The wife & I are in San Diego this weekend for a family wedding & I am digging the vibe down here in SoCal! As far as training, this week has been a “bounce back” week compared to last week. I felt tired and drained last week, now I feel much better and ran more miles at a good quality. Also, Week 7 marks the halfway point to race day on March 26th, so glad I have made it to this point and still feeling fresh. So here is this week’s log:
Monday: 5 miles easy
Tuesday: 7 miles Track – 1 each of 400m, 800m, 1200m, 1600m. Recovery 400m in between sets
Wednesday: 6 miles moderate
Thursday: 6 miles moderate
Saturday: *12-mile long run @ 8:36 min per mile pace
Total Miles: 36 Miles
Weekly Miles Tracker
1: 20 – Base Training
2: 15 miles
3: 22 miles
4: 28 – Real fun begins!
5: 37 miles
6: 28 miles – start of the hills
7: 36 miles
*Long Run: From our San Diego hotel, the course was a back & forth to Balboa Park. Wow, the park is beautiful and can see why people like visiting here. There were a decent amount of steep hills throughout the route, so last week’s hill training prepped me for all the elevation changes. Stunning park!!
Mood: Much better than last week when I felt trashed by all the hills. Weekly mileage is creeping closer to the 40-mile mark, so I expect to go over in the coming weeks. Maybe the last few days in San Diego made the training much more enjoyable?!?!?
