Good running week

by on Dec.30, 2011, under Training Runs

I’ve gotten 4 quality runs in this week.  I’ve really enjoyed my running friends this week.  Two days in a row I absolutely did NOT want to get out of bed and run and would not have run along but ended up with a great tempo run and a nice 9 mile mystery run today as a result.

Yesterday’s tempo run was a real encouragement for Houston.  I need a 7:38 average pace to get under 1:40, something I’m not sure I can do but am going to go for it.  Secondary goal is every mile under 8 minute pace.  Here is the Garmin report that shows a warm up, tempo, Bainbridge Hill and a nice finish.

We did a Friday mystery run where we didn’t know where we were going or how far or how fast.  Left out of the fitness center, up to the golf course, ran the cart paths for awhile, out back onto the roads and finished with 9.2 miles.  I didn’t have my Garmin but pace was average and fun.  I’ll run easy and then do 15 on Sunday as my last long run before the Houston half (in two weeks).  That will give me 52 miles for the week which is nice.  Great way to finish out 2011.
