A quick note to let you know I am still out here, and just trying to survive. I have stopped beating myself up for not keeping with my training plan since my work schedule now has me 60-70+ hrs/week the last couple of weeks. I am now just proud I am slipping in a run here and there. The weight training is out, but I am getting my interval and tempo runs in.
Week 6: Only 14 miles for the entire week - with my long run cut short due to darkness! Ran the 5.15 miles at a pace just under 11 min/mile with no walking breaks.
Week 7: My current week - got my tempo run in tonight. In spite of some lack of sleep, I managed just over 5 miles at a 10:26 min/mi pace. I am pretty happy with that. Next run maybe Thurs, maybe Fri. Next couple of work days promise to be crazy.
I am going to upload a short Running "Mini-Adventure". The anniversary 14th episode is still in the works, but I ran out of time again this week to produce it.
Hope everyone's training is going well. If my work schedule is not crazy enough, I went and signed up for that 10K anyway! If I can get the proper rest I still may have a 10K PR in me. I just need to maintain a 10:15 min/mi pace - I am just about there!
