Running Log Week 7

Free GA Class (2).png

Week 7 was an OK week. I did my weekday runs on the treadmill (ewww) and had a great race on Sunday! I was supposed to run 16 miles on Saturday, but because I was running Bay to Breakers I decided to save that long run for next week.

On Sunday I eneded up running two times, I wanted to make sure I got all my milage in so on Sunday I completed the 12K in the morning and then went out for an easy nice jog before dinner.

Side note – I can’t believe I’m half way through my marathon training! Week 8 starts tomorrow!

Total Weekly Mileage: 27+

Tuesday

  • Mileage: 5.5 Miles
  • Time: 1:14
  • Course: Treadmill
  • Feelings: Felt a little tight through out this run. I think it’s time to do some foam rolling every night before bed.
  • Shoe: Mizuno

Thursday

  • Mileage: 4 miles
  • Time: 43
  • Course: Treadmill
  • Feelings: This was a really nice and easy run. Felt good through although I was extremely bored on the treadmill. I think it might be time to create a new playlist.
  • Shoe: Asics

Saturday 

  • Mileage: 7.7 miles
  • Time: 1:29:32
  • Course: Palo Alto to Bayland
  • Feelings: I didn’t have a good run. I’m not really liking the Mizuno shoes, which is a bummer. I’m noticing that they are a little too tight in the midfoot area. They haven’t bothered me during my XT days, but this is the second time I’ve worn them during a long run and my feet aren’t liking them.
  • Shoe:Mizuno

Sunday

1st Run

  • Mileage: Bay to Breakers – 7.6 miles
  • Time: 1:24:02
  • Course: Bay to Breakers Course
  • Feelings: I was a bit nervous going to into this race because I didn’t feel like I had a great training week. However, I actually did pretty well through out the race. Hayes hill was a killer but I managed to keep it together and ran all the way through it! Once I passed that hill the rest seasmed really easy – the rest was basically all downhill with some flats.
  • Shoe: Asics

2nd Run

  • Mileage: 3.02
  • Time: 32:59
  • Course: Treadmill
  • Feelings: I had a really good run which was unexpected since I ran a race this morning!
  • Shoe: Asics
