July 30th: 5:55am wakeup. Out the door for a morning run on my own by 6:10am. 3+ miles (24:29). Nice and easy. Back to stretch, shower, eat some Honey Nut Cherrios for breakfast, and make my lunch. Work 7:30am-4pm. Normal day at work. Flew right by for a Monday. Peanut butter and nutella sandwich for lunch.
Home by 4:30pm. Chilled for a bit. Napped from 5:40pm-7pm. I even set an alarm (timer for 20 minutes) to try to just get a mini power nap in before the afternoon run. Nope. Turned it off and continued to sleep.
Changed up for a little tempo run. 7.1 mile loop (40:56). No mile splits, but I did split a couple different points. First 2 miles was 6:05 pace, next 2.2 was 5:46 pace, next 1.8 miles was 5:26 pace, and finished relaxed the last mile or so in 5:33 pace. Felt smooth and relaxed.
Back to stretch, foam roll, protein shake and heat up my burrito mix for dinner. Made yet another leftover burrito that tasted just as good as the first one a couple days ago. Showered up and watched some television before bed at a decent hour.
10 miles on the day. Solid official start to the marathon training.
