Day 1 (Monday 5/22/17): Rest day. I walked 1.75 miles with Lucy.
Day 2 (Tuesday 5/23/17): 1:2 speed intervals x10 = 3.1 miles. Nike LunarTempo. Plus 1.75 miles with Lucy.
Day 3 (Wednesday 5/24/17): 3 miles easy pace using :90/:30 intervals (31:08). New Balance Vazee Pace v2. Plus 2.3 miles with Lucy.
Day 4 (Thursday 5/25/17): 30-minutes PiYo. Plus 2.3 miles with Lucy.
Day 5 (Friday 5/26/17): 25-minute tempo run = 2.6 miles. New Balance Vazee Pace v2. Plus 2.3 miles with Lucy.
Day 6 (Saturday 5/27/17): 8-mile LSR (1:28:13). :30/:30 intervals. Brooks Ghost 6. Plus 3.7 miles with Lucy.
Note: I really need to focus on slowing down, but I don’t want to have to stare at my Garmin. My goal pace for long, slow runs is between 12-13 minute miles, but my slowest mile on this run was 11:17. Not a big deal when long runs aren’t really “long” but this is why I crash and burn around 20 miles. Also, time to retire the Ghost 6.
Day 7 (Sunday 5/28/17): 6-mile recovery run (1:07:57). :30/:30 intervals. New Balance Zante v2. Plus 3.1 miles (so far) with Lucy.

Its good to know your reason to crash and burn! Gosh, i wish i had the trouble of being too fast. :)
Well, if you consider 11mm fast… ;)
I was kind of wondering how you could still be running in 6s!
Yeah, I’d consider 11 mm fast, too. I could definitely pace you to slow down! I was “pushing” myself for my long run — 12:30 mm.
I never upgraded from the Ghost 6 because of the bad reviews on the 7s. At least this is one more shoe I can take out of my rotation. Lol!
I’ve worn 8s and just bought a 9 — felt ok when I tried it on at the store, although I haven’t run in them yet.
Yes, slowing down for your longer runs would be good. Maybe taking longer walk breaks rather than slowing the running down if that’s easier for you to do.
Good idea. I think I’ll try :30/:45 next week (if something in/around my knee isn’t broken – damned squirrels!).
