Weekly training update

Last week was another great training week for me. I ended up just under my goal of 22 miles (21.75), but I'm comfortable with that distance - my last long week before I taper for my first race of 2014!

Sunday - pick-up soccer, 4.75 miles

Monday - off

Tuesday - 7 v 7 soccer, 1.93 miles. We tied this game 2-2. I think we could have done better, but our team spent a lot of time fighting amongst ourselves, which definitely didn't help our cause and one of our players sprained their ankle in the first half, so we played with just one sub for the rest of the game and people were definitely getting tired near the end.

Wednesday - 7 v 7 soccer, 2.37 miles. This was another tough fought game. We ended up losing 10-7, but I think it was a great game for our team. We were missing one of our forwards and spent a lot of time just trying to keep up with the other team who had a lot more speed than we did! 

Thursday - off 

Friday - off

Saturday - long run, 12.7 miles, 11:34 pace.
  • Mile 1 - 10:38
  • Mile 2 - 11:41
  • Mile 3 - 10:15
  • Mile 4 - 11:46
  • Mile 5 - 11:46
  • Mile 6 - 11:01
  • Mile 7 - 11:54
  • Mile 8 - 13:49 <-- this is where I got lost in the neighborhood and spent some time looking at my maps trying to figure out where to go before I ended up just turning around and heading back the way I came.
  • Mile 9 - 11:14
  • Mile 10 - 11:53
  • Mile 11 - 11:26
  • Mile 12 - 10:43
  • Last .7 - 11:56
How did your week go? Did you hit your goals?
