Weekly Training Review

Well so far so good. This year's training is going well. All six days of it.

Monday - Rest day
Tuesday 3 miles in 31:22 and strength training
Wednesday 3 hilly miles in 31:30
Thursday - rest day with a side of yoga and abs
Friday 5 miles in 50:05 and strength training
Saturday 3 easy miles in 30:12
Sunday 8 long slow distance miles on the treadmill in 1:22:30 followed by an hour of yoga

Bam all runs in plus cross training.
Round of applause please

Okay okay I realize it has only been a week into the year. But I like to celebrate every little accomplishment.

I found this sweet training paces site to calculate how fast I should be running my runs. Trying to train smarter. These are the paces I should be hitting if I want to run a 1:54 half. Seems reasonable.

Easy Run
10:00 per mile
Tempo Run
8:21 per mile
Maximum Oxygen
7:32 per mile
Speed Form
6:58 per mile
Long Run
10:00 - 11:16 per mile
Yasso 800s
3:52 per 800 meters

 Why 1:54- uh I don't know but since my easy runs have been about the 10min/mile range it seemed like a good jumping off point for training. 

How is your year going so far?
