3 x 2.5M in 5:43 pace for 14.3M total
13.8M with 4 miles tempo with Billy
I just keep on feeling better and better with each step I take. I feel so fortunate that I did not get sick upon returning from India, as I did when I returned from China. It's just made the transition back to my normal work and training schedule so much easier! This week Coach had outlined a pretty tough workout which would help prepare me mentally for the Brooklyn half in just ten days. I was a bit nervous and my legs were definitely tired, but both Billy and I surprised ourselves and ran faster than we were expecting. It was a great way to start the week and gave me the confidence I need to run a decent time at the Brooklyn half. Billy and I continued our workout partnership later in the week when we did a 14 miler with a little 4 mile progression thrown in the middle. It wasn't easy, but it was humid and sticky out and we got it done without quitting. Overall, I'm right where I want to be with my fitness, especially given my schedule. I've also been able to hang out with my only non-running friend a bit, as you can see in the selfie below. This is definitely my strategy to find Kishor a girlfriend.
