Hey all,<br><br>
Sorry for the late start on the thread this week. I'm on vacation at Disney World with my family. I have done two good runs since I got down here. I've been lax about getting them posted in my log though. Need to go through my Garmin History. Maybe's bed time now.

Hi all,<br><br>
Training is going very well, except my left knee is still bad...dumb knee. It comes and goes, so it's only bothering on some runs.<br><br>
Monday: 6am, 4pm Recovery<br>
Tuesday: 10.1 Tempo--Nailed It, for once!<br>
Wednesday: 15.1 Med. Long<br>
Thursday: 12 Easy<br>
Friday: 6 Recovery<br>
Sat: 5k race, 5.5 w/u & c/d<br>
Sun: 20.25 Long<br><b>Total: 82</b><br><br>
This week is going to be a cutback week, I'm a little fatigued and sore so no speedwork/less mileage. The Miami half is this Sunday, I'm thinking it'll be more of a glorified training run. I haven't run a half in the predicted conditions yet, hot and very humid; so I don't know how much that will effect my pace. Also, my knee will play a big roll. As always, it'll be a game day (or morning) decision.

Nice running - I'm jealous of the warm temperatures. It's been cooooold up here.<br><br>
Last week went as planned:<br><br>
M - xtraining (20 miles cycling, wts)<br>
T - Tempo run 10 miles w/5 @ 15k pace<br>
W - 6 Recovery miles<br>
Th - 9 miles<br>
F - rest, wts<br>
S - 17 miles - longest run since last marathon. Always happy to get this one out of the way. Felt strong and was able to really pick it up the last mile.<br>
Su - 5 recovery miles. I was actually stopped and interviewed by the community paper cause the weather was so bad and they were doing an article about it. They wanted to know what would possess someone to go outdoors and run in a snowstorm w/ -20F windchills <img alt="surprised.gif" src="">. Paper comes out tomorrow, we'll see if I'm in it.<br><br>
Step back week this week.

Last week was a good one for me:<br><br>
M 5<br>
T 4<br>
Th 6<br>
F 5<br>
Sat 9<br>
Sun 3 (cut it short due to stomach issues)<br>
Total 32<br><br>
All were easy runs, and unfortunately all were inside - but at least being on the TM forces me to run a bit slower which is what this six weeks is all about, building my base. This week will be more of the same, but I'm planning on going at least 10 if not more on Saturday.

Tim- I put together a Boston training schedule for my training group. It's a mix of the various programs we've used over the past few seasons. Call it the Durden/Daniels/Roots Intermediate Marathoning 15/60. If anyone wants to check it out, let me know.<br><br>
Last week:<br>
Su- 9.5 E<br>
M- 5 E, with 4x strides<br>
Tu- 8.5, with 7x 90 second hill repeats<br>
W- 5 E<br>
Th- 9 E<br>
F- 4 E, with 6x strides<br>
Sa- 12 E on trails<br><br>
53 total<br><br>
More of the same planned for this week, with a trail 50k on Saturday for the long run. I must not get caught up in the racing and stick with the plan to run as an easy/long run.

mon- 8 miles<br>
tues- 4 miles<br>
wed- 10 miles<br>

I started last week concerned about pain and bruising in my right shin after foam rolling and/or running, but luckily it seems to be calming down now. I'll definitely keep an eye on it, though.<br><br>
Monday 1/14: 5 easy TM, weights<br>
Tuesday 1/15: taught pilates, 7 easy TM, taught yoga<br>
Wedneday: taught spinning, 20 min elliptical<br>
Thursday: taught pilates, 6 miles with 6 X 2:00 intervals in the middle (treadmill), taught yoga<br>
Friday:5 easy outside, travel day to overnight work trip<br>
Saturday 1/19: rest day (workshop + travel day)<br>
Sunday 1/20: 13 easy on my favorite path, 30 min. core (pilates)<br><br>
36 miles<br><br>
I am looking to gradually ramp up from here to 50-55 mpw and get as many hills under my feet as I can in the process.

Screw it - I'm not signed up for a race yet and still negotiating which one(s) to do, but I'm training like I'm doing a marathon so I'm jumping in this thread!<br><br>
Last week was a decent week despite work/family obligations:<br>
Mon - off<br>
Tues - 6+ miles, easy<br>
Wed - Hill Reps (6), 7 miles total<br>
Thurs - 10 smooth, 7:15s out, 7:00s back<br>
Fri - 8 easy<br>
Sat - 9 easy<br>
Sun - 20 miles, 2:29 total (negative split booyah!!)

Lightest week in quite a while due to travel. It was a scheduled Pfitz "recovery week", but even so 23 miles (6 + 5 + 12) hardly counts as a week. All the runs were tough weather/terrain-wise, though, and the 12 was the scheduled medium-long run.<br><br>
The previous Sunday I managed an early morning (ugh) 18 on the Boston marathon course, from Natick to Centre St. in Newton and back.
