Thursday Planned: Lactate Threshold 7 Miles 18 min LT, 4 min jog, 15 min LT
Thursday Actual: 3 Recovery Miles. Unicorn level run where I realized that my recovery pace is ~90 seconds per mile faster than it was less than a year a go. Yessssss.

Friday Planned: Rest/Cycling
Friday Actual: Run with Toni after working into blowing snow. Brr. Lactate Threshold 7 Miles 18 min LT, 4 min jog, 15 min LT. I haven't seen those paces on a run in a looooong time. At one point I looked down and saw a 7:40 pace. Uh.... perhaps we should slow down. Felt great though!

Saturday Planned: Endurance 9 Miles
Saturday Actual: I taught a heated vinyasa class and planned to a a 3 mile recovery run on the treadmill after to avoid the outdoors after I was soaked in sweat. I made it a half mile before the treadmill was tweaking my knee and I called it a day.

Sunday Planned: Rest
Sunday Actual: Sunday I had plans to round out my week with a long run. My knee was super tender to the touch and some pain on the inside of the left knee. I probably could have ran on it, but with a half next week, it didn't seem wise. A day spent with foam rolling, sticking, and myofascial release balls.

Total Mileage Planned: 34 miles

Total Mileage Actual:  19.6 miles
