Training log - Week ending 8/28/2022

This week was 57 miles of running, 1000 yards of swimming and 30 "miles" of pool-running -- training log is here.

Just two workouts this week, but I was happy with both of them.  The Wednesday workout was in decent weather; the Saturday workout less so, but both went well.  I was particularly happy with how my heart rate/perceived effort stayed in the right place on Saturday's run - that hasn't been the case in previous attempts at that workout.  

I'm still a lot slower than I would like to be, but isn't that true for all of us?  At least the trend is the right direction.


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: 10 miles very easy (9:52), drills/strides and upperbody weights/core.  Foam rolling at night.

Wednesday:  12 miles, including 2x(2K, 1200, 1600) at 10 mile race effort plus 400 a bit faster.  Splits were 8:52, 5:13, 6:54; 8:38, 5:08, 6:48; and 97.   Recoveries of 2:3x-2:4x within the sets and 5:14/5:40 after each set.  Followed with leg strengthwork and 500 yards recovery swimming.  Foam rolling at night.
Thursday: 12 "miles" pool-running and streaming yoga.  Foam rolling in evening

Friday: 12 miles (9:42), drills/strides, and upper body weights/core.   Foam rolling at night.

Saturday: 17 miles, including a marathon effort workout of 2x5 miles with 1 mile easy in between (paces were 7:37 and 7:34).  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.
