This was a little redemption from Saturday's Run Fail! I didn't have a specific plan when I went out. It was going to be 7, 10 12 or 13 miles depending on how I felt. As you can see I ran the 13 as I was feeling pretty good. I got my weight back up a little (although I need it at about 156-157 to begin a run. I also ran some fartleks throughout the run to loosen up my legs a little. (Steady State slow runs seem to really tighten up my legs and make them feel very heavy.)

I ran 73 miles last week. I believe that is the most miles I have ever run in one week, (Only by a couple of miles.) but overall I think I'm feeling pretty good. I would like to maintain this higher milage for a couple more weeks an then start tapering the milage down but bring up the speed a little for the last 3-4 weeks coming into Boston.

I would really like to run a 7:30 pace at Boston. I hope I'm setting myself up to do that! :-)

Gym day. Probably should have saved it for tomorrow as the wind is supposed to be 45 MPH.

10 easy miles @ 9:15 Pace.

John 3:8 

The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

Woo Hoo...my last three mile of this 15 mile run were under 7:00 pace! 

I'm pretty happy with this run. The wind was not my friend today as it was 25 mph. I wasn't expecting this run to be very good but for some reason it was. Most of the run was with the wind at about 90 degrees to me except for maybe 2-3 miles directly into it and a couple of mile with it. 

Also a big factor is my weight was up where it needs to be at the beginning and only droped to 154 afterwards so I wasn't dehydrated as I've been on some of my previous runs. My HR was good on this run too being at 150 which is about 80%.

Matthew 17:20 

He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”

4 more miles in the evening @ 9:00 pace.

I was planning to run 9 this morning but we went to the Spurs basketball game and didn't get home until 1:00 am so I slept in a little and ran short. Sarah (my wife) started feeling bad at the game and by the time we got home was very sick at her stomach. She spent the night throwing up. I sure hope I don't get whatever she has.

Anyway... 5 Miles @ 9:00 Pace.

Maybe 4 more this evening.

Psalm 103:2-3 

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases,

Got my Boston number: 12845 (I'm the only Tatum running Boston!) :-)

I decided to run my 15 miler a little different this time and run a steady state @ 8:15 for every mile regardless of the hills. This was a good test to see where I'm at arobically. I set my watch for lap pace and checked it every so often and adjusted accordingly. My max HR was 147.

Not sure what this run tells me other than 15 miles is 15 miles no matter how you run it. :-) It gets boring near the end.

I ran the extra .15 so I could round out my mileage for the week to 72 miles. Second week over 70 miles and good so far.

So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.
