Weekly Recap: August 23-29

I started off the week with an awesome track workout & I actually ran faster for all my splits than I thought I could. I ran easy on Tuesday in preparation for Hood to Coast at the end of the week. I averaged 7:50 pace for my 17 mi during HTC and was very happy with how I did considering it was all hills, I never ran on flat ground. I'll have an official Hood to Coast Race Report later in the week along with a recap. Despite only getting 2 hours of sleep in the 27 hours it took our team to run 197 miles, I would do it again in a heart beat.

Monday: 6 mi; track workout (1 mi warm up, 6 x 800 w/ easy 400 jog, 0.5 mi cooldown; ran 800s b/w 3:21-3:29)

Tuesday: 4 mi (8:15 pace); lifted total body & core

Wednesday: 1 hr TRX suspension circuit at PAI Yoga & Fitness

Thursday: REST (travel day to Portland)

Friday: Hood to Coast: 3.93 mi, easy, downhill @ 2:30 PM in 27:30 (7:04 pace)

Saturday: Hood to Coast: 7.25 mi, hard, rolling hills @ midnight in 57:53 (7:59 pace)
Hood to Coast: 5.97 mi, medium, rolling hills @ 8:30 AM in 48:08 (8:04 pace)

Sunday: REST (legs dead from HTC)


TOTAL: 27 mi
