Tomorrow: 13.1 m race!

 

 

 

Comments:  I didn't take the day totally off.  I biked with my daughter out to StuffMart, about a six mile round trip.  But that wasn't exercise.  That was errands.

Distance: 9.2 miles

Time: 1:30:38

 

Pace: 9:51 per mile

Stretch: No

 

 

 

 

Weekly mileage: 49.3 miles

Cumulative mileage: 353.1 miles

 

 

 

Tomorrow: Cross training

 

Comments: After yesterday's long run, I had planned to run easy today.  But I felt good, and it was a nice morning, so I got out and ran 9 miles at just under my 10 minute pace.  It was hard, but it felt good!  I'm dedicating this morning's run to Paula Radcliffe, who also finished even though she didn't feel like it.
