Weekly Running Log Update (9 May 2011 ~ 15 May 2011)

Got back to a normal training routine this week.  I did my routine KettleWorX/Yoga core fitness training on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  I ran on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday for a total of 33 miles.  Saturday was a rest day, but did about 40 minutes of yoga.

This upcoming week I’ll do the same routine, kettlebell, yoga, and running – but will add another 800 interval during my interval training on Tuesday.  The following week I have a 5K race I am planning to run and will be aiming for a sub 18:30 time.  The 5K race will be followed up a week later with a half marathon in early June.

Training Results this Week:

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

Tuesday – Intervals (Treadmill, 2% incline), 6 x 800s with 90 second rest between intervals.  1.5 mile warm-up, 1.75 mile cooldown.  Ran intervals in 2:51 per interval (5:42/mile pace).  This workout was a bit of a struggle, still tired from the hard running over the previous weekend.

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

Thursday – Tempo, 1 mile warm-up, 8 miles tempo (6:40 minute pace), 1 mile cooldown.  Felt pretty strong on this run.

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

Saturday – Yoga (40 minutes)

Sunday – Long Run around the Yokohama (~ 16 miles, average 7:04 pace).  Felt really good on this run.

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.
