Weekly Training Recap (10/24/11 - 10/30/11)

October.....what a fantastic month of training, so good that perhaps there is hope for a solid performance at Javelina 100.  The month saw over 300 miles of running, the most mile-packed month of the year (except for January's 439.5 miles which included the 340 mile run of the Caminho Da Fé in Brazil).  Weekly totals were consistent:

10/03 to 10/09 - 71.0
10/10 to 10/16 - 74.4
10/17 to 10/23 - 79.5
10/24 to 10/30 - 59.3

Monday, October 24
12:59 PM - 8.50 miles in 1:12:35 (8:33 pace) at Rockefeller State Park.  After logging nearly 50 miles over the two days before, things went very well, and got better with each mile.  Mile splits of:




Tuesday, October 25
5:38 AM - 3.00 miles in 26:38 (8:53 pace).  Just an easy 3 today.

Wednesday, October 26
4:55 AM - 9.00 miles in 1:17:43 (8:38 pace).

Thursday, October 27
5:30 PM - 4.00 boring miles on the treadmill.  But Sons of Anarchy is getting better and better by the episode.

Friday, October 28
4:56 AM - 5.20 miles in 47:24 (9:07 pace).  Its getting colder and colder these days.  Still in shorts.  Snow on the way.

Saturday, October 29
4:37 AM - 20.60 miles in 3:08:33 (9:09 pace).  Another split morning (like last week), starting with 11 miles in 1:37:51 (8:54 pace) in and around the neighborhood, followed by a quick drive to Rockefeller State Park for another 9.6 miles in 1:30:42 (9:27 pace), followed by volunteering at the Rocky's 5k. 



Sunday, October 30
7:03 AM - 9.00 miles at a slower than slow pace.  Yesterdays winter storm brought deep snow, slush, and downed trees and branches.  While it made for a difficult trek, the sights were spectacular.




Total Miles (Week) - 59.30
Total Miles (Month) - 308.40
30-Day Rolling - 308.40
2011 Total Miles - 2,330.20



Running the Caminho Da Fé Part II is in the works for January 2013.....with a twist.
