Last week saw no action at the pool, the water temps had been a little too cold for my taste for the two weeks previous to last week so when I called to reserve a lane and they referred to the water as "brisk" I knew that couldn't be good. By the weekend the staff there had assured me they've got it back to normal so I'll test it out tomorrow. I also missed out on my regular spin class last Monday due to having a tempo run that same day and me not planning well.
All in all, not a horrific week. And also the first week where I varied my pace quite a bit to fit the plan.
Monday - ran 6 miles (4@ tempo pace)
Tuesday - ran 4.3 miles (EZ)
Wednesday - ran 8 miles @8:30 pace
Thursday - ran 4 miles (EZ), strength training for 45 mins
Friday - rest
Saturday - ran 6 miles (5 x Hippo Park hill repeats), 90 mins of yoga
Sunday - ran 10.5 miles
Scheduled mileage: 40
Actual mileage: 38.8
Yesterday ending up being a pretty packed day. I slept in a bit, got my run in and then headed up to Matt & Kelly's for the return of Sunday Family Dinners. Kelly made a super tasty tortilla soup, we enjoyed some Chimay & Brooklyn Local 1 and rounded it out with fresh blueberries and strawberries over angel food cake. The night ended with an impromptu visit to Stand Up NY, a local spot on the UWS where Jason, Matt, Joey and I caught Judah Friedlander's act. You will know him as Frank from 30 Rock. Very funny!
