What’s new this week? The most exciting thing is that I ran my two thousandth mile year-to-date on Friday and a new treadmill came Wednesday.
Monday was easy mile on my favorite route. 10.0mi, 8:25/mi
Tuesday was “Threshold Track Tuesday” again. It rained last night. Track was a little squishy, but dry enough. I ran the Hanson 2x3mi “strength” workout using the Daniel’s VDOT 53 threshold pace of 6:32/mi with 2 minutes rests and cooled down on the track. Turns out those guys from last week were cross country.
9.9mi total: Warmup, 2x3200m@T with 2min rest, cooldown.
Wednesday was easy miles. 10.0mi 8:25/mi. Later, I picked up my new treadmill. It is a Reebok 910 from Costco Online.
Thursday was nice and cold. I went to go run my marathon pace workout on my parents street. I was slightly faster than my target M pace of 6:03 per lap (a lap is 1420m). 1.25mi warmup, 10mi@M (6:52/mi), Talk to my mother, 2 mi cooldown
Friday was easy miles. Gps went on the fritz. It didn’t even have me in the right city. The most exciting thing was running my two thousandth mile year-to-date.
7.4mi in about an hour and a few seconds
Saturday morning was Beautiful. I did my 16 mile long run to Euclid Creek (plus three neighborhood miles). I haven’t been there since July. 16 miles, 7:31/mi
Sunday the rain stopped before sunrise. It was warm and humid, but fine for an easy 7.1 miles, 7:59/mi
Week total: 73.8 miles, total time 9:34
Year-To-Date: 2,025 miles
T-minus Race: 4 weeks till The Columbus Marathon
As always, my complete training logs are on Strava.
