Training log - Week ending 8/14/2022

This week was 55 miles of running, 1000 yards of swimming and 30 "miles" of pool-running -- training log is here.

This was a very time crunched and sleep deprived week, hence the short and late report.  

I had two workouts this week.  The first was the Wednesday workout, which was supposed to be 2x(2K,1200, 1600) but got altered since I slept awful and wasn't handling the warm and humid morning well.

The second was a Saturday workout that was a bit of a struggle despite nice weather.   From the start, I just felt short of breath and tired, and the workout was a struggle.   I also can't say that I honestly ran the workout at marathon effort - it felt too hard for that.

That being said, I think there were external, non-running reasons why these workouts went poorly, so I'm just going to write this week off as "at least I did something" and move on.


Monday:  6 mile fartlek on the track (did a few 200s at about 50 seconds each playing with form) and then 6 "miles" of pool-running.   Foam rolling at night.  

Tuesday: 9 miles easy (9:52), upperbody weights/core, 2 miles very easy (9:39).  Foam rolling at night.

Wednesday:  11 miles, including 2K, 1200, 1600 at tempo, 6 short (20 second) hill repeats and then 2x800 at tempo with 200m jog.  Splits were 8:50, 5:17, 7:05 and then 3:38 and 3:34.   Recoveries of 2:45 within the main set and 1:20 between the 800s.  Followed with leg strengthwork and 500 yards recovery swimming.  Foam rolling at night.
Thursday: 12 "miles" pool-running.  Foam rolling in evening

Friday: 10 miles (9:51), drills, and two hill strides.   Foam rolling at night.

Saturday: 17 miles, including a marathon effort workout of 2x5 miles with 1 mile easy in between (paces were 7:33 and 7:36).  Followed with injury prevention work and 500 yards recovery swimming.  Foam rolling at night.

Sunday:  12 "miles" pool-running and streaming yoga.   Foam rolling at night.
