Another reason I didn't push over 16 yesterday. lol!

Was the 20 before or after it got cold?

Before, in the morning.

Yeah, I missed my opportunity yesterday.  Had to do 8 this morning with a wind chill of mid-20's.  pale

My body did.  I didn't know I hit the alarm off until 2 hours later.  Guess I needed the sleep more.

Boston Training Week 10

Wednesday, 2/12

12xhills, total 8 miles.

This would be my last hill repeat in this cycle. Next week, I will start Intevals and continue to increase intensity of the Tempos.

Thursday, 2/13

4 recovery run

Got up late and had only enough time for 4. The plan was 5-6 easy, but feeling soreness and tightness on my hip and legs, 4 slow recovery was just about right.

I am glad I apparently worked hard yesterday.

Don't have time for another short run today. I am fine with that.

Friday, 2/14

10 with 5 between 6:45-6:30, progressing well as expected.

Boston Training Week 10

Saturday, 2/15

AM: 4 miles recovery

Was planning to run double digit, but right knee suddenly had a lock/slightly dislocated feeling that hurt, very very lightly, if I ran. Tried, but couldn't walked it off after half mile, I decided to call it off.

Noon: 3 recovery

So I jogged during DD's soccer warmup, just to make sure I didn't have anything serious with the knee. Nope.

Sunday, 2/16

20

I felt a little with the right knee at the beginning. With only 47 miles last week, I really wanted this 20, but was understandably nervous. Luckily after mile 5-6, I didn't feel anything. Very released when I finished with no instance.

Weekly: 72

For the week, 1 hill repeats, 1 tempo, 2 20s, nothing to complain.

Boston Training Week 11

Monday, 2/17

11 easy + strength workout

No work day. Wanted 20, but started the run very tired and some issue, knee again I don't recall now lol! ,  at the start. Anyway, I decided not to be greedy with the instances over the weekend. So I finished the run and did some strength workout at home.


Tuesday, 2/18

Rest

This was a real needed rest instead of laziness. I felt rest worked better than a recovery run or any cross training at the day.

Wednesday, 2/19

Interval, overal 7 miles.

I started a little late and didn't feel warmuped well when I arrived at the track after 3 miles jogging on the street. But I was running out of the time. So instead of jumping into the workouts, I did


  1. 5 strides: stride on the straight and recovery on the curl.
  2. 3x800(2:43,2:48,2:53) with 400 recovery.
  3. 1x400(1:21).


I typically like to have minimal 6 repeats for interval. I was targeting 90 seconds lap, and was apparently a little too fast. But I was not worried. I hadn't done intervals for a long long time and some time to adapt was normal.

Thursday, 2/20

AM: 8 easy

I may add a short easy run later.

Boston Training Week 11

Saturday, 2/22

20

Nice and easy, nothing wrong except I didn't charge the Garmin correctly again and had to run 15 without watch. So you have to take my words for it.

The weather was really nice, 60-65, sunny. I was quite tired to start, thus brought and ate two GUs.

Sunday, 2/23

8 easy

Really needed a recovery run, but just wanted to make 70 for the week. Calf cramped a little at mile 7 and I had to walk it off for .25 mile during mile 8.

I switched the 20 cause DD had soccer game at 11. Really good game. They missed 3 chances. The parents were very happy with the progress the team had made.

Weekly: 70

Don't worry about the number, just watch how much looser your clothes feel.  Now, get back outside before that cold front shows up.

Boston Training Week 12

Monday, 2/24

2 recovery, plus strength workout

I started reverse crunch, and side planks. If front plank worked wonder for me, side plank should too, right?

The reason I did only 2 was I started cramping. Was planning for 12, oh well. But the rest was much needed.

Tuesday, 2/25

4 easy

Still feeling tired, nothing bad, all good responsive training stress.

Wednesday, 2/26

Interval day, after 4 miles warmup and 3 strides, the target was 90 seconds/lap, 6x800, 400 jog recovery. I also decided not to look at the watch at the first lap like I typically do:


  1. 2:59
  2. 2:58
  3. 3:03
  4. 3:00
  5. 2:59
  6. 2:57


Then, after 1 lap jog, I did another 400, 1:24. Overall 9 miles.

Couldn't be happier.

Tired is to be expected sometimes, Jerry.  And I can relate.  I did finish my workout last night (4 x 7 min @ 10K pace), but boy I was tired this morning. I really didn't have the energy last night, and I fell asleep around 9 am only to sleep right through my alarm and wake up at 8 am!  Our bodies are telling us something, Jerry.  Keep up the good work.  And keep doing those planks.

Boston Training Week 12

Thursday, 2/27

AM: 8 easy

Noon: 30 minutes easy on stairmaster, pullups(10+5), a little dumbbell, and calf stretch.

Stairmaster seems to work on different muscles than running on hills and be a little easier on my calves. I did it because TM was not available.

WTD: 26.2

Tempo tomorrow.
