ToT 10 miler training: 6 weeks to go

week12

This was a weird week.  I was not feeling at all well on Sunday.  When I got up on Monday I was better but still definitely off.  I wasn’t sure if it was allergies or something else – but then I felt fine by Wednesday!  So it was a bit up and own for me but ultimately the week of running ended on a high note.  I’ve also been noticing some tightness in my left calf, so I’ve been trying to do more stretching and using a foam roller for that.  Hopefully it goes away soon.

Monday I attempted to run but I realized about halfway through that it was not a good day for that, and I headed home to rest before work instead of trying to complete the run.

Wednesday, on the other hand, was great!  I’m loving evening runs and not really looking forward to training for the Princess Half, when I feel like I’ll have to do some of my runs early in the morning to get a feel for that.  This was my best time yet.

And on Friday I did my 8 miles.  I kept it under a 12 min/mile pace and felt really good about it.  These long runs are helping me to feel much more confident about the Tower of Terror 10 miler!
