Running Recap: Week of June 6/1/2009 – 6/7/2009

So, I didn’t quite hit my hoped for 38 miles this week, but it is still recovery so I’m not going to stress too much:

Monday am: 3 miles easy treadmill + full body strength
Monday PM: 4 miles at 7:30 min/mile pace
Tuesday: Ankle hurt, so took the day off
Wednesday AM: 8 miles easy
Thursday AM: 5 miles easy
Friday: Off to Disney
Saturday: Fun at Universal
Sunday: Blizzard Beach (lots of stairs…does that count?)

Total: 20 miles

The party is over. The Race for the Taste 10K is in exactly 18 weeks. So as of tomorrow, I’m back on a regimented training plan. I think that recovery went pretty well. I took things pretty easy and stayed ralaxed (at least with respect to running). I can definitely feel the speed in my legs, but my endurance has suffered from a lack of anything over 12 miles during the Spring. I think this week will be difficult, but I’m pretty sure my body will get back into training mode in fairly short order.


  1. I’d say you can add a couple miles for walking around Disney 🙂

    Thanks for the half marathon advice, Brian. I think you’re right, I need to slow down on the long runs and focus on having a solid run rather than a “fast” pace all the time. My friend who has run marathons before also suggested maxing out at 15 miles, so I think that’s a good idea. I can’t even IMAGINE running 15 miles right now, so we’ll see how that goes when the time comes! Any more advice is greatly appreciated.

    Where does Race for the Taste take place?

  2. Sounds like my week..

    That pace chart *was* kind of neat. I’ve never seen one of mine so symetrical. Most of the time it slopes uphill to the right!

  3. whew. glad i’m not the only one 🙂

    we both need to work on dmt’s carmen electra moves and whip ourselves back into the routine! but you’re right, no reason to worry about it now. bring on the taste 10k! what’s your goal time? something crazy ridic i’m sure 🙂
