Quality miles.

Last week, I continued to bounce back. I ran six times, easing into the week with two very short, easy runs that were meant simply to keep my blood flowing and my muscles moving.

On Wednesday, I ran my speedwork and felt like I was flying. This run rocked for two reasons: First, I actually got it together to run in the morning and, second, I ran my fast repeats at just under 5K pace, 6:48/mi. Sure, they were short repeats but there were 14 of them and I ran strong. Quality miles.

After a rest day on Thursday, I came back on Friday (morning, again!) with a 5.6 mile that included two miles at goal half-marathon pace. Saturday was my long run. It was windy and my route was hilly but I banged out 9.12 miles at a 9:13 pace. Yesterday was straight-up recovery with a quick, easy 3.6 miles.

In total, 28 miles for the week. Quality miles.

Ah, yes. Quality miles. I'm following this good advice:

And I'm finally starting to get excited for April's half marathon! It's about time.

I hope you all had a great weekend ~ and a good week ahead!

Awesome job this week! I love the idea of getting in quality miles! Such a great outlook to have, especially when training for the half.
