Playing catch up here once again. What can I say I have just been downright busy!
Goal for the week to run everyday at least 60 minutes and hopefully hit 65+ miles
Monday- 6 mile run with Daisy, Salty, and CJ, and 10 minutes quick strength building for the upper body
Tuesday- Lunch 7 mile run at lunch with Daisy. Hill repeats
PM 3.3 mile run to the library and back EZ
Wednesday- 7 mile run with CJ to Edgewater- Medium Effort
Thursday- 6.5 mile lunch run EZ with Salty and CJ
pm- 60 minutes yoga with JC
Friday- 21.5 mile run 8:35 pace Pops joined me on the bike. Wonderful morning for a run.
First run with the Garmin, seemed to work pretty well, mileage was almost exactly what my dad got on his bike computer. Auto pause was iffy during bathroom stops, going to stop using auto pause for runs, I am in the habit of pausing the watch for breaks anyways, but this feature will be great on the bike when I want to start the watch and forget about it!
Saturday- 10 mile run with dad easy
Sunday- 15 mile road run easy (12 miles with MJ)
Just under 77 miles and my biggest week ever (1 more than the week before!)
7/7/08-7/13/08 Goal mini taper week and 50 miles
Monday- Rest (after 15 days in a row of running and 7 days in a row of pavement I figured I earned it)
Tuesday- 12.5 mile bike ride into work
6 mile easy run in the evening
Wednesday- Speed workout with Daisy 8.25 miles. Attempted to do a ladder around 5k pace but the heat and humidity thwarted that plan
Plenty of rest on all of these but my heart rate increased about 10bpm for each of these so we called it and just jogged it in after the mile.
PM- 2 mile walk with David
Thursday- 6 mile run with Daisy and Salty easy
Friday- 5 mile run with 6*100 strides
Saturday- 2.5 mile warm up easy
10 mile trail race
(Thanks Chef Bill for the photos!)
3 mile cool down
Sunday- 9.5 miles in Solon with Frank and Hawthorne. Pushed the pace a little too much following such a hard effort on Saturday. Left calf is sore but should be fine for Saturday with taper in full effect this week.
Total for the week 49 miles
Looking forward to some more high mileage and adding in some more goal oriented speed work following the 50k! But this week it is time to enjoy a few extra rest days, get my butt reacquainted with the bike (all easy riding), and prepare mentally for a kick ass 50k.
