50K Training Week 2 Recap

Monday Run – 12 miles on the hamster wheel – Average Pace? No idea as I quit this 4 times in about 2 hours. B 6 at incline 3, 5 miles at incline 2 and 1 amazing mile at incline 1 for cool down. B All I can say is my endurance is not what it used to be but it felt great to be running for a while

I know Monday is technically week 3 but I wanted to start the post on a positive note before I whined a bit.

I’d like to say I had a great second week of training but things fell apart after Wednesday’s hot run. I had planned to run 48 miles last week. B I had planned a 10 and a 13 milers for Saturday and Sunday and as of Friday I was on track. B However, Saturday I slept in a bit, got my running shoes, my Nuun frozen water bottle and headed out the door. B Miles 1-3 felt great and then suddenly the front of my ankle started to hurt. B By mile 4.5 I was barely running. B By mile 5.5 I was barely walking. B Finally in 6.3 miles I made it back home (I did an in and out 3 mile loop). B And there went the rest of my running weekend.

Sunday – My foot felt fine but after the agonizing pain I felt Saturday but I decided I should be smart and not stubborn. B Therefore, I took a full day off (and maybe a small excuse to do mininum housework.)

Saturday6.3 miles that barely got me home. B I even contemplated calling Tony to pick me up half-way as my mind was freaking out. I was ready to cry and I only wanted to cry one other time on a run in the past year (maybe I’ll share that story one day.)

Friday – A quickie 5 Miles between the Y treadmill and running to the Y & Back. B I stayed on incline 3 and pounded out a few 8 minute miles in between rests. B (Speed hill workout of theB pseudoB kind)

Thursday4.5 easy miles to recover from Wednesday’s run

Wednesday11 miles in the heat outside @ 9:05 pace,B things were looking good!

Tuesday – 2.3 mile sprint on the Treadmill

Monday – 6.1 miles @ 8:51 minute pace on incline 3 during lunch which actually felt comfortable!

Total Miles for Week 2 ~ 35 miles

Although a failed long run weekend, what you don’t do, you can write about instead! B I got three posts in this weekend, some that even had words in them instead of just low quality iphone photos.

So I guess my weekend wasn’t a complete running waste! B So onto week 3 and trying to attempt to run 48 miles on a week where for half I’ll be away in the Catskill Mountains, NY.
