I don’t normally post my runs for the week because, well, I think it’s boring to you all. However, it does really help hold one accountable for their actions. I am hoping for slightly more mileage next week as this week my Wednesday MLR (medium long run) sucked butt. FYI non-runners, sucked butt is not really a technical running term.
Sunday: 4 miles (recovery run), average pace 9:50
Monday: 8 (hills) miles, average pace 9:20
Tuesday: 5 mile (recovery run), average 9:50
Wednesday: 4 miles (MLR, supposed to do 9) average pace 9:40
Thursday: 8 x 800’s, average pace 4:06 for each
On deck for Saturday: 22.5 miles @ 10:10 pace
I really am not too sure what happened on Wednesday. Oh wait, yes I am. I was tired. I was cranky. I had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day, just like Alexander. My heart wasn’t in it, my mind definitely wasn’t in it and I just wanted to go home and eat some worms. To make matters worse I thought I could carry my cell phone in my sports bra. I was expecting a call, you see. But apparently I am too sweaty to have electronic devises pushed up against me. I broke my phone with my sweat. Sexy.
Thursday’s speed work cheered me up as per usual and I am totally looking forward to the 22.5 miler tomorrow. The Redhead is coming to run with me and the BRA and I am super stoked for it!
We have big plans tonight, well as big a plans as we can have considering our early run start tomorrow. Coach EK lent us his DVD of the Chicago Marathon he and some BRA folks ran one year and I can’t wait to watch it with the Redhead to see her get EVEN more pumped (if that’s possible).
Have a great weekend all. Catch ya on the flip side of 22.5 miles!
goodluck on the 22 miler! kick butt 🙂
I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited!!!!! See you tonight with lots of goodies! 🙂
GOOD LUCK with your long one! I seriously cannot imagine running that much, but I know you'll do great. YOU GO GIRL!
Good luck on your long run!
🙁 sorry about the celly. That stinks.
22 miles. Oh.My.Gosh. I can't imagine that. I'm freaking out over my scheduled 9 miler. Of course it might take me as long to run 9 and it does for you to run 22. LOL
have a great weekend!
No good on the cell phone! 🙁
So… are you saying that my post today is boring??
*runs off and cries*
nice mileage. don't worry, i've ruined a phone of my own by running with it. enjoy those 22, i'm highly impressed, wooza.
Okay, a non-runner is reading your blog???? Thank you for bringing sexy back with your cell phone! Good luck with the double deuces tomorrow.
WOW! 22 miler…good luck with that! Makes me tired just thinking about it. Give us all of the gory details!
Sorry about your run Wednesday. Hopefully you will have a good weekend and be back on track to the normal BRA awesomeness.
Have a great 22 miler, I have a long run on tap this weekend as well!
I could soooo break my phone with my sweat. I'm pretty sure that was the cause of death of my last Garmin too. :/
Have a great weekend and have fun with the run!
You two are gonna ROCK those 22 miles no problemo!
Sometimes we have sucky runs that we wanna forget. Such is life. But the fact you were able to get yourself out the door and complete all those miles is a testament to your determination, dedication, and runner-ness. PS, a 9:4o pace is still really fast! 🙂
Those are some big (and fast) miles… looks like a big PR in your future.
22.5 miles is a long ass way! Good luck this weekend.
Sorry to hear about your phone. I always bring my phone and usually wrap it in a plastic bag. Besides breaking it with my sweat, it would probably slip from my fingers.
I hope you have a good long run!
You're gonna rock it girl, I just know it!! Can I be you when I grow up?
Wow! Good luck on your long run. It would take a TON of motivation for me to run a 22 miler. Have a great weekend!
Nice week! Good luck with the long run tomorrow and have a great weekend!
Wow. Breaking your cell phone with your sweat. In your sports bra. Pretty kinky….
Good luck on your 22.5 mile run tomorrow. It seems such a long distance. Oh wait! It is! Make sure you fuel well! I think about you when I finish up my lowly 17 mile run….
I'll try to bring back some P-Funk photos for you. Don't know how successful I'll be. I should have them up my Monday if I get any.
You should probably be careful stuffing things in your bra.
Have a fun run.
Yeah, yeah you run. We get it. JUST KIDDING. Can't wait for you to rock the house with this run so we can p-a-r-t-y!
Have fun on your 22.5 mile run! You and The Redhead should take turns motivating each other! Sing songs or nursery rhymes or something! Have a great run!
hope your 22miler is going well! sorry about the sexy sweaty broken cell phone. enjoy the weekend!
hope the long run went well!!
