Here is the new plan. I am planning a week of running around Park City (and of course that includes eating at all of the delicious restaurants) for us to do together and all of you reading this right now are required to come. No questions asked. You actually have to come.
Dynamic running drills before each run and lots of stretching and foam rolling after each run.
Monday: 9 miles. First 2 miles at 8:30 pace, 3rd mile at 8:00, miles 4-8 at 7:24 and the last mile in 6:25.
Tuesday: 40 minute run at an 8:30 pace.
Wednesday: 8 miles with an interval workout. 8:15 warm-up pace with 8 x 1 minute fast intervals (6:10 pace) with 1 minute recovery in between. 8:15 pace cool-down.
Thursday: 5 miles with jogging stroller at a 8:14 pace in the A.M. and form drills in the afternoon with my running coach.
Friday: 7 miles at a 8:19 pace.
The last few weeks I have loved running but I hadn’t felt really motivated to train hard (does that make sense?) I wasn’t putting that much energy into it and just kind of doing my workouts half-heartedly.
Between working with my coach this past weekend and watching the race yesterday my motivation to work super hard at running is back and stronger than ever. I am kind of excited about this.
How did your long run go this week?

Favorite season for running?
-Fall is definitely mine.
