T-5/T-30/T-4/T-29 – Lost In Space

Seems I forgot to post last week.  I’ve been busy.  So here’s my double posting.  Marathon is less than a month away now!  Ach!


I missed a run that week one of my short ones.  Was piled up with work and just didn’t even get to a run until Thursday (from the previous Sunday).  Opted to cut one of the 5 milers.  Second run I’ve lost this training round.  Long run was last of my 16 milers.  Was pleased with the time – pushing the mileage up between rests meant I had a time better than some of my previous round 16 milers (but not my best overall).

Metric Last Week In Total
Mileage Run: 31.15 miles 277.57 miles
Longest Run: 16.55 miles 16.63 miles
Longest Run Time: 2:30:42 hh:mm:ss 2:35:36 hh:mm:ss
Longest Run Pace: 9:07 min/mile 9:22 min/mile


Another rough week time wise.  I pushed my mid-range to Thursday, and my 2nd short run to Saturday.  Did not like this as not enough rest before the sunday long run (18 miler!).  Also, the 5 milers are pushing my mental capacity on the treadmill (as they have on the past).  Wound up only doing 4 miles on the first short run – it was late (11pm at night, I was tired and not..in..the..mood).  The good news was a miscalculation on my part meant I wound doing about an extra mile on my mid-week run.  On the 18 miler, again pushing the time between rests helped the time out.  Better than my first 18 miler last time (and on less rest!).

Metric Last Week In Total
Mileage Run: 37.97 miles 315.54 miles
Longest Run: 18.55 miles 18.55 miles
Longest Run Time: 2:49:45 hh:mm:ss 2:49:45 hh:mm:ss
Longest Run Pace: 9:09 min/mile 9:09 min/mile
