Weekly Recap: Sept 14-20 2009

Filed under: Weekly Recap — Tags: , , — marathonmaiden @ 07:59

Miles: 51.4 miles

Time: 7 hours 38 minutes 0 seconds

Strength: big fat zero

Core: 5x

XT: 0

Wow. Another high mileage week.  Guess that’s what happens when the lowest mile day is 6 or 7.  Overall pace not too bad, I’m sure the 5k lowered it somewhat but with so many miles I doubt that a 5k (plus those 4 mile repeats) really made a difference.  So does that mean I’m getting faster during my easy pace? Maybe, but I guess the next question to ponder is: is that a bad thing? I’m sure we’ll see in future races haha. And now that the 5k is over I’m going to try and make an effort to hit the gym for some strength, although now that I’ve gone so long (feels like forever) without lifting and only running, I’m not sure that I’ll like decreasing my miles for some quality weight time!

  1. I’m not a big cross training fan either, but everything I read and have heard is that it’s necessary. Your pacing increased because you blazed that 5K.

  2. Great week!! I know what you mean about the easy pace getting faster–I find myself constantly questioning if my easy paces should be getting as fast as they have been lately. But I would imagine that as our fitness levels increase, our easy paces are bound to get faster. So as long as the faster easy paces don’t interfere with our ability to hit our target paces on key workouts, then it’s most likely a good thing.

  3. Nice week. Mine was pretty crappy mileage wise!

  4. Weights are by far the hardest thing to get motivation to do. I really like weight training, but I would rather run! Ha, I have run that much all of September. That is a big week!
