goofy training week 7

recap of training week 7 (10/20-10/26):
[day - mileage, time, avg hr]
mon - 5.15 easy, 47:20, 139
tue - 8.4 tempo, 1:08:02, 170
wed - 7 easy, 1:04:31, 143
thu - off, traded with friday
fri - 6.3 easy, 53:41, 159
sat - 13.1 race (tempo), 1:41:49, 176
sun - 16 easy, 2:16:59, 155

mileage total - 56.00

the spinx half was successful in that i did not push the pace and just ran it as a tempo run. of course i was slightly disappointed that i didn't pr still, but it felt good to have ran a semi-hard effort and still feel energized afterwards. the 16 the day after went well. i wasn't sore and i never slowed down significantly although i felt my legs and feet getting tired.

now i'm one month out from atlanta and starting to feel the tiniest bit of confidence that i can run my 8min/mile average goal. here's hoping the next few weeks go well.
