Get ready for the shortest weekly recap yet! This week was all about taking it easy and resting before the Oakland Half.
Tues: 1 mile warm-up, 1 mile of fartlek intervals, 1 mile easy-medium, short cool-down. Some Garmin issues, so pace is approximate.
Stats: 3.2 miles @ 10:07/mile + 30 min stretching/rolling
Wed: 45 min core + PT exercises/stretching/rolling
Thurs: The plan was: 1 mile warm up, 1 mile race pace, 1 mile medium effort, the rest cool down. I ended up running the race pace mile a tad too fast (8:56) — I made a mental note to not go out too fast during the race. (*foreshadowing*)
Stats: 3.3 miles @ 9:47/mile + 30 min stretching/rolling
Fri: Last run before the Oakland Half. 3 easy miles around the lake without my Garmin.
Stats: 3.3 miles @ ~10:09/mile + 30 min stretching/rolling
Sat: 30 min stretching/rolling
Sun: Oakland Half Marathon! 2:04:26 official time (course record). Rankings: 99/310 AG, 532/1980 F; 1250/3258 overall. Recap coming soon.
Stats: 13.3 miles @ 9:21/mile + 20 min stretching/rolling
WEEKLY TOTAL: 23.3 miles + 3+ hours strengthening/PT/stretching
How I felt about it: Felt good leading up to the race, but did not execute my race plan very well.
