Weekly mileage check in for week of 14 July (Read 361 times)

    Great start of the week. Started the day with a 36min UB w/o, followed by an 11K dogless run. Biked to work (about 6.5K) and back ofcourse. Especially loved the bike ride home. Soooooo relaxing. Well, off to the neighbour, invited me over for coffee.

    Imminent Catastrophe

      5.2 today in New Orleans. I kept thinking how it really felt hot, there was no wind, full sun, really humid. Got back to the hotel and turned on the Weather Channel...temperature 93, heat index 106. Yes, it was hot. Gasp Tongue

          I wouldn't have run in that heat Perfesser. Hat's of to you! Why were you on the TM, Ennay? Too hot outside? Did a 4.4K recovery run this morning. Without Spike, I had to keep an eye on my HR. Whenever it went over HR150 with even one beat, I stopped and walked. Spike usually causes me to stop running as he stays behind to sniff&dig, or chase a rabbit, or annoy the horses in the paddock. Grey outside, but a nice temp and a cool breeze. Enjoying a chocolate milk and then off to shower and work. I'll hop on my bike again.

            Dutchie - no, I have to run on the TM on Monday's so dh can ride his bike to work. He has a morning meeting so he has to leave too early for me to run first, which means schlepping the kids to the gym with daycare to run. I only let him do that on my short days. It would have to be VERY hot for me to choose a TM over outside. 3.7 this morning, planning on 5.5 on the trail tonight.

            I run for Fried Chicken!

              6 on the TM last night. It's going to be a short week because of my vacation. Last week was short as well. Got way too drunk on Sat. night and was hung over all day Sunday. I just can't drink like I used to anymore. Dead

                  I survived a tough day of training… 4 miles easy in the morning; then 8.7 miles with 4 miles at 6:00 pace during my lunch break. The heat really got my heart rate up to 200BPM, and a friend of mine caught me in the last half mile of the tempo session and pushed me some more. I tried drinking caffeine 1-2 hours before the workout to really get me going, I think it helped because this was my first workout out at or above 90F(32C) that I maintained a consistent pace.

                    Definitely not. I didn't even think I drank that much that night. About 2.5 scotches and 4-5 shots over a 6 hour period. That's not much more than a drink an hour. A year ago, that would have gotten me nicely drunk but still coherent. This Saturday, I was gone. Don't remember half the night. Good thing I'm a happy drunk! Big grin

                      HAH - try abstaining or near abstaining for the better part of 5 years through pg/nursing/pg/nursing - I have the tolerance of an 8 year old. I can get very very happy on about a drink and a half.

                            Oh yeah, I am a CHEAP date. I max out at 2 drinks, usually stick to one, especially since my friends who own the wine shop do a generous pour.

                              LOL I can't drink at all either. A half glass of wine and I'm pretty sleepy. 8 Monday, 7.5 Tuesday (figured I'd better lengthen the daily runs if I'm gonna keep the long runs up in the 14-15 mile range, right?) Took today off since this is a cut back week and my long run probably will be about 10. Planning to do 7 or 8 tomorrow, but boy, I hope there's a breeze.

                                OK Dutchie that's a deal, I'd love to run one of those races in the lowlands and chat about dogs. Drinks after are on me, so long as it's Stella Artois... Smile
