<p>Another week in the books.  I hope you are all injury free and feeling strong despite continued heat!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I was able to pop back up into the 40 mile range.  Was hoping for closer to 50, but work/life schedules wouldn't allow for that.  I hope to hit mid 50s this week.</p>

<p>Here is my breakdown:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>M: rest</p>
<p> </p>
<p>T: 6 easy (9:19)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>W: 8.3 (9:13) - had to go after work and it was warm and soupy</p>
<p> </p>
<p>R: 11.2 (9:32) - It was warm/soupy and I was slow, but glad to actually start logging decent miles</p>
<p> </p>
<p>F: rest - planned to get in 5-6 easy, but too busy with work and then had a birthday dinner date with DH after work.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sa: 15 (9:26) - again it was hot and slow, but happy to get the miles</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Su: 2 and change - planned 5-6 again, but once I got out there I got stressed out about how much work I had to do before we left for our mini-vacation to the Wisconsin Dells.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Total:  43</strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am hoping to bump up into the 50s next week.  Hopefully work/life will cooperate.  I am happily down a couple of pounds.  I'd like to continue edging toward race weight - we'll see how that goes once I start boosting the mileage and becoming continuously ravenous.  :) </p>

<p>Nice bump, runninlaw, and good job with the weight.  I gained 1 lb in July despite a mileage PR but I am pretty much where I want to be.  I could stand to start focusing on eating better though, more whole grains less fried stuff.  I hear you on work/life stuff, getting running in this week is going to be challenging with a Cubs game tonight, office bowling party tomorrow night and day off at an amusement park Friday on top of the regular work week.    Here's the past week,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>M: 6.7 Easy</p>
<p> </p>
<p>T: 9, including 3 x (800, 600, 400, 200) with 90 sec rest and 3 min in between sets.  Was happy with paces.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>W: 7.75 Easy</p>
<p> </p>
<p>R: 12.25 Medium long run</p>
<p> </p>
<p>F: 11.4 Mostly easy with some MP segments.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sa: 6 Easy </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Su: 15 with about 12 at MP - ran with a group whose easy pace is pretty close to my MP.  Next week is twenty and I will probably run with a different group to make sure I don't go out too fast.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Total:  68</strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I might try a 5k or 10k next Saturday, gotta decide soon.  Hope everyone is enjoying their training and have a great week!</p>

<p>Low mileage week for me, thanks to replacing Saturday's long run with a long bike ride + short run.  Also, after a week with 3 two-a-days, I took Sunday off to recoup.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>M - Rest</p>
<p>T - 6 (3 x 1 mile at 7:14-7:24, hilly)</p>
<p>W - 5 (+700m swim)</p>
<p>Th - 8 (3.8 AM, 4.2 PM)</p>
<p>F - 4.8</p>
<p>Sa - 3.7 (+ 41 mile bike ride) </p>
<p>Su - Weights only</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Total: 27.5 plus 41 bike</p>
<p> </p>
<p>5 Days and counting until the first sprint Tri!</p>
<p> </p>

<p>Last week of marathon "pre-season" for me. It wasn't a bad ramp-up all told. 32 miles running, 45 miles cycling, 2 track races last Wednesday. The track times were OK -- 5:44 for the mile, 11:29 for the 3000m -- neither are close to my PRs. But I did train through the meet (I even did a double that day) and haven't done any training specific to really short distances. I had a nice bike ride Saturday, my longest in nearly 2 years at 35.2 miles. TimR, you'll be familiar with parts of this route...from where I live in Fairfax, west on the W&OD through Reston, Herndon and into Loudoun County, almost to Dulles Airport...turned around just a little short of it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Next week I'll start reporting daily runs just like everyone else, since now they will all count. ;) Long run of 16 planned for this weekend. Tomorrow night, I've got one more summer 5k to run...my club championship race. Hopefully I'll go out with a bang.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>RIL - sounds like you are right on track. And remember food is fuel.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Zrun - you sure rack up miles quickly. Impressive</p>
<p> </p>
<p>swallen - good luck on the tri, that 41-mile spin should have you ready for a sprint, that's for sure!</p>
