Mileage - 18.1 + 27ish tomorrow = 45ish, with a short workout, some strides, and some core work leading up to a little race
We also got school pictures back this week!

Wednesday - 5.5 base pace (7:23). My friend Rachel was running a midweek long run on loops in my area, so I ran the same loop as her to have someone else out there, even though we are different paces (also she ran 4+ loops while I ran 1.5!). This felt...short! I also did 10 minutes of core work for the last time pre-Bass Pro.
Thursday - 3.3 shake out with 6 strides in the last mile (7:21). It was 65 degrees and 100% humidity! I'm all about continued warm weather and will take it as long as I can get it, but at the same time I am glad that marathon morning isn't supposed to be this warm.
Friday - 10 minutes elliptical for the sake of the streak, followed by a thorough stretch and foam roll. I also took a "lunch break" at work (rare) and went to the race expo - the benefits of an expo that was 1.1 miles from my office!

Sunday -To be continued... Because, why not get two marathons out of a marathon training cycle, right?
