The Weekly Recap

Thanks to everyone for the notes about the beginner’s guide. If anyone is interested, I’d like to run it by a few people for feedback before it’s published. Just let me know! On the running front, it was another solid week. I hit 41 miles again. My easy 4 miles on Thursday were pretty crappy after fasting and some routine bloodwork. Meredith and Scott were doing 8 miles on Saturday, so I ran a mile to meet them and then ran a mile back home after I was done running 8 with them. Though I averaged over 9 min/mile for the whole run, I felt good at the end and did a few 7 min/mile surges in the last mile. Here’s how the week shaped up:

Monday: 6.5 miles easy with 6 50-100 m strides
Tuesday: 4 miles easy and core/lower body strength training
Wednesday AM: 6.5 miles easy with 6 50-100 m strides
Wednesday PM: 4 miles easy
Thursday: 4 miles easy
Friday: 6 miles easy
Saturday: 10 mile Long run
Total: 41 miles

In the coming week, I’m going to scale my mileage back just a tad as a bit of a recovery week. Today, I’m 19 weeks away from the Gasparilla half marathon, so this will be my last week sans speedwork.


  1. i’ll take a sneak peak, as long as you aren’t expecting an einstein-opinion 🙂

    solid week! you know what i thought about today… whatever happened to that ‘thing’ you were working on where you were gonna kind of have a team and order gear? 🙂
