Weekly Running Log Update (30 May 2011 ~ 5 June 2011)

Did kettlebell and yoga for core fitness training on Monday and Thursday.  I ran on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday for a total of 24 miles.  Wednesday and Saturday were rest days, although I did manage to get in 50 minutes of yoga on Saturday.

On Sunday, instead of my normal long run, I ran a half marathon race.  I beat my goal of 1:30, running a 1:29.  Although not a PR, I was happy with the results.  Click here for details of the race report.

This upcoming week will be getting back to the routine of maintaining my base.  I’ll do my normal kettlebell and yoga routine on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  On Tuesday I’ll do 6 x 800m intervals, a tempo of 10 miles on Thursday, and long run of about 15 miles on Sunday.  I will do a little restorative yoga on Saturday as a rest day.  It is getting warm, so I’ll have to look at reducing my pace a bit.

Training Results this Week:

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

Tuesday – Intervals (6 x 400s with a 90 seconds rest between intervals, intervals between 1:20 to 1:25).

Wednesday – Rest Day

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

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

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.
