Back on Track

The week was incomplete. Intervals on Tuesday left me sore! Thursday flew to Long Beach and didn't do my scheduled tempo. Saturday my 8 miles became only 5 miles. However, I feel success because I finally got out.

Going with Furman plan again, but with more pressure on the pacing. Established an ambitious 10K of 9:42 for intervals of 8:57 and tempo of 9:72. However, very hard to follow for the long runs. That pace will set me for long runs at 10:27. Unachievable for now but focus is on the first two key runs.

I feel I am back on track.

Hooray for getting back out!!

BTW, my ribs hurt because I had a nasty bike fall 3 weeks ago. Landed hard on my side and bruised them. Usually takes 4-6 weeks to heal.

I agree with Maddy -- speed WILL come. Go Lizzie Lee!!!

Great job Lizzie Lee! I have the Furman plan book. I've been thinking about it for my marathon training. I'll be interested to see how it goes for you.
