butter, chocolate milk, Enduralites, and H2O. I went in for my tune up massage... all I got to say is OUCH. Hopefully that will take all the knots and muscle tightness out so that I can be relaxed for next weekend.
Monday - Rest
Tuesday - 3x800/600/600 @ 2:55/2:10/2:10
Wednesday - an easy 6.5 @ 6:48 pace
Thursday - Nature Park 5.3 miles @ 7:20 pace
Friday - 6.5 miles @ 6:54 pace
Saturday - 5.6 miles up around the zoo with Aloha distance runners, very easy pace
Sunday - a casual 10.8 miles @ 7:30 pace
In 5 days I'm on my way...
Oh, and to cap off March Madness, I won the Nike pool I was in and took 2nd in the Aloha pool. Not a bad year...
