I ended up having to cut down Saturday's long run and I bagged yesterday's run. It's a bit hard sometimes to judge just how much I can push during an up portion of the training cycle and I hit the fatigue wall on Saturday morning, about 2 days earlier than I would have liked.<br><br>
So this week's recovery week started 2 days ago. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> I'll try to run about 20 easy miles this week and hopefully get a 30 mile week in next week.

I'm on target so far, but my long run this weekend will be a tough one.<br><br>
M - weights<br>
T - 5 miles (hills)<br>
W - boot camp and step classes<br>
T - 6 miles<br>
F - 3 miles tempo and yogilates class<br>
S - boot camp and step classes<br>
S - toning class and 11 miles<br><br>
My legs are going to be dead on Sunday for that 11-miler. Oh well.

Today, spin class in the morning, and a run in the afternoon with the idea of getting my max heart rate... which I never did, and I plan to involve HRM training during this year. Tested twice, both times got 190, which is a bit over the calculated formulas. I have a starting point now, and I also got a speed session.<br><br>
Objectives for this week... a 7mi run, some swimming, some weights, the usual...

I'm coming off of a fall marathon so I had a good base going. The last 10 weeks to now have been 33-36 miles, and I am going to try to stick to that for a few more weeks then up it to the low 40s. No speed work for another month. Then I will start adding in some midweek tempo runs.<br><br>
So, for the time being my weeks have pretty much looked like this...<br><br>
M - ~5<br>
TU - OFF<br>
W - ~7<br>
TH - ~5<br>
F - ~5<br>
SA - OFF<br>
SU - ~12<br><br>
Thanks.

Welcome MrPHinNJ!<br><br>
I went out for my planned 10 on Monday and had to cut it short at 5 due to some pain in my left calf/knee. I took Tuesday off, and did 5 today to test it. No pain! I had a pretty nasty cramp in that part of my calf coming down some stairs last week that bothered me for a few days, so I'm wondering if I just aggravated that. 5-8 tomorrow, depending on how I feel, off Friday, 10-15 on Saturday. So much for my big mileage week!<br><br>
This is the last week of Daniels Phase I (basebuilding) for me. Assuming my calf holds up, I start speedwork next week. Ugh, long intervals. I also have a 10K test race planned for Sunday the 27th.<br><br>
Good luck with your trail race this weekend, <b>Jill</b>! I'm really excited to see how it goes for you, considering how strong your training has been lately.

Thanks <b>Kris</b>.<br>
I'm not sure that my time will be what you're expecting because I believe that this is a fairly technical trail and I'm just going out to have some fun. However, I do have a 10k race Feb. 3rd that I plan on racing as best I can.<br><br>
Take care of that knee. By the way, what will be your highest mileage before your HM?

Today, pretty interesting run. Since I found my HR strap, and did the MHR test a couple of days ago, I figured I should use it more. I had a 7 miler scheduled, which is my longest since my marathon in November. All my "long" runs have been close to 10:00/mile, and that's what I would've done this time. But I decided to go just by the HRM, don't look at the pace. I went at the top of Z3 (aerobic), and the pace slowly drifted from around 9:10 to 9:50. Then at mile 5, I decided to go to low Z4 (anaerobic) for a bit, and the pace was about 8:40. Maybe I just wasted my time for 2 months with those slow long runs.... And it felt very easy today, although I haven't run this far in a while....<br><br>
Actually, I was listening to a couple tri-talk podcasts on the run, and both spoke about periodization. David's message was that for 4-8 weeks a year, you must drastically reduce volume, and lower the intensity and frequency, and this will not have a major effect on fitness, but will be very beneficial for the next season. At least I don't feel guilty now...<br><br>

7 easy this evening. Today seemed a little colder than it has been lately, but once I got warmed up it was quite comfortable.

Mon: 3.25 miles easy and some weights<br>
Tuesday: 4.5 miles, hill repeats<br>
Wednesday: 5 miles, easy<br>
Thursday: 3 quickish miles after work (dinner plans)<br>
Friday: 5 or 6 easy, weights<br>
Saturday: 12

5.4 this evening. Snow was coming down pretty hard. It was a wet snow and stuck to the bottom of my shoes. I had to stomp and scrape the snow loose every so often.

5 this evening. I've been running everything easy for the last couple of months but for some reason I got a couple of miles in and felt like kicking it up a notch. I ended up running the last 2 miles @ 7:45. It's been a long time since I've gone under 8 mm in a training run. Felt real good. Off until Sunday.

Great job <b>MrPh</b> - glad your run felt so good.<br><br><b>Theia</b> - why are you out? You probably said why in the 30's thread, but I missed it.<br><br>
Ok - I'm supposed to run 12 tomorrow. Just realized I've only run that far twice - once in a training run for the 10 mile in the fall. And then the other time last spring - during the only HM I ran. Should be fun. I'm gonna try it outside I decided (- 3 temp; - 25 windchill!) I think with the sun out that should be better than the TM. We'll see.
