I ran 17 mi on Saturday, which was my longest run since April. Although my legs felt tired from my VO2max test the day before and there was a slight uphill on the way out, I felt pretty good throughout most of the run. Later this week, I'll be running 17 mi again, but this time it'll be during Hood to Coast and my 17 mi will spread out over 3 legs of 4 mi, 7 mi, and 6 mi during about a 30 hour period.
Monday: 6 mi (7:55 pace w/ 2 mi @ 7:36)
4 mi w/ Tracy @ Olentangy bike path (walked/jogged; 12:30 pace)
Tuesday: 30 min elliptical; lifted total body
Wednesday: taught 45 min spinning
Thursday: 5 mi (8:15 pace); lifted upper body
taught 50 min spinning
*did fitness testing @ work (VO2max, sit & reach, push ups, sit ups, etc.); more details to come!
Saturday: 17 mi on Greenway Trail in Leetonia, OH (8:33 average pace; ran 9 mi by myself in 8:12 pace & 8 mi w/ Todd in 8:58 pace)
Sunday: taught 20 min core & taught 50 min spinning
TOTAL: 30 mi
