Weekly Running Log Update (2 May 2011 ~ 8 May 2011)

A good week of training, with a decent 10K performance (click here for race report) this past Saturday.  I did my routine KettleWorX/Yoga core fitness training on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.  I ran on Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday for a total of 28 miles this week.

This week I’ll begin training preparations for a hot half marathon in early June.  Haven’t decided upon a strategy yet, but knowing that it will most likely be warm, I am not expecting to set a PR.

Training Results this Week:

Monday – Intervals, 6 x 400s with 1 minute rest between intervals.  15 minute warm-up, 11 minute cooldown.  Ran intervals between 1:18 ~ 1:23 (5:14 ~ 5:33/mile pace), average interval was 1:21 (5:25/mile pace).

Tuesday – Kettlebell (26 minutes), Yoga (20 minutes)

Wednesday – Tempo, 1 mile warm-up, 3 miles tempo (7 minute pace), 1 mile cooldown.  Did tempo on the treadmill w/2% incline.

Thursday – Kettlebell (26 minutes), Yoga (46 minutes)

Friday – Yoga (55 minutes)

Saturday – 10K race, time 39:28, Yoga (20 minutes).

Sunday – Leisurely Long Run around the Yokohama Bayfront (~ 12.5 miles, average 7:55 pace).


About runninginspired

I’m in my mid-40s and have been running for about 19 years. I have finished 24 marathons with a personal best time of 3:04. I currently reside in San Diego, CA. I enjoy running since it keeps you honest and will give back what you put into it. Work hard, but smart, and good results will eventually follow. I like to experiment with training plans, gadgets, shoes, and nutrition to find what works for me. The primary purpose of this blog is to document my training and thoughts about running in my ongoing quest to improve my fitness and health.
