13.1 @ 7:58 pace (treadmill)

Had a hard time getting my mind into the run today.  I guess that should be expected to some extent when you decide to do a longer run on the treadmill.  Plus, my ipod died half way through.

I decided during my warm up this morning to do a tempo run.

3.5 miles @ 8:00 pace warm up, 6 miles @ 7:00 pace, .5 miles @ 8:30 cool down.

The tempo pace felt easier today than in weeks past.  I was planing to go 7 miles at that pace, but my stomach was not cooperating after about 4 miles.  Probably due to the unhealthy meal I had last night.  I need to figure out what foods my body can handle prior to my harder runs.

Recovery Day

6 miles @ 9:00 pace (treadmill)

Long run of 18 miles tomorrow.  The weather forecast is for a wintry mix and temperatures in the 30s.  I will try to go outside, but will do it on the treadmill if need be (eugh).

17.9 mile long run today on the treadmill:

3 miles @ 8:34 warm up; 3 miles @ 8:13; 3 miles @ 8:00; 3 miles @ 7:30; 3 miles @ 7:03; 2 miles @ 6:58; and .9 miles @ 10:00 cooldown

The run felt good today until the last few miles when my right ankle flared up.  I took the cooldown very slow and will need to be cautious in the next few days.  I think the increased mileage recently has caught up with me.
