Day off of running today, so we did a fun fishing launch on Mille Lacs and now I’m in Duluth for a conference (a/k/a two days of eating too much food and drinking too much beer, while attending a few classses!) until Tuesday. Do you notice that I’m not actually touching the fish in the picture?! I don’t touch or eat fish! Just catch them occasionally. And no, I don’t put on the bait either. Ewwwwww.
This week started off worrisome, with a tweaked/hurt groin (from pilates!), but ended up with a strong finish with a 20 miler on Friday, followed by 5 miles of tempo on Saturday (8:27, 7:51, 7:58, 7:56, 8:36). Coach beleives following some of the long runs with a tempo run on tired legs will be super helpful come race day. I was surprised how ready my legs felt to run fast on Saturday. Woot!
