Santa Rosa – Week 5 of 16 and SD100

The major highlight of my training week was to companion D during his first 100-mile finish at the San Diego 100! Not only did he finish the race in record high heat with the lowest finishing rate (46%), he finished 25th with a 25:13 time!  I am very proud of him and I hope to be the one crossing that finish line this time next year. The photo above was taken after shortly after the race with all our friends (racers/crews/pacers/volunteers) that were waiting at the finish line when we showed up at 8:13 in the morning. It was a long Saturday and Sunday for us all and we were very lucky to be able to spend so much time together in an environment that we love.

Week 5
Total Miles: 66.92
Monday – 6.29
Tuesday – 8.47 (Intervals – 5×1,000)

*Thursday – 7.69 (7 mile tempo: 7:01/6:57/7:01/7:06/7:21/dns/dns)
Friday – Rest

*Really tough run for me in the heat; I wasn’t able to run seven consecutive tempo miles and ended up only doing 5.
