Skipping Out

I didn't run today like I should have. I had a Roots & Shoots activity planned for the kiddos at 10:30 and just didn't feel like doing a hard run beforehand. The temps the remainder of the day were certainly too high (high 80s/low 90s) to warrant a run. I have a 15K race slated for this Saturday so I figured that would take the place of today's tempo run. I'll try to run the 15K similiarly to what I would have done during the tempo training run, but with slight modification for race conditions.

3.0 miles at goal pace 8:30
2.0 miles at tempo pace 8:00
3.0 miles at goal pace 8:30
1.4 miles at cruise pace 7:30

This should put me at about 1hr 19min to finish. We'll see how it goes.

In the end, my week should work out something like:

Mon - Swim (~4.5 miles running)
Tue - Rest
Wed - Run 8 miles (2x1mile C, 4x800 SI, 2x1mile C)
Thr - Rest
Fri - Swim (~4.5 miles running)
Sat - Run/Race 9.4 miles
Sun - Long Run 13.5 miles
Total = ~40 miles


  1. Have a great race. Hopefully not to hot and thunderous!

  2. That would be one heck of a run! You have a race today! Woo hoo! Can't wait to hear about it.
