My planned running schedule for this week – 75 miles #running

With my schedule this week, it looks like the following schedule will be how my attempt at 75 miles will happen:

Monday:

  • 7 miles AM – Recovery (9’30″ pace or slower)
  • 6 miles PM – Easy (natural, full stride, ballpark 8’50″-9’00″) 8’31″/pace is pretty easy
    • Actual workout:  6 miles at an average 8’21″ pace–quite a bit more aggressive than originally planned.  I opted for the treadmill, because I wasn’t in the mood to deal with lunch time traffic outside.  I started at a solid 8’31″ pace, but felt pretty good at 8’00″ and even 7’30″.  I even added a few strides of 6’12″-6’25″ in for variety towards the end.

Tuesday

  • 7 miles AM – Recovery
    • Actual workout:  ran a third run on Monday, while watching the Packers-Vikings game.  7 miles at an average 9’31″ pace.
  • 6 miles PM – Easy
    • Actual workout: 6 miles at an average 8’33″ pace–first half at 7.0 mph on the treadmill, second half at 7.1 mph on the treadmill.

Wednesday

  • 10 miles APM – Tempo (8-miles @ 7’23″ pace)
    • Actual workout: 8 miles in 58:46 or 7’21″ pace, 10 miles in 1:17:46 or 7’47″ pace.  Hacking cough tripped me up at miles 5 and 6.

Thursday

  • 7 miles AM – Recovery
  • 6 miles PM – Easy

Friday

  • 6 miles PM – Recovery

Saturday

  • 20 miles AM – marathon pace workout

  • Week 7 of the streak and injury analysis #twit2fit Start of week 7 of the streak Given the usual madness of holiday weekends, I didn't think the streak would survive this onslaught, but I not only got a run in, I managed to hit my target distance of 6.4 miles. Challenge #2:  I woke up with a stiff back. ......
  • Hard to get going this morning Slow start. Sore knee, ankle felt iffy to start. Had trouble breaking 9:30 pace for first 1/2 mile.Decent run after that... stayed along Bardstown Road for 3 miles of the run. Even at < 6 am, that's pretty annoying--but I didn't want to do the hill in Vettiner Park this......
  • Streak, Day 5: 2.81 miles in 27'01" #twit2fit Yesterday was a "tempo" day--a 1 mile tempo.  Maybe that's an interval.  Needless to say, I thought I could run a 7 minute mile, but I lost the pace at about 4/10 of a mile and struggled to keep a 7'20" mile. Coming off of that effort with a little......
  • I laugh so that I don't cry Actually, the drama is diminished for me today. I believe I have found a mostly acceptable workout routine while recovering:30 minutes of hard biking on the StairMaster bike downstairs twice per week.45 minutes of 180 cadence elliptical work twice per week.Maybe I can work in 2 hours on Saturday morning......
  • Negative splits on my 18 miler (streak day 92) #twit2fit Last week, I ran a 16 miler in which I never got my legs under me.   My expected easy/long run pace is roughly 9:30 per mile, but I'm okay with 10 minute miles given the warmer weather. My result was a 10:19 pace for 16 miles, with the last few......
  • Day 38 of the streak #twit2fit I've run 27 miles in 5 days, and today's run truly felt like miles 23 - Finish of a marathon that I had not properly prepared for.  I guess part of the lesson here is that I've run most of the last week too fast. 3.25 miles in 31:57 (9:50......
