NYC Marathon Training – Week 8

Day 2, Tuesday, August 18th: 4 miles

Caught a beautiful sunset instead of the sunrise for this run. Paid no attention to my watch and just took it easy!

Another evening run, and I thought the “cool” temperatures that arrived in Oklahoma would feel amazing . . . and it did not! But I tried a new route and I finished with a good pace!

Now the cool morning temps . . . AMAZING!

Day 6, Saturday, August 22nd: 7 miles

Motivation hasn’t come easy this week, and today I didn’t have any plans to meet anyone so I ended up sleeping in waaaaay too late. The highlight of my run was running by a Pride of Oklahoma rehearsal – I got my own pep rally for the middle of my run!  The weather was also crazy. It started out very hot, sunny, and humid. As you can see below, clouds moved in. I called David and he said only light showers were in the area. I could feel the cold air blowing in, but only felt sprinkles. By time I got to mile 6.5, the hot sun returned!

Workout summary: ran 7.02 miles; avg 11:08/mile; 11:12 / 11:04 / 11:08 / 11:32 / 10:58 / 11:08 / 10:52.

Day 7, Sunday, August 23rd: 15 miles

Well, today was not good for me. My motivation was low, and we started running around 8 AM to wait out storms in the area. The heat didn’t seem to really bother me overall, I just had a bad attitude. But, even though I shed some tears, I didn’t give up and got in all of my miles!

Workout summary: ran 15.01 miles; avg 12:11/mile; 11:58 / 11:18 / 11:15 / 12:32 / 12:54 / 13:19 / 12:14 / 11:18 / 12:01 / 12:14 / 12:19 / 11:45 / 12:46 / 12:07 / 12:36.
