Week ending May 9, 2010

5/3 - 45 minutes AM (6 miles), 65 minutes PM (9 miles)

5/4 - 40 minutes AM (5 miles), workout PM (2 miles warm up, 6x800 + 1x200 @ 10K pace w/ 200m recovery) (2:34.1, 61 recovery, 2:34.5, 64 recovery, 2:36.0, 67 recovery, 2:34.3, 67 recovery, 2:35.9, 64 recovery, 2:34.7, 65 recovery, 31.5 for 200m, 2+ miles cool down. Total of 5000m work in 16:01. This was a total crap workout. It was supposed to be 12 x 800 but I felt like garbage as soon as I started and really wanted to quit after 2 reps but managed to at least get in 6 before quitting. It was hot out, my legs felt dead before I started, I'm tired...bunch of excuses. At the end of the day I just had a crappy workout. I haven't had many so I won't dwell on it. I knew I would be better off with another recovery day and then a workout tomorrow but I'm traveling tomorrow and won't have any time to run so I took a shot at it today. I didn't even manage to run my goal 10K pace for the 6 that I did. I was hoping to be at about 2:31-32 for the reps.) (8 miles)

5/5 - 60 minutes (8 miles)

5/6 - 90 minutes (13 miles)

5/7 - 86 minutes ( 2 x 3 miles tempo w/ 1 miles in between) (13 miles)

5/8 - 87 minutes (12 miles)

5/9 - off (Mother's Day...first day off since Christmas)

Summary: 74 miles for the week which wasn't bad considering I was in Phoenix for work.
