Your Week in Training July 9 - 15

Post  KBFitz on Sun Jul 15, 2012 7:11 am

Daymilestype
Mon --
Tue --
Wed -- No running seven days straight. Work can get in the way at times.
Thu --
Fri 05 easy61°F/16°C Avenue Paul IV - Biryogo Mosque - Avenue de la Justice loop.
Sat --
Sun 18 long63°F/17°C Lunar expedition over Colline Mpanga. Bit the dust. Doubled up.*
Week 23 Pathetic but true.
YTD 1,442
* Took it up over the mountain through the fine dust tracks that pass for roads outside of Kigali. Ran with another runner down the other side. I expected the dirt road would merge with a tarmac road about 2 miles from the top. After 4 miles on dirt I asked him if this road went back to Muhima. He said no, Muhima was back the way we came. So he escorted me back 2 miles and put me on another dirt track to Muhima. Then that track narrowed and I decided to go back the only way I knew for sure ... back up the backside of Mt. Mpanga.

After only a few hundred meters, I bit the dust fairly hard ... falling squarely on my left arm & shoulder ... where I wear my MotoACTV. Taking my full weight in the dust shattered the gorilla glass. RIP MotoACTV.

Turns out, we were on the 'road' that would have allowed me to circumnavigate Mt. Mpanga and return home. I expected it would be tarmac and that a vehicle or two would be on it. Not so. Some day I'll learn to upload routes into my Forerunner so it can tell me if I'm on track. Then again, maybe not.

RIP gadget. I find that a turn chart tends to be helpful on new long routes.

7/7 - 116mi ride, Lakewood to San Diego
7/8 - 45min recovery run
7/9 - 45min recovery run
7/10- 51min easy run
7/11 - 55mi ride w/ 2x 5mi tempo, 1x 19min LT up a big hill
7/12 - off
7/13 - 20mi recovery ride

Week - 12hr33min, 16mi run pale

Last week before NY training begins, and I have a long way to go before November!

Mon-5 easy
Tues-6 total miles done as 8 x 400 m ave. 1:40
Wed-5 easy + 21 miles on the bike
Thur-5 miles with 6 x 45 s pickups
Fri-off
Sat-2 easy miles with striders
Sun-Presque Isle Half Marathon. 2nd AG Probably the worst weather that I have ever run/raced in. A t-storm came through that ended about 20 min before the race was to start leaving us with 73F and 99% humidity! It thundered the whole time, and the last 2 miles were in a complete torrential downpour. You couldn't even see the runners in front of you, and the course is open to traffic in the right lane. I actually manged to run 1:48:30. Warm up of 1.5 miles, no warm down due to weather.

Week-37.6 miles + 21 miles cycling

Had some sunbutter brownies this morning before my long run and they seemed to really help. I thought of Mike and his mom's brownies. Now to take them to CA. And I signed up for Marquette Marathon (MI) Labor Day weekend, too.

A fun week!

Monday: 5.5 with friends
Tuesday: was going to run, but decided to eat pizza with friends instead
Wednesday: 10.5--general aerobic with 2x400, 2x200, 2x100 at the end (in 7 min pace)
Thursday: 6.5 general
Friday: 6 on a cool train in Bend, OR
Saturday: 15 miles with 10ish at almost marathon pace (9.03s) and a honkin big hill at the end
Sunday: 6.5
TOTAL: 50!

WOW, while totally not my goal, I am thrilled that I have reached this milestone so early in my training cycle. Mostly easy miles.

Signed up for a half marathon next Saturday. Plan to run at the same pace as the one I ran in May...about 1:48 to 1:49.

Yeah I make it in my vitamix/blender since I'm allergic to nuts just with sunflower seeds and canola oil since it doesn't have enough oil on its own. You'd be proud, too, I joined a CSA and we're eating so many veggies now.

2nd week of 20 for Philly was a big step-back week after 6 weeks or so of climbing finishing with a 5 mile race.
