Training for Life the Easy Way

Training for this week has been a high mileage but base building week.  Unlike last week when I was going into cardiac arrest (2 double digit runs and 2 races!) this week was all about long and easy miles.  High mileage?  Yes?  Easy miles?  Yes.  Lots of stretching and foam rolling for injury prevention…ugh that was the hardest part. 

Moving on:

Sunday: 5.5 mile recovery (after Saturday’s 18+ miler)
Monday: 8.3 miles easy and strength training (finally).
Tuesday:   AM: 7.5 with a friend (9:40 pace) PM: 3.25 with my eight year old friend (8:25 pace) Favorite runs of the week!
Wednesday: Around town 9.4 easy
Thursday: 10.3 Progressive-My fastest run of the week.  I went from 8:30-7:00 minute miles throughout the run.
Friday: 8.3 Recovery easy
Saturday: 12 miles easy before traveling


Total: 64.6

So a bit less than week  (64.8 ha).  Much easier miles though.  Next week I’m not sure how it will go with Christmas and being away from home.  (Do I say that every week?)  It’s because I don’t really have any set plans but to live the dream and enjoy running.

Also if you feel so inclined to vote for me for most humorous blogger (LOLZ) for runchat,I wouldn’t mind in the slightest.  Tell all your friends…because me telling my friends…is what I’m doing now.   What are these real life friends you talk about?

Since this post has no photos enjoy this one from last year of dad and I running together.


Question for you:
