NYC Marathon Training — Week 10

August mileage = highest monthly mileage for me ever!

Day 2, Tuesday, September 1st: 4 miles

Zapped that zero on my first run of September!

Workout summary: ran 4.01 miles; avg 11:34/mile; 11:52 / 11:32 / 11:45 / 11:08.

Day 3, Wednesday, September 2nd: 8 miles

So, I reeeeeally don’t like running in the dark, but I had a meeting at 9 AM and the temps are just too hot for 8 miles after work . . . I sucked it up, and ran super early in the dark. I ran my favorite 5 mile loop by our house, stopped for Gatorade at home, and then went out for the last 3 miles. I am still laughing about this autocorrect mishap, so thought I would share! 🙂

Got it done! And with a decent pace for myself!

Workout summary: ran 8.01 miles; avg 11:18/mile; 12:07 / 11:29 / 11:19 / 11:14 / 11:09 / 11:25 / 11:04 / 10:28.

Day 4, Thursday, September 3rd: 4 miles

I never really have much to say about my Thursday runs . . . I’ll take that as a good thing. A run without craziness like my friend Layla says!

Workout summary: ran 4.03 miles; avg 10:49/mile; 11:19 / 10:47 / 10:48 / 10:25.

Day 6, Saturday, September 5: 17 miles

Saturdays are typically a shorter long run, sometimes at race pace . . . but with our plans to attend the OU game, I decided it would be better to just knock out those long miles! We had a crew up at Lake Hefner, and so pleased with the results!

Anjesh, Katie, and I after I finished my 17 miles! Fun to see water at Lake Hefner and VERY thankful for these friends to join me for the later miles to keep me moving!
Our crazy crew! Special congrats to Stephanie for her longest run ever…20 miles!!!
Birthday brunch for the best SAG wagon ever! 🙂 Classen Grill with our running buddies!

Workout summary: ran 17.02 miles; avg 11:30/mile; 11:46 / 11:28 / 11:42 / 11:15 / 11:06 / 11:40 / 11:31 / 11:45 / 12:05 / 11:21 / 12:09 / 11:13 / 11:15 / 11:08 / 11:15 / 11:35 / 11:19.

Day 7, Sunday, September 6: 8 3 miles

Saturday was supposed to be 8 at race pace followed by 17 today. As I mentioned earlier I planned to swap the two runs. Well after yesterday’s run, walking over 4 miles as a part of game day, and being out in the heat. . . I decided to compromise. David was kind enough to drag me along for a 5k around home. It wasn’t race pace, it wasn’t my expected mileage, but I listened to my body, had great company, and we had popsicles after together! 🙂

Workout summary: ran 3.1 miles; avg 12:14/mile; 12:11 / 12:23 / 12:08 / 11:51 for .1.

    I’m playing blog catch-up, and there’s my name! I LOVE that autocorrect — getting drunk at 6:16 on a Wednesday morning! LOL!

        I no longer run after drinking alcohol… That mixed with uneven concrete and an almost dead headlamp battery equal dental bills.
