Less than two weeks until the FANS 24 Hour Run, my first attempt at staying awake and moving for 24 hours. Why did I think this was a good idea? My bedtime is usually 10 PM!
Here's how my training went this week:
Tuesday - Rest day.
Wednesday - 10.94 miles in 2:10:00 for an average pace of 11:54.
Thursday - 5.59 miles in 1:05:00 for an average pace of 11:39.
Friday - 5.41 miles in 1:05:00 for an average pace of 12:02
Saturday - Tempo run on the hotel treadmill, I did 1 mile at 5.1 mph as a warmup, then did a mile at 5.5 mph, and increased the speed each mile by .1 mph. I made it all the way to a mile at 6.1 mph before having to back down. Total mileage 12.13 miles in 2:10:00 for an average pace of 10:44.
Sunday - 5.6 miles in 1:05:00 for an average pace of 11:37.
Today - 23.7 miles in 5 hours for an average pace of 12:40. It was a heat acclimation run for me, temperature was about 80 degrees with a dewpoint near 70.
My plan is to try to stay up late tonight, then run for an hour at around 2 AM. I want to see if I can function on tired legs combined with sleep deprivation. If successful, I'll be back around 3 AM and let you guys know how it went.
