I managed to talk myself into mile repeats on Thursday morning, but I only ended up doing 2 since my legs were STILL sore. I was able to hit 5:45 for the repeats, so I was happy with that part. Her's the breakdown of the week:
- Saturday - 12 miles easy
- Sunday - Potomac Heritage 50K in 4:58
- Monday - 7 miles easy
- Tuesday - 10 miles easy
- Wednesday - 12 miles easy
- Thursday - 7 miles w/ 2 x 1mi @ 5:45
- Friday - 6 miles easy
- Total - 85 miles
I ended up running 85 miles for the week but was pretty tired by the end. I took an unscheduled off day on Saturday to give my legs a bit of time to recover.
Jen and I also helped out at the Brooks section of the Marine Corp Marathon expo. We were there with a bunch of other people in the Brooks ID program, and we had a great time meeting everyone. There were a lot of fast marathoners and some ultramarathoners as well. The people who work for Brooks were also awesome. They gave us a lot of free gear for volunteering our time, so Jen and I made out pretty well.
Hopefully I'll be able to get my legs back next week and get in some more hard runs before Philly. Wish me luck!
