Running Recap: Week of 8/31/2009 – 9/06/2009

Wow!  What a crazy week.  My grandmother had a stroke at the end of last week and passed away on Monday morning.  So, I was off to St. Louis on Wednesday morning for her funeral.  The weather in St. Louis was absolutely beautiful and I was able to work in some very nice runs between family events.  All in all, the week wasn’t too shabby considering the interruption to the normal schedule.  Here’s how it went:

Monday AM: 7 miles at 9:10 pace

Monday PM: 3 miles at 7:48 pace

Tuesday AM: 6 miles at 8:12 pace + full body strength training

Tuesday PM: 4 miles at 8:10 pace

Wednesday PM: 4 miles at 8:13 pace

Thursday AM: 10 miles at 7:48 pace

Friday PM: 4.76 miles at 8:00 pace

Sunday PM: 3 miles with Alice at 9:01 pace

Total: 41.76

The mileage this week will likely be fairly low as well.  I’m running a 5K on Thursday with the cross country team at Alice’s school.  Then, I’m out of town for the weekend again for a Bat Mitzvah.  I know I’ve been slack in my comment on all the other blogs.  I apologize for that.  I hope to get back into my normal commenting groove this week.  Thanks for all your continued comments here!


  1. So sorry to hear about your grandmother. I had to attend a funeral a week ago and it was sad but also good because it brought the family together. Thanks for the info about Alice – I hope she does well and makes varsity! That is really great and she sounds like such a good athlete!

  2. great mileage maintenance even through all the traveling. you’re going to have a sweet 10k based off your mileage base alone! sorry to hear about your grandmother.
