Week In Review 8.24.15 to 8.30.15

Monday am: 3 miles around Windridge including a hill loop.

Monday pm: 4.25 miles with Joe and Will in Burlington.

Tuesday: 8.5 mile run through the Intervale with striders in the last mile plus arms.

Wednesday: 7.55 miles. 3 by (30, 60, 90 seconds) uphill. Still feeling crappy.

Thursday am: 7.2 miles with my HR monitor on. Average of 135.

Thursday pm: 3.25 miles with the team.

Friday: 10 miles with 15 minutes continuous tempo via HR. Had a hard time getting my heart rate up high enough. Legs in the evening.

Saturday: 7.3 mile recovery run.

Sunday: 15 mile long run on the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail. What an amazing place I knew NOTHING about!

Total Miles: 66

Finally got a decent week of training in, although I have yet to sleep through the night without a coughing fit. It’s my first week off and on a truly training focused schedule so I’m getting used to sleeping 10 hours a night and resting as much as possible, but I’m excited for the impact of some decent rest and recovery!

Phase 3 starts tomorrow and training gets serious quickly with 16 by 400 on the docket for Tuesday and 5 by mile at Tempo for Thursday. I’ll do my long run on Friday this week as we have a wedding in the Adirondacks over the weekend but I’m looking forward to getting some running in up there as well.

    16 x 400? That sounds truly awful. I am not sure you could have picked a worse week as far as weather goes to be stepping up your training. I love running in the Adirondacks, hilly and hard, but the scenery makes the effort worthwhile.

      I know, it’s going to be hot this week!!! At least I can do my workout in the cool(est) part of the morning? I like to think about 16 by 400 as 4 by (4 x 400). It’s the only way I can “swallow” the idea. I’m so excited for the Adirondacks, though. The wedding is actually at the training camp where Will went in college, so I’m looking forward to him showing me all his summer training routes.
