Masters Running


Running and XT Thread, W/E April 21 (Read 31 times)

    C'mon folks, let's get going here! I hope Dutchie is feeling better. I had a very "meh" week last week but I'm blaming our persistently unseasonably cold and snowy April. We had a couple nights of -20 temps last week! Enough already!! Where is spring?


    I won't post totals because I don't like mine. And I'm just a pinch hitter for this thread anyway...


    Monday: 1.6 mile walk at lunch; 7.3 mile run and .4 mile walk c/d after work (windy!)

    Tuesday: 1.6 mile walk at lunch; 8.3 mile run with hills and .4 mile walk c/d after work (still windy!)

    Wednesday: 1.6 mile walk at lunch, no run after work (went to dinner instead!)

    Thursday: 6.1 mile hilly run after work, .3 mile walk

    Friday: 5.5 mile out-and-back run, .5 mile walk

    Saturday: 8.1 mile GA run, .4 mile walk (beautiful day, temps in low 40's and no wind!)

    Sunday: 12.2 miles run, 8:09 avg pace, .3 mile walk c/d on another beautiful day


    Totals: 47.8 miles run, 7.2 miles walked (highest mileage week since last August!)

      Hi Erica...not sure if I've been cross training this winter so much as just lackadaisical training...


      But I walked 5 miles yesterday and swam 45 minutes tonight...hopefully I'll get a run in soon.

        Thanks Erica, coughing is finally getting better. Chilly morning air still irritates my airways though.


        Mon: -

        Tue: - / watching the awful news reports on Boston. Hope everyone and their friends/family are safe.

        Wed: strenght training chest/back.+ abs

        Thu: leg w/o. The step ups in this one had a huge cardio effect which aggrevated my coughing and sent my HR thru the roof. But I think I'm well on my way back to health again.

        Fri: strength training: back/biceps + abs

        Sat: doggie walk and running errands, plus one very moody son (for no apparent reason - he's almost 21 yo so should be past those hormonal moods that never seemed to effect him anyway. Maybe he's late?)

        Sun: doggie walk plus strength training: shoulders + abs

        I go running in the early morning, before my brain figures out what I'm up to.

        Run the day, or the day runs you.

          I'm complaining about it getting below freezing later this week and Erika is below zero! Lends some perspective.


          Monday: Rode bike 10+ miles, half with stiff headwind.

          Tuesday: Spinning class, 1 hour at more than usual pace. Strength workout changing DW's winter wheels/tires and carrying them into the basement. Walked about 4 miles in the evening.

          Wednesday: Ran 6 in the AM, rode 10 in the PM.

          Thursday: Walked 3 briskly with DW. 

          Friday: Ran 3 on the TM (rain & wind outside!).

          Saturday: 8 @ 9:40 with the triathlete group.
