Monday: rest day
Tuesday: 2x 400's, 1 mile @ GMP, 2x 400's. This workout kicked my ass. The gym was hot and the effort seemed way too much for this last speed workout.
Wednesday: rest day
Thursday: easy 4 miles through my mom's 'hood. I did numerous laps around the streets which didn't have the truly LARGE hills and was still out of breath from this run. Didn't help it was almost 70 degrees and I was over dressed. Derp.
Friday: easy 4 + 5x 20 second sprints at the gym. This one also felt less than easy for the pace. I was overheated in this really nice gym. Side note: L and I easily brought down the average age in the gym by 33+ years that morning.
Saturday: Rest Day!
Went down to Knoxville to pickup my bib at the expo. Rested a lot and tried to come up with a good strategy for the enormously hilly course that was waiting for me on Sunday.
Sunday: KNOXVILLE MARATHON!
I finished my 11th marathon with a huge smile on my face, and it also happened to be my 2nd fastest time ever. A recap is in the works. Until then, I'll just say it went pretty much as expected, and the hills were no joke!
