7 miles easy / 1:07 / 9:34 avg pace
Week 5 went surprisingly well, especially after a weekend of bachelorette festivities. The lack of sleep did me in and I practically dragged myself out of bed for each run. But, as always, once I got moving I was fine.
MON: 6 miles speed
TUE: 6 miles tempo
WED: 8 miles easy
FRI: 18 miles (so happy about this run!)
SAT: 4 easy miles at the shore
42 miles for the week (it’s a drop-back week). I’m hoping to hit the big 5-0 this week.
So here’s a really random, so-not-related-to-this-post question: when you wear running tights (or yoga pants), do you wear underwear? I’ve gotten asked this question a few times (I don’t) and I have pretty strong feelings on this one. First off, why would you? I can’t think of anything more uncomfortable. And unsightly. I’ve been behind women in races and all I can see is panty lines. If you do don the underwear, I would love to hear why!
