One Week Down

So I made the training plan, but ran nothing like what it was supposed to be.  The training plan was for some hill repeats, Fartlek, and some runs.  What I did was some 400s at 1:20s and 800s in low 3:05 on the track (Smoked it). Some mile repeats at 7:05, 7:03, 8:33 pace. And a long run of 7 miles at 9:00 pace.  I did get in some weights.  So it was a total of almost 17 miles.  

I have more of the same planned for this week but I have stared off with two BLANKS in the morning.  I did manage 3 miles yesterday evening.  I guess I will make a long one or something on Thursday, a run on Friday, and not sure about Saturday.  I might have to make a run on Sunday just to get some miles.  

I have a plan but don't see that it is remotely being followed.  I think I need to go back to the drawing board.

20 Weeks Till The Louisiana Half Marathod

This is Why I Run
The Louisiana Half Marathon is 20 weeks away!  The training program will be begin but I have to figure out what the program is going to be.  I am revisiting my "Brain Training for Runner" and might combine it with "FIRST" training.  Some of the other runners will do the "FIRST" training so it might be easier to get something done vs. doing it by myself.  We shall see how that goes.

3 x 800M at the Track

Untitled by koonarse at Garmin Connect - Details

WOW is all that I can say about my track work.  I have never run this fast for 800s.  3:06 / 3:00 / 3:09.  Not sure if it is that I am lighter, been going to Boot Camp twice a week, or just because.  It is HOT and HUMID so I can imagine what I would run if it was not.  Training for the Louisiana Half will start next month...

Track Work Out 6 x 400m

I went to the track this morning.  It was nice and humid.  We completed 6 x 400m with a range 1:29 to 1:23.  It is amazing how 5 seconds feels like the difference between just making it around and really pushing it around.  Last week I ranged in the 1:27 ish rate with a 1:23 fast.  I hit 1:23 twice this week.

I need to establish a training plan for the Louisiana 1/2 Marathon.

Saturday Run

Untitled by koonarse at Garmin Connect - Details

This is the first run on a Saturday in a while that was over 6 miles or better yet, a run on Saturday.  It was the first time I have run this way.  I was on my feet for close to 1:20 for 8.5 miles.  It was not too hot and a very nice day.  For the week I ran a total of 25 miles in four runs.  The best one was my Tuesday run for 7 miles.  I was able to keep up with the front of the group to the park and not feel bad.  I am going to attempt it again Tuesday.
