Weekly Recap- November 17-23, 2014

This weekend I had a long back-to-back run to prepare for Goofy--8 on Saturday and 16 on Sunday.  It was my longest back-to-back run yet and my highest mileage week that I've ever done and I could so feel it.  Not feeling so confident about Goofy right now.

Goofy training week 11

Monday--rest.  Softball tournament got rained out.

Tuesday--ran 6.40 miles in 1:08:21.  Mile 1: 10:43, Mile 2: 10:38, Mile 3: 11:00, Mile 4: 10:35, Mile 5: 10:49, Mile 6: 10:32, Mile 6-6.4: 10:07, Average Pace: 10:41.  Ran the whole thing!

Softball tournament at night.  We lost :(  It was so close the whole game then at the top of the last inning we went up by 7 runs.  Surely we should have it, right??  Nope, we lost it.  And I didn't help any on the last play of the game.  Sigh.

Wednesday--rest.  I had planned to do Dance Trance but apparently for the package I have, you have to sign up online 6 hours in advance.  I didn't know that and tried to sign up right before I left.

Thursday--Ran 7 miles in 1:11:47.  Ran 36 mins then did 2:1s. Mile 1: 9:46, Mile 2: 10:04, Mile 3: 9:57, Mile 4: 10:33, Mile 5: 10:45, Mile 6: 10:39, Mile 7: 9:59, Average Pace: 10:15.  Felt much better about my pace today.

That night I went to one of my student's baseball games.  They never look very small to me in the classroom because everything is their size.  But out there on the field, they look like babies!!

Friday--rest.  Kory and I had date night at Texas Roadhouse.  I've only been there once before but much prefer Outback.

Saturday--ran 8 miles in 1:21:48.  Mile 1: 9:31, Mile 2: 9:43, Mile 3: 9:49, Mile 4: 9:48, Mile 5: 11:05, Mile 6: 10:36, Mile 7: 10:39, Mile 8: 10:35, Average Pace: 10:13.  Great pace again!  I ran with Faith & Heather's church running group.  It was my first time running on the West Orange Trail and I really liked it!  We passed this odd sight of a Seminole, Gator, & Hurricane  Apparently a guy used to own this place and keep it great looking but he passed away and no one has kept it up.  It was kinda creepy though.


Sunday--ran 16 miles in 3:07:50.  Mile 1: 10:36, Mile 2: 9:47, Mile 3: 10:07, Mile 4: 12:32, Mile 5: 12:15, Mile 6: 11:59, Mile 7: 11:54, Mile 8: 12:13, Mile 9: 11:53, Mile 10: 11:45, Mile 11: 11:55, Mile 12: 11:57, Mile 13: 12:25, Mile 14: 12:08, Mile 15: 12:29, Mile 16: 11:51, Average Pace: 11:44.  Today was really rough.  I was over it at mile 9.  I think it was because I went pretty hard yesterday and then started out too fast today.  At mile 12.5 I had to drop to alternating between 2:1s and 1:1:s and I really wanted to quit.  I'm just not sure how I'm going to get another 2 miles for my 18 miler, another 4 miles for my 20 miles and another 10.2 for the marathon!!
