I agree difference between 78 or 82 miles won't matter. I'd like to see 80 but I'd have to run 8 easy tomorrow morning or split it up like 5 and 3 which rather just do 6 in am and enjoy friday evening off! PLay it by ear!

Time/Weather: 6:00am - 68 95% humidity

Training: 6 easy

Goal: recover recover did i say recover

Results:
6 @ 9:40 HR 131

Notes:
Soupy out there today but for 6 easy it is no issue. After two very hard days of running felt good to take it easy. HR was lowest ever for 6 miles 131 pace was on the slower side 9:40 only because first mile was 10:20. Took a good mile to get the legs oiled up so I don't
freeze like Mr. Tin Man!

I was going to run 4 later in day but decided against it just now. I will still hit 80 for the week and let my body recover from some hard running past few days as Sat and Sun are hard runs again.

Upcoming
Saturday is going to be 11 miles Ill do 8 @ GA followed by 10x100 strides then 1 mile cool down.
Sunday 20 with hopefully enough in me to do 3-5 @ MP. I'd like to take it to the boardwalk see what the weather brings.

Hi Kenny. I don't frequent the blogs much, but I remembered your post about your wife's Napa anniversary-gift. So, I thought I'd drop in to let you know that my wife and I just registered for Napa this evening. This one's been on my list since we were in Napa last year, and I did a 10 miler on part of the marathon route. Hope to see you in wine country!

Time/Weather: 6:15am 70 degrees, 93 % humidity

Training: 11 miles 9@ GA followed by 10x100m strides

Goal: ended up being staying in LSD Zone land

Results:
7:51 pace HR 157

Notes:
This was on the easy side as my HR was in LSD zone. This is also 3-9 bpm lower thenpast GA runs. Seem to be peaking at the right time. Next cycle I can certainly bring down my paces a bit as I stay in the zones. Overall legs felt very good & strides helped to clean the pipes out!. Tomorrow is my last 20 total of 5 in 14 weeks giving me 80 for the week. Will do a fast finish maybe last 3-5 @ MP then it is taper time.

Upcoming
Tomorrow will be 20 maybe 3-5@MP or some type of progression depending on how feel. It is going to very humid "again".

Post  Kenny B. on Sun Sep 25, 2011 10:53 am

Time/Weather: 6:15am 68-73 very humid 93-87%

Training: 20 w/last 5 @ MP

Goal: Keep HR below 160 first 15 miles then nail last 5 @ 7:30.

Results:
first 15@ 8:21 super low 152, last 5 @ 7:29 HR 171 going up to 175

Notes:
Hit the boardwalk for 20 miles w/ last 5 @ MP. A bit dark out for the first few miles which was nice! First 15 @ LSD went great. Then I went into MP pace at the same time the sun came out. Definitely was a work out at this point avg 7:29 HR 171 avg. going up to 175. Although no elevation at beach my legs were asking for some hills. Went over 2 bridges which I enjoyed the break!

Overall 157 HR right in my zone pace 8:08. Finished feeling fine probably one of the easiest 20's to date and the last of this cycle. Taper time!

I can say the last 5 were not easy! I did not feel I could maintain this pace for 26.2 but then again I am coming off some peak weeks of running and a tough day yesterday! Also add the 70 degrees and 90% humidity. Certainly no judge of where I am at in training.

Upcoming
Tomorrow is a day off as I Start a minor taper for 3 weeks until Hartford will do 62 miles just under my avg this training of 65.

Off today and took my daughter for surgery taking out her tonsils and adenoids. All went well and she is now relaxing with only discomfort she seems pretty good right now.

Tomorrow 10 total GA w/10x100's. Feels odd not to run today! But good purpose to recover. Legs actually feel fine after yesterday's 20 and tough 80 mile week.

So, how do you predict race performance taking into account how the last 5 were not easy?

Good question! Based on many other runs especially when I nailed 17 w/12 @ MP on a step back week few weeks ago and my HM pace of 7:04 predicts 7:30 and hopefully with cooler weather my HR will be in the zone it needs to be in. Faith goes along way also.

Kenny just stopping in and trying to catch up on all that has been going on with you. Things are still looking as solid as ever and good luck on the 5k.

I'm really impressed by all the shorter races you have done in this marathon build up cycle. Good way to be able to get the tempo runs done, I might have to think about that for future training cycles. The only question for me is can I only do it as a tempo run or will I try to race it??

I race them! HM I raced maybe a bit soft but still raced. Today's 5k I raced! Rather not enter them just for a training run!

Hell then more power to you Kenny B! That makes you more the man, I don't know if I would be able to handle my training and race as much as you. See that is the great thing about running, we all can approach are training and racing different from one another and there were is no right or wrong way per se. It's all about trying different things and finding the best approach for ourselves.

So how did the 5k go today?

Re: KenZen - Running Alone Ain't So Lonely

Post  Kenny B. on Sun Oct 02, 2011 10:32 am

Sunday Long Run.

7:00am - Beautiful morning to run 17 miles in the trails - mid 50's no
wind! Happen to run with someone I just met at trails who live in my
development who recognized me as the "runner". Normally don't run with
people but we kept pace together for the 17. I knew I could be running
LSD's now at 8:15 but first half was a bit slower. Last 7 where 8:20 or
less avg. 8:26 w/HR of only 150 lowest ever for this type of
run/distance. Overall it felt a bit on the easier side which means I am
in a good place for Hartford in two weeks. This is also coming off a 5k
race yesterday!

This gives me 60 for the first week of taper. I think its a bit lower then I'd like as my avg week is 65 but with the 5k race yesterday it should work out well.

This coming week should hit around 47 with 1 day of good speed work and others GA easy and some strides.
