Scull single 8k
Between activity banana
Run 6 miles, at the Lake, my legs were tired, my pace was slow and I wasn't even winded, should have adjusted my ratio, used 1 min run/20 sec walk average pace 10:26. I did much better on the final mile when I just ran 9:44 for that one.

erg 2k warmup, 3.5 k moderate, 2k cool down

1k warm up
Rowing practice, just 8k so we could get home for the presidential debates
Finished practice with a set of jumpies, push-ups, sit ups, squat thrusts, lateral lunges, jumping jacks

Latte cinnamon harvest cereal for breakfast
Scull single 6k
Luna Bar
Run 6 miles, 1.5 mile warm up, 4 X cadence drills, 4 X acceleration drills , 5 min jog HR below 70%, 6 X 400m, 2 min RI HR below 70%

Not quite sure why I threw in those 400 m repeats. I think because I tend towards really slow when I run right after rowing, unless I run with my husband. Wanted a little section where I pushed
My goal pace for the 400's was 7:50, although I did some of them on a trail so I was going to let myself be a bit slow, It turned out I could not read my Garmin in the shady trail section with my sunglasses while running. My pace on the 400's 7:53. 7:59, 7:30,7:49, 7:44. 7:41

Friday, bad weather so this was my rest day

Morning scull in a double about 10k. We may race a double at Head of the Hooch. It all depends on available entries and boats. Temps in the 30's, frost on the dock

My stomach/gut was not happy and I skipped my afternoon run

Morning scull in a double about 12 k
erg 4k. Temps in the 30's felt even colder than Sat

Afternoon 6 mile run in Forest Park St. Louis, did the outer loop, counterclockwise from the Visitors center, mile 2 is an uphill used 1 min run/ 20 sec walk, dropped walk breaks for the last 0.5 mile, I wish I'd hit the lap button. Average pace 9:23, splits 9:29,9:52.9:16,9:32,9:28.8:40, Looking at the graph in the training center the last 0.5 mile looks to be 8:13, Could not drop my husband today.

Although I don't tend to do Gu on a 6 mile run, my husband does, so this time I did too. So one Gu at mile 4. (Last week when I dropped my husband he had forgotten his Gu)

    Great run! Cool weather is wonderful, isn't it? That GU does make a difference.
You ought to go for Boston -- you could do it.
