Gettin' there...

Tuesday - July 29

Run
  • 31m 16s
  • 2.91 miles
  • 10m 44s /Mi

Probably should've taken a rest day but with a free birthday pass to take the morning off of kid duty I didn't want to pass it up. Took it very slow and easy on purpose but still felt very heavy and weak.

Monday - July 28

Bike
  • 55m 35s
  • 16.70 miles
  • 18.03 Mi/hr

Windy, low 70s, near race pace at times

Run
  • 19m 38s
  • 2.12 miles
  • 09m 15s /Mi

Bike-run brick

Didn't set out for race pace, just wanted to get a brick in.

Sunday - July 27

Run
  • 48m 10s
  • 5.15 miles
  • 09m 21s /Mi

Tempo run in cloudy/windy (even got rained on)

Saturday - July 26

Run
  • 2h 18m 47s
  • 12.15 miles
  • 11m 25s /Mi

Except for recovering from the cold, ideal conditions:

-Good night's sleep (slept in w/ no kids)
-Good breakfast (2 toast/banana) plus water
-Pretty good weather (partly sunny, mid 70s-low 80s)
-Good fuel (half gel every 1/2 hour, Payday, 16 oz water per hour)

Felt strong/good, no soreness, only mild GI discomfort last 1/2 mile

So why so slow? Illness? Training plateau? I know long runs are supposed to be slow, but THIS slow? I even retraced the route to make sure I hadn't lost count of side streets.

Coach Cindy says my upper body strength and form are solid but kick is so inefficient it's almost slowing me down. Small kicks from the hip to stabilize body.
