End of the Week Recap 3/21/10

Hail my running brothers and sisters!  This week I ran 26.73 miles at an average pace of 8:14/mile.  I managed to get in 30 minutes of cross-training/conditioning and topped the scales at 159 lbs even this morning.  Not exactly race weight but I can’t complain considering my less-than-spectacular mental crash on my long run yesterday.  The only two things significant about this week:  I did my first track workout and I couldn’t complete my long run.  The track workout went well and showed some promise for my marathon.  The long run was a complete disaster.  Fortunately for me, I still managed 26 miles this week.  So I’m chalking this week up to taper/rest/recovery, putting it behind me, and moving on to next week.

Next week is my official taper week for my 1/2 marathon in Knoxville.  I still need to get in my track workout, but otherwise I’ll just get in some easy base mileage before my race on Sunday.  I’ll be going up on Saturday, and I hope to catch a couple speakers at the expo.  If anyone in Knoxville wants to get together for some carbo-loading dinner, let me know and we’ll try to hook up.  All right that’s all I have, and if we don’t talk later, wish me luck!  Later kids!

Not a bad week. Not sure what you had difficulty on with the long run, but overall looked good.

Good luck next week.
