This week was 29 miles of “real running” and 72 “miles” pool running -- training log is here.
Good week overall, but capped off by a meh race (report is here). Oh well. I take the lessons I've learned from it, and move on. After sulking a bit first.
Monday: "12 miles" – 2 hours easy pool-running.
Tuesday: In the morning, my first track intervals workout back. 2 miles easy warm-up; drills and strides; and then 6x800m with 400m jogging recovery – splits were 2:59, 3:00, 3:01, 3:00, 3:02, and 3:01. So right where I wanted them, with the exception of the first (ooops). Felt darn good to be out there, even if my form was breaking down at the end (definitely, 6 was the right number, no more). Followed with "7 miles" of easy pool-running (70 minutes).
In the evening, a weights session with a personal trainer, followed by fancy corporate dinner thing.
Wednesday: In the morning, "14 miles” of easy pool-running (2:20 hours). Yoga class at night.
Thursday: In the morning, 9 miles easy outside (8:33 pace), followed by strength-training and then "5.5 miles" easy pool-running (55 minutes). In the evening, "4.5 more miles" of easy pool-running – 45 minutes.
Friday: In the morning, 5.5 easy miles (8:45 pace) (met up with a group at the conference I attended for a "networking run"), followed by some strides, as well as "12 miles" of easy pool running (2 hours). Pilates class in the afternoon.
Saturday: "7.5 miles" of easy pool-running (1:15 hours).
Sunday: 3 mile warm-up, then 8K race in 33:55 (6:49 pace). Later "9.5" very easy miles pool-running (1:35 hours).
