Second half week 1

Well that was supposed to be easy!  Not quite unfortunately.

Friday 10/16/15 - REST DAY - slept in until 7am - woo!

Saturday 10/17/15 - 12 long

Wanted to to 8:00-8:30 - WHAT A FAIL!  After 3 miles had to stop and turn off the 'slow alert' on my garmin watch as I just frankly could not keep up.  It felt harder than the 6 tempo I did on Thursday.  So after stopping, resetting my watch, and walking for a couple minutes I started back up. Got about 5.25 miles further before I thankfully hit a light and got to stop for about a minute.  Another 1.25 miles and I was done - that and I had to go to my daughter's soccer game.  So got 9.5-ish miles in and was pretty toast.  Went to the game, sat around for about 30 minutes, and then pounded out the remaining 2.5 miles.  That was as ugly as I run as I've had in a long time.  Wow.  Actually ended up relatively proud of myself for sucking it up and getting the miles in - so there's that.

Sunday 10/18/25 - 6 easy 

Well what a difference a day makes!  Had all alerts off on my watch and just cruised for about 6.25 miles and ended up around 8:23mm - ridiculous.  


Well finished off the week ~45 miles - which is about twice of the previous week.  Other than Saturday's debacle the runs went well.  Never would have imagined several weeks ago that the fast runs would go better than the long run.  Happy to have this first week behind me!

Next Week

Well it doesn't get any easier next week - looks like:
Monday: 6 easy
Tuesday: 4x1200m speed
Wednesday: 6 easy
Thursday: 7 tempo
Friday: rest
Saturday: 10 long
Sunday: 8 easy

On the surface this looks reasonable and doable but that's why we do the runs...  Have GOT to find my correct pace for the tempo run or I'll be toast.


  1. Great article by the great author, it is very massive and informative but still preaches the way to sounds like that it has some beautiful thoughts described so I really appreciate this article. Best Garmin watch straps service provider.

  2. I’m the best in writing a thesis, and I don’t worry at all, I found a research papers for sale online, a term paper to order, it will be written competently and efficiently, which is important

  3. You're doing great with your running progress! Keep pushing yourself, and even when it gets tough, remember to stay consistent. Just like your dedication to running, remember to stay focused and committed to take my nursing class for me. It may seem challenging at times, but with perseverance, you'll achieve your goals! You've got this!
