Week 2 of Training... Week 1 of working!

Last week went as well as can be expected with it being my first week back AND a crazy, hectic moving week. This next week is my first week working downtown and I've been warned there will be some overtime. Hoping to stay consistent with the training and rest regardless!

Sunday- 7.24.11
Easy: 5M
  • Surface: Gravel/dirt path at Crosspoint Church
  • Total Time: 38:06 (7:37 AP)
  • Pace Progression: 8:21, 8:07, 7:36, 7:10, 6:50
  • Comments: 3rd night in a row of less than 5 hours of sleep... I'm trying a sleep-aid tonight to see if it will help. Definitely having a difficult time finding somewhere to run here.
Supplemental Work: 25xAround the World Core, Back Routine in PM

Monday- 7.25.11

  • Total Time: 35:42 (7:09 AP)
  • Pace Progression: 7:33, 7:20, 7:01, 6:54, 6:54
  • Comments: Great place to run once the sun is up, just not a good idea at 5AM. Perfect morning for a run though... felt much more awake and fresh.

Strides: 4x100m
Supplemental Work: Form Drills, 2x30" H-Core + Myrtyl Routine in PM

Tuesday- 7.26.11
Long: 8M

  • Pace Progression: Averaged 8.2 for first 4 miles, 8.5 for next 3, 9.0 for last mile
  • Comments: Never ever try to do a long run on a treadmill without headphones or a friend! Other than boredom, not a bad run at all. Right arch and was achy but nothing bad.
Supplemental Work: Strength Session

Wednesday- 7.27.11
Rest Day.

Thursday- 7.28.11
Easy: 5M 40:00 
  • Surface: Loose dirt path at Memorial Park
  • Total Time: 40:00
  • Pace Progression: Unknown
  • Comments: No Garmin reception at the park, hence the adjustment from 5M to 40'. Enjoyed running on soft surfaces, though. Feeling slightly sore this afternoon so maybe I got in more quality than usual on the strides?!

Strides: 4x100m
Supplemental Work: Form Drills, 2x30" H-Core Routine + Myrytl Routine in PM

Friday- 7.29.11
Workout: 3M easy + 8x1'fast, 2'easy
  • Surface: Memorial Park dirt loop
  • Comments: Great workout. I felt very strong, powerful, and controlled on the surges; and haven't felt beat up or sore in the least during the day. Excited for future workouts!

Saturday- 7.30.11
Easy: 5M

  • Surface: Dirt path in George Bush Park
  • Total Time: 37:01 (7:24 AP)
  • Pace Progression: 8:02, 7:31, 7:26, 7:05, 6:57
  • Comments: Aside from some stomach issues (had to make a pit stop in the bushes about 4M into the run!) this was a very nice run. I'm so excited about how strong I'm feeling on these runs. I'm finally to the point where I look up (not down) and run upright and tall instead of with weak form.
Supplemental Work: 25 x Around the World Core, Strength Session in PM

Week 2 Total Mileage- 35M (1 long, 1 workout, 4 easy)
