The BIG news for this week is...of course....I ran my FIRST MARATHON.
Race report came out earlier today, titled "RNR DC Marathon" with the label "Race Report"
To save you some time, I completed the race in 3:23:06. See the RNR DC Race Report published earlier today.
Other than the race......
This week is ALL taper, except a final MP workout on Monday.....
Monday Workout - Assignment is 8 miles: 1 wu; 2@MP; 1@ HMP;
3@MP; 1 cd. I did the workout on the WOD in the Herndon area -
which is NOT flat - and the same route as last week's similar workout.
I averaged 6:41 over the MP miles, and 6:21 for the HMP mile (slight downhill). So, I'm still running slightly too fast....but feeling kinda springy and ready to go!
Weekly mileage: 48 (+ 6 mi. walking over two separate days)
Long Run: 26.3 miles - RNR DC Marathon
Monday - 8 miles on WOD. 2@MP; 1@ HMP; 3@MP. MP avg = 6:41; HMP mile was 6:21 Overall pace was 6:51.. Rolling and stretching
45' E w/strides
Wednesday - OFF COMPLETELY
10 - 15 min jog, couple strides, 10 min cool down..
Saturday - 1 x 26.3 @ MP. 3:23:16. Complete bonk / cramp lock up on mile 23. See separate RNR DC Race Report.
Sunday - Yah...I can barely walk.
That is all. Carry on.....
