Training April 10 - 16

Mon-Rest

Tues-Dave's Devil Run, 6.6 mi, 52:14, 7:55/mi; Run felt very easy.

Wed-Rest

Thurs-Capen Park, 7.5 mi, 57:00, 7:36 mi; I felt good and stayed with some of the faster guys for awhile. For the last 2 miles, I couldn't keep up, but kept a good pace. Maybe I shouldn't have pushed myself.

Fri-Bike, 15 mi, 58:25, 3:53/mi; legs felt tired

weights 40 min
stretch

Sat-MKT, 10 mi, 1:31:14, 9:07/mi; I ran with a slower person to prevent myself from running too fast.

Sun-MKT, 20 mi, 3:17:49, 9:53/mi; This run was somewhat like last Sunday, only worse. My legs felt sluggish, but I started out slower and slowed up even sooner than last week. Here's my splits, 8:00, 7:52, 7:52, 7:58, 8:25, 8:44, 9:06, 9:19, 9:22, 10:06, 9:49, 11:02, 12:29, 11:37, 12:26, 11:44, 12:28, 11:09, 9:50, 8:31.

I had no desire to push and was just trying to get it over with. I did try on the last mile and 8:31 was the best I could do. I think that I may be slightly overtrained. I'm going to cut my milage for Tues and Thur and run an easy pace. If I don't feel like running, I'll even walk. I'm taking Mon, Wed, and Fri off from everything. No weights and no biking.

Weekly Running Miles: 44.1 YTD Running Mileage: 628.9

Biking Miles: 15

This week I have 36 miles planned, but may cut back more if necessary.
