Hamptons Marathon Training – Week 13

Sunday 8/10
15.5 evening mi @9:50

Although this really should have been done on Saturday, the miles got in and I have to be happy about that. Overall it felt good. Another warm day, but we set out late afternoon/early evening (late enough for it to get pretty dark for the last 3 mi or so :-/), Camelbak’ed it and lived to tell the story 🙂

Monday 8/11
Rest

Tuesday 8/12
6 mi @ 9:25

Warm but it felt good to turn the legs over after Sunday.

Wednesday 8/13
Rest

Thursday 8/14
7 mi @ 9:08

Cool and wonderful evening miles. It’s incredible what a few degrees will do to your legs and lungs and everything else!

Friday 8/15
Rest

Saturday 8/16
12.5 mi @ 8:53

I don’t know what the hell I was thinking! Well, wait, I kind of do. It was early and cool and beautiful out and I decided to see what stupid fast cutback run I could crank out. And there you have it. Never mind that I proceeded to shuffle around the rest of the day like an elderly person wondering when my decision-making privileges were going to be officially revoked.

Total:  41 miles
Thank god! My first “normal” week in ages! And for the most part I didn’t feel terrible. 🙂 Ironically this is supposed to be a cutback week, but I’ve supplemented in enough of those over the last month that it’s a damn good this week did have some reasonable numbers up next to it. Now the trick will be to build on this for the final few long weeks!
