Monday 7/15- 10 miles in just under 66 minutes. This pace is feeling fairly comfortable for me. My strength is there and now I just have to hone my speed endurance.
Tuesday 7/16- 7 miles in a pretty typical 50 minutes before work.
Wednesday 7/17- Solid 8 miles on the trails with Jason. Pushed the hills and felt good.
Thursday 7/18- An easy 6, my butt is a little sore from the overall mileage and the uphills on the trails. Will watch carefully!
Friday 7/19- 10 miles in just over 70. It is hard to get in 10 within Laramie, I ran around most of the town!
Saturday 7/20- Miserable 3 mile warm up, hit mile 1 in 8:40. Race went well. They were supposed to run the 10k then the 5k but they switched them so I didn't get through the whole pre-race routine. Felt sluggish out of the gate. Hit the first mile in 5:52 on my way to 16:57. I think the first mile was long but the course measured acurrately on gmaps. Results Here. Ran a 4 mile cool down nice and easy.
Sunday 7/21- I end up taking Sundays off accidently but usually do something active. Last Sunday, I hiked about 10 miles in the Snowy Range including a summit of Medicine Bow Peak. Today I mountain biked for over an hour with Danielle. Next Sunday I probably won't run either as I will be summiting my first 14er- Long's Peak.
51 miles in 6 days is pretty solid! Looking forward to the coming weeks!
