Training log - week ending 5/11/2014

This week was 56.5 miles of running and 2,500 yards of swimming  -- training log is here.  

Not too much to report here.  Just running easy, and waiting for the PRP to kick in.  I am happy to note that I did succeed in slowing down my easy runs.  Substantially.    Look at all those 8:5x runs!  I’m pretty tootin proud of this (we’ll just ignore the fact that the increased humidity plus the fatigue of a work trip contributed).  


Monday:   In the morning, 4 miles easy (8:28) and 2500 yards of swimming, including a workout of 4x100 on 2:00 followed by 10x50 on 70 (Splits were: 1:39.7, 1:41.6, 1:42.5, 1:43.7; and 50.5, 50.1, 49.0, 48.2, 48.4, 49.3, 50.1, 48.6, 48.6, 49.5), followed by some foam rolling.  Dragged luggage around airport midday.

Tuesday:  In the morning, 11 miles easy (8:50 pace), followed by some foam rolling.

I googled "turning 40"
and got this image.
Perhaps it's for my joints?
Wednesday:  In the morning, 8 miles easy (8:48 pace) and a yoga class (did 4.5 miles before yoga, and 3.5 after), followed by foam rolling.

Thursday:   In the morning, 10 miles easy (8:39) followed by foam rolling.  Dragged luggage around airport in evening.

Friday:  3 miles easy (8:17) plus a yoga class; foam rolling in the afternoon.  Also turned 40 (seems like I should note that somewhere). 

Saturday:   6.5 miles easy (8:53) then a yoga class, then another 1.5 miles back home (8:41).  Foam rolling in afternoon.

Sunday:   12.5 miles (8:09), followed by a yoga class.  Foam rolling at night.
