|Idaho Bird Camp - the Sequel|
Tuesday: Tempo Run--2 miles warm-up, 4 miles at 8:35/mi (goal marathon pace), 1 mile cool-down. I asked Coach Becki if she wanted me to run the 4 miles with an average of 8:35/mi for all 4 miles or if she wanted me to hit 8:35/mi for each mile. I asked because of the rolling hills on my usual routes around home. I can get pretty fast on the downhills and slow on the uphills. She told me that average is good, but I really should try to hit the pace for each mile to get used to how they feel. With that information, I decided to run the tempo miles on the track. Tempo miles: 8:34, 8:33, 8:32, 8:07 (7.1 miles, 9:15/mi). In the afternoon I flew to Salt Lake City to begin my Idaho Bird Camp adventure (the sequel-2017).
Wednesday: It was supposed to be an off day, but I ran 3 easy miles with Tina before we started our drive to Challis, ID (3.0, 10:22/mi).

Saturday: River of No Return Endurance Run 25k. My longest trail run/race ever. Very hot and very steep (3500 feet elevation gain in 4 miles) and my lungs aren't used to running at elevation. It was a tough run. Official time: 3:05:33 (11:57/mi). 3rd place female, overall masters.
Sunday: OFF. Lots of walking in airports as I traveled home.
Total Weekly Miles: 39.1 miles (7 hours, 42 minutes)
Total Cross-Training/Prehab: 1 hour, 5 minutes (I need to get back in the habit!)

|Until next year!|
