Training for 4/18/13

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 3:59 pm

Man, I have really screwed up the ol’ training schedule this week. I did my long run Sunday like I was supposed to, and a short, easy run Monday morning, but ever since then I’ve just been skipping workouts or moving them around.

Yesterday I did the mile repeats I was supposed to have done the day before. This morning, I thought about doing the scheduled tempo run, but once Pepper and I got out on the road I thought it was a better idea to just do the short easy run that was supposed to come between those two speed workouts after all.

We wound up running the 4.5-mile loop, a little farther than what was on the schedule, but Pepper didn’t really stick to an easy pace, as usual. The Garmin showed we ran it at an overall average of 7:30/mile, but the individual miles ranged from 8:14 to 7:02. The Garmin also claimed we’d hit a top speed of 6:07/mile — if that’s true, I’m pretty sure it would have been where we make the right turn onto Matts Road. Pepper always gets excited there, because he knows exactly how much farther we have to go to get home, and he really takes off.

I did some stretching when we got home. I guess tomorrow I’m running the tempo run, and then Saturday morning I’ll do this week’s long run. We’re probably going to visit Clark’s brother and his fiancee in northern Virginia that afternoon and stay overnight, so it would be convenient to take Sunday as a rest day or just do a short easy run.

  1. Don’t feel bad about messing up your training… I’m out of whack with my schedule, too – from being sick. It sucks trying to get back on schedule. Today was my first day back running (after being sick for three days). I’m still not 100%; it was interesting trying to run and blow my nose at the same time. I managed to do 3 miles. Hopefully, I’ll get to do a tempo run tomorrow as well… We’ll see. 🙂

  2. Who said I feel bad about it? 🙂

    Hope you’re feeling better soon! Definitely before I see you again. Seriously, keep that shit to yourself 🙂
