midweek roundup

Geez...I feel like Jessica, writing about three or four runs at once.

Sunday evening I went out for an 8-miler. A relatively slow one, just trying to recover a little from Saturday's race.
I started out slow and planned on maintaining a slow pace until picking it up the last two miles.

Pedro says:
mile 1 - 7:38
mile 2 - 7:36
mile 3 - 7:49
mile 4 - 7:37
mile 5 - 7:44
mile 6 - 7:27
mile 7 - 6:51
mile 8 - 7:05

8 miles, 59:51, 7:28 pace, 896 calories

Monday's run was short, just 4 miles. Ran really slow. No stats from Pedro on that one.

No run on Tuesday

Track today.
Ran 5 quarters and did 7 30/30s.
I assumed I did the 30/30s right. I don't know. I ran hard for 30 seconds, backed off a little for 30, etc... Actually I did 6 1/2 of them, since I did a very, very slow last 30 seconds with Ashton.
The quarters were a lot slower than I'm used to doing. I'm blaming it on a big lunch of Mexican food, which I felt frequently while I was running.
The stats on the quarter miles:
1 - 1:35
2 - 1:28
3 - 1:26
4 - 1:23
5 - 1:25
The 30/30s added up to .99 miles in 6:30. If I'd noticed I was off .01 from a mile I would've ran it. Geez...
After that I ran the stands at the stadium for 5 minutes. I'm sure I'll feel that tomorrow morning. UGH!!!
