Weekly Running Log Update (23 May 2011 ~ 29 May 2011)

Did kettlebell and yoga for core fitness training on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday.  I ran on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday for a total of 21 miles.  Thursday was a rest day, but did 30 minutes of yoga.

On Friday, instead of my normal tempo run, I ran a 5K race.  I beat my goal of 18:30, running an 18:26, which was also a personal record.  Click here for details of the race report.

This upcoming week will also be a light week since I’m planning to run a half marathon on Sunday.  I’ll do my normal kettlebell and yoga routine on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  On Tuesday I’ll do 6 x 400m intervals and an easy and relaxed 5 – 6 mile run on Thursday.  I will do a little restorative yoga on Saturday, the day before the race.  Sunday morning (June 5th) will be my half marathon in Tokyo and if the weather conditions are decent, I am hoping to run around 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Training Results this Week:

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

Tuesday – Intervals (Treadmill, 2% incline), 6 x 400s with a 400m rest between intervals.  2 mile warm-up, 1.25 mile cooldown.  Ran intervals in 1:14 ~ 1:18 per interval (4:56 ~ 5:13/mile 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.
