Running Recap: Week of 8/02/2009 – 8/09/2009

I’m glad to put this week behind me.  Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t posted for over a week.  That’s because my laptop got some sort of weird virus.  I ended up wiping the hard drive and reinstalling windows, along with all the other programs I had installed.  What a pain in the butt!  I lost a lot of time and spent the whole week under a lot of stress trying to get things done without my laptop while trying to repair my laptop.  Everything seems to be in order now, though.  Here’s how the week went running-wise:

Monday AM: 6 miles at 8:18 pace + full body strength

Monday PM: 4 miles at 7:55 pace

Tuesday AM: 3.5 miles at 8:47 pace (failed interval session)

Wednesday AM: 5 miles with Alice at 11:07 pace

Thursday AM: 1.5 miles at 6:45 + .75 miles at 6:45 + 1 mile at 6:45 pace.  Total = 10 miles.

Thursday PM: 4 miles with Alice at 9:55 pace

Friday AM: 3 miles at 8:19 pace

Friday PM: 2.25 miles with Alice at 9:47 pace

Saturday AM: 14.5 miles with Richie at 10:20 pace.

Total: 52 miles

The long run on Saturday morning started off well.  I hit 10 miles at 8:00 pace, but then the legs and stomach conspired to slow things down.  I’m just glad I got a decent amount of mileage in.  Hopefully next week will be better.


  1. i was wondering how the computer business was going… raffi told me like 2 weeks ago (it feels like) about the crash. major bummer. at least you had running to take yor frustrations out on!

    looks like the mileage is coming along well. wonder when your legs will start to ‘feel’ the higher mileage?

  2. That looks like a great week to me. Is Alice your wife? From the look of the pace it seems like she’s getting her fast runs in you, and you’re getting your recovery with her. That’s awesome teamwork.

  3. One day I will get up to your kinda mileage. I did run my 1st mile during my race on Saturday in your kinda time….7:01 pace the 1st mile…then I crashed and burned on mile 3. I am a long way from your speed!!!!
