Running Recap: Week of 9/21/2009 – 9/27/2009

This week was a solid week and it felt very nice to finish it off on Saturday morning, even though that particular run was somewhat brutal at the end.  I had two good quality workouts and my longest run in over a year and a half.  Here’s how it went:

Monday AM: Threshold run + R pace intervals totaling 10 miles

Monday PM: 3 miles at 8:52 pace

Tuesday AM: 6 miles at 8:54 pace

Wednesday AM: 200, 1000 and 400 m intervals totaling 10 miles

Thursday AM: 6 miles treadmill with Richie (8:30 pace) + full body strength training

Thursday PM: 4 miles running to and from Alice’s cross country meet (8:02 pace)

Friday AM: 6 miles at 8:19 pace

Friday PM: 4 miles with Alice at 8:59 pace

Saturday AM: 16.8 miles at 9:34 pace

Total: 65.8 miles

So, I hit another new weekly mileage PR.  I thought I had gone faster on the long run, but I guess that last couple of miles really killed the overall pace.  It was good to push the distance out a little farther, though.  The speed will come later.

This week will probably be lighter since life has already gotten in the way a bit and I’ve got a race at the end of the week.  I’m in my last 2 weeks of 10K training and then I’m officially training for a marathon….and that’s just a little bit scary.


  1. Wow! Them’s some serious miles Brian! Of course, I am finding that the time commitment to run thoe type of miles is even more impressive! Way to go.

    And I like your description of taper. Isn’t it true….
