Training log - Week ending 3/12/17

This week was 46 miles of running,  13 "miles" of pool-running, and 2000 yards of swimming -- training log is here.

Quick place holder for the past week of training.  Last weekend was tightly scheduled: race->concert->afterparty  on Saturday, and then run->visit by the "in-laws" (quotes because we're not married)->work.  Fit the race report in there somewhere, but didn't get around to the weekly until now.

This week was similar to last week - workout on Tuesday, 5K on Saturday.  Since the 5K was on Saturday, I just kept stuff easy between the two hard days.  I did wear more clothes for the 5K, and I thought it was the better choice.

Next week is my goal half.  I'm targeting the NYC half, but I may reroute to Shamrock (held on the same day in Virginia Beach) depending on how the weather forecast plays out.  I don't need to make a final decision until Friday.


Monday: In the morning, yoga and 6 "miles" pool-running.  Foam rolling at night.

: In the morning, 10.5 miles including a workout of  6x800 in 3:03, 3:00, 2:57, 2:55, 2:54, 2:51.  Followed with injury prevention work and 1000 yards recovery swimming.  Foam roller at night.

Wednesday:  In the morning, 9.5 miles (9:18), followed by drills and strides and upper body weights/core.  Sports massage at night.

Thursday: In the morning, 7 "miles" pool-running.  Foam rolling at night.

Friday: In the morning, 5 miles very easy (8:40)  Followed with foam rolling .

Saturday:  In the morning, 3 miles warm-up, 5K race in 19:52, and then 3 mile cool-down, followed by 1000 yards recovery swimming and foam rolling.
