Weekly Recap 3/22 - 3/28

I've been so busy with work the past few weeks and haven't been up to writing. I'm basically going to start just doing weekly recaps for myself and race reports when I race on this blog as I lack the energy/time to do much else these days but I'd like to have weekly recaps to go back and analyze for myself.

3/22 - Rest Day. Should have biked and lifted but I was too exhausted and still recovering from the week of work before as I had stayed at work until 10pm 3 times that week.
3/23 - 4.07 miles, 34:07, 8:24 pace. I felt amazing on this run and it just went so well. It was in the pouring rain and I actually love running in the rain, I find it fun and love hopping over puddles etc ... I also did Runner's World Never Get Hurt program, core work and foam rolling after my run.
3/24 - Rest Day. Left work early as I wasn't feeling well and came home and fell asleep until 7:30pm. Too exhausted to work out.
3/25 - 9 miles, 1:18:55, 8:47 pace. Nice run, gorgeous weather. I had a little foot numbness and tight calves but felt good overall. A little faster than my usual mid week runs but it wasn't bad.
3/26 - Rest Day.
3/27 - 9.2 miles. I had signed up for Tall Mom's Virtual Race, so I decided to do a 5K time trial in the middle of this run. Ugh, bad idea, it did not go well. I warmed up for 3 miles and then set my Garmin for a 5K, finishing in 24 minutes. I started out and just wasn't in the right mindset. I can't race unless I'm actually at a race. I finished in 25:34 8:13 pace, which is barely faster than my HMP but oh well. Overall, 9.2 miles, 1:21:35, 8:55 pace. It was cold out this morning too and I wasn't happy about that as I had put most of my winter running gear away and had to pull some of it out.
3/28 - 11.4 miles, 1:42:51, 9:02 pace. Awful run. I was supposed to do 12 but talked myself into 11.4. I felt awful, so tired. I can't believe my pace was 9 min miles, I felt like I was moving so slowly. But it's done and now it's time for stretching, a smoothie and an ice bath.

Weekly mileage: 33.6 miles
March mileage: 129.7 miles (I have one more March run)
2010 mileage: 352.3 miles
