Total Miles: 96.7 down from 180 last month. That's ok with taper time and recovery time factored in. I was half tempted to do a 2nd run on Monday to get an even 100. Good thing work #1 handed my booty to me. (74.3 one year ago.)
Most hardcore run: 800 meter repeats. See below for hardcore-osity. It's legit.
Favorite Race: Uh. Cellcom Green Bay Marathon. Duh.
Current Jams: Lovin' Kevin Rudolph's--I Made It. Alyssa suggested it to me for my marathon playlist, and when I heard it during the race I seriously got choked up. Good jam for that sort of accomplishment fo sho.
Since I kinda wussed out on my mile repeats last week (or in more gentler terms, i knew my legs weren't 100% ready for speed work yet), Monday's work out was my first legit speed work session of the summer. I had 6 miles total with 1 mile warm up, and 5x800 @ 3:34-3:44 with 800 m. jogs in between. I was totally amped up to do these runs, and the weather was actually fairly nice.
I'm going to be honest when I say, I kicked my own ass. Holy cow. I had many many tough track practices back in the day, but I think this is one of the hardest workouts I've ever done. That puke threshold people are always talking about? Hit it. Twice. Impressed? Because I sure as heck am. Holy cow.
