Monday - Rest Day. I purposely didn't do any running. I did try and get out walking a little just doing normal errands and stuff. I think I was a little more sleepy than anything.
Tuesday - 3miles, 30min in Sauna (150 degrees)
Wednesday - 4miles, 30min in sauna (150 degrees)
Thursday - 3miles in the morning, 3.8 miles in afternoon. 20min in sauna (160 degrees). I found it difficult to stay in the sauna after drinking a few glasses of wine.
Friday - 10miles 1:58:30. My run on the treadmill was a little slower as I had 3 conference calls that I actively participated in during the run. I've been known at work to be running while on conference calls. I confess, its true.
I volunteered to be a chaperon for my daughters 4th grade field trip to spend the night at SeaWorld. We arrived at 5:30pm. We had a number of activities through out the park, dinner, and finally setup our sleeping bags around midnight.
It was some where around dinner time on Saturday I started trading text messages with my friend Iso on running in marathon on Sunday. Eventually I decided sure what the hell, I was going to run a few miles anyway.
Sunday - San Diego Rock-n-Roll Marathon. 26.2 miles 3:52:30. Iso was the pacer for the 3:40 pace group. The plan was to stay with him the entire way. It was a crazy plan that my best time ever in a marathon is around 3:45. I was able to stick with him for about 15-16 miles until I started fading. Iso did a great job and brought his group right on the mark at 3:40:30. I wasn't too far behind.
