Training Journal: 01/21 - 01/26/2013

Saturday, January 26, 2013

Total Miles: 22.04

Monday
Time: 60 min
HR Alert: 125 (68% HRMax)
Location: Gym Track
Distance: 5.7 miles
Ave Pace: 10:29

Splits: 9:41 / 10:05 / 10:03 / 11:00 / 10:54 / 11:22

Notes: I felt much better today than yesterday, but I ran "out of gas" fairly quickly toward the end of the run, so obviously I'm not 100% yet. But headed in the right direction. I'll just stick to my 60 minute runs until I feel back to full strength. With luck I'll be able to do a long run on Sunday.

Tuesday
Rest

Wednesday
Time: 60 min
HR Alert: 125 (68% HRMax)
Location: Gym Track
Distance: 5.9 miles
Ave Pace: 10:11

Splits: 9:32 / 10:01 / 10:17 / 10:40 / 10:28 / 9:58

Notes: Today's run felt much more "normal." I think I'm getting my groove back. Instead of running out of energy toward the end, I actually started feeling stronger. So this run helped mentally, too.

Thursday
Time: 39:49 min
HR Alert: 125 (68% HRMax)
Location: Gym Track
Distance: 4 miles
Ave Pace: 9:57

Splits: 9:35 / 9:47 / 10:08 / 10:17

Notes: Continuing to feel stronger. I had to stop to use the restroom after mile 4, so decided just to end the run at that point. It has been less than 24 hours since Wednesday's run and the pace was pretty fast. Still being a bit cautious.

Friday
Rest

Saturday
Time: 75 min
HR Alert: 125 (68% HRMax)
Location: West Rim Route
Distance: 6.44 miles
Ave Pace: 11:38

Splits: 10:38 / 11:30 / 11:50 / 11:42 / 12:12 / 11:56 / 11:41

Notes: The hills slowed me down a bit. It was very humid and in the upper 60's. I didn't push it, just ran very comfortably. I felt very relaxed and strong.
