Week 5 ended up looking like this:
Monday: Driving back from South Carolina
Tuesday: 5.25 miles at 10:19 pace
Wednesday: 3.25 miles at 10:01 pace
Friday: 17 miles at 10:44 average
Sunday: 4.1 miles at 8:37 average (10:04 warm up mile followed by a 25:12 5k)
Total: 29.6 miles
After 17 miles. I was not impressed that I didn't go 20.
Now I'm into week 6 and getting ready to face taper madness! The mister has already noticed my tendency to over-think every aspect of training and racing so it should be interesting to see if I can tone it down.
Let me close with a question: To race or not to race (a 5k) this weekend?!
