This week was awesome. I got more miles in, and they were good ones at that. It's good to be really back to running.
Here's the breakdown:
Monday was my last non-Friday rest day before jumping into my half marathon training plan.
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday were all about the same pace (9:00, 9:02, 9:14). Thursday was a bit slower with the same expended effort, so I think my legs were just pushing out the last bit of recovery needed. I'm excited to be back to running regularly! I missed it for the last two weeks.
Fridays are now going to be my only rest days, so I know I'll always have Friday to come home from work, crash on the couch, and relax.
Saturday was a great day! It was the Best Damn Race 10k. The recap will come this week, but the weather was perfect, the course was beautiful, and I met up with some girlfriends there. I PR'ed by a little over 2 minutes and ran the 10k in 53:10.

Sunday I was surprised to find a 9 mile long run on my training plan when I first received it, but you know me and training plans. If it's there I'm going to do it. It worked out well because Kat also had a long run to get in on Sunday after her Warrior Dash, so we met up on Davis Island to run there and Bayshore. Another friend of hers also came, and we had a lot of fun running and chit chatting! We ran nine miles in 1:24:56, right around a 9:25 pace.
I can't complain about two perfect weather, great paced runs in one weekend!
This week I start my first speed workout. I'm excited!
