Just when I think I have the hang of balancing medical school, coaching and running:
Monday: 9.3 Recovery
Tuesday: 9 miles.
Wednesday: 11 miles with 2 by 20 at T pace with 5 miles in between. Hot and hill but kept my heart at 170.
Thursday: 9.7 recovery.
Friday: 10.3 miles with 4 striders at the end.
Saturday am: 5 miles. Coaching snafu.
Saturday pm: 5 miles, trying to finish the week up.
Sunday: 20.5 miles and nailed my nutrition! Root Beer Gu is amazing.
Total Mileage: 80 miles.
This week was just plain overwhelming schedule-wise. I survived, my team is still intact (and ran incredibly well on Saturday) and I think I’m still enrolled in medical school. 5 more weeks to go!
