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:


  • 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.


  • 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.


  • 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.


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


  • 6 miles PM – Recovery


  • 20 miles AM – marathon pace workout
    • 2 mile warm
    • 5 mile @ 8 minute target pace
    • 5 minute cool (0.5 mile)
    • repeat @ 4 miles, 4 minute recovery, 3, 2, 1
    • finish 20 @ jog

  • 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......
  • 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......
  • 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......
  • Tempo run 8.04 miles in 65 minutes (8'06" pace) I run my tempo and intervals on the treadmill (especially as opposed to running in th dark during rush hour). It's not optimal for training I guess, but I'd rather run the treadmill than miss another tempo or interval week. Mile point - speed (pace) 1% incline 0 - 6.2......
  • Cold, wet, but fruitful 16-mile in 2:26:03 (9'00"/mile) this morning #twit2fit I ran in the 45 degree rain this morning, starting about 8:30 in the morning.  I had originally intended to run with a group from work this morning at 8 am downtown, but the thunder, lightning, and downpours canceled that.  However, by 8am at the house, things had cleared up......
