Delaware Marathon week 15

M: 6.1 on treadmill
T; 6.2 outside
W: 4.4 on treadmill, 10 min w/u, 3.2 @ 7.6, c/d. Felt hard
T: mild, short HIIT
F: off
Sa: 6.3 including a 21:50 5k! Didn't know I had it in me.
Su: 20.2, 15.5 outside, 4.7 on treadmill because I came home for water and couldn't bear leaving again.

Summary: 43ish.

Let's talk about that 5k. This was a race we've done many times. It's mildly hilly. It has two annoying tight turns. It shouldn't have been that fast, but I ran with my old cross country coach who is fast and he pushed me. It was great!

My legs felt it during my long run. I'm pretty sure I was physically fatigued, not mentally because when I slowed down I was able to keep moving. I got near the house and wanted water.... And never left. I hopped on the treadmill and slogged through the last few miles. I'm proud I finished but it was ugly.

Other excitement? We bought a house! Or rather, we put in an offer and it was accepted. Now for the fun house buying stuff, and readying our place to sell. 5 weeks until the marathon, 6(???) Weeks until we close on the new place!
