Cilantro’s Training Log – 3.24.2013

I completed my last long run before my mid-cycle rest week, and while my runs have been pretty great, I am ready for an easier week.

This week’s runs:

Sunday: 9 miles, recovery. After my supa-fast 20 miles on Saturday, I was beat up. These miles were painful.

Monday: 10 miles, 6 miles hills. Love. These. Runs.

Tuesday: 4 miles, easy.

Wednesday: 9 miles, 7 miles speed intervals. I feel like I’m getting fast, y’all (at least fast for me)!

Thursday: 11 miles, 8 mile temp run (in an hour)!

Friday: 6 miles, easy

Saturday: 13 miles, long run

Total: 62 miles

And here’s an update of my training so far this cycle:


And the super-cool graph:


This last week was planned to be my mid-cycle rest week, but since I’ll be traveling next week, I decided it would be better to take the rest when I was already in that mode.

I can’t wait.

  1. So I’ve been reading your training logs and posts for ages now and it just occurred to me that you’re a fellow Seattlite. I feel very dumb for not having picked up on that before.
