Training for 5/31/19

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 9:17 am

I wanted to get in a long-ish run today, since we’re going out of town this weekend, so I did a lap of the 10.1-mile loop.

I got started the latest I did all week, but fortunately, it was also the nicest morning we’ve had all week. Still warm and sunny, but the humidity was all the way down to 70 percent. Breathable!

In spite of the decent weather, it wasn’t the greatest run. My legs felt heavy and I just never got into a groove. A few of the middle miles were really slow. But I plugged along until I finished it in 1:34:33, a 9:22/mile overall average.

Anyway, that was my last run of May, so time to sum up my month.


  • Week 1 (May 1-4): 19.9 miles
  • Week 2 (May 5-11): 39.8
  • Week 3 (May 12-18): 34.3
  • Week 4 (May 19-25): 17.5
  • Week 5 (May 26-31): 32.7

Total: 144.2 miles

I was happy with my mileage this month. I had a few lazy days but I wound up with a decent total.

Racing was meh. I only did two, the St. Michaels Half Marathon and the Masser 5-Miler, and neither of them went like I’d hoped thanks to hot weather, the 5-miler especially.

I also put in 113 miles on my bike. I think that new seat I got for my birthday is finally broken in.

In June, I’ve got at least two summer series 5Ks to run, and Steamtown Marathon training officially begins June 10. I’m also volunteering at the finish line at Eagleman again.

Anyway, tomorrow morning, Clark and I are flying out to San Diego for a short work-related trip, and staying through Monday.
