Training week six

This week is starting out right. Saturday I ran nice 14 mile run at a comfortable yet steady pace. I had a couple short recovery runs Sunday and Monday. Tuesday, tempo run of 10 miles in an 1hr 10min. Miles 2-4 in 14:20 and miles 4.25-7 @ a 7min pace. I felt strong through the end of the tempo sessions and finished the last few miles at marathon goal pace (8:10pace)or a little slower. Today was a easy 5 miles on the treadmill and upper body weight training.

Big Breakfast = Bad Run

Yesterdays seemed very long as I labored through the first 9 miles. I thought mile 10 was going to be better, it wasn't. I know better, however when your looking at the menu everything looks good. I was planning on having a poached egg, toast and fruit. In stead I had a three egg denver omelet, hash browns and toast. Oh yeah and a gallon of coffee. Live and learn.

10.75 miles. 8 min pace.
