2012 Training Log – Week 25
I feel like I have been treading water for a couple of month’s now. Running has just been flat. My weekly miles are nowhere near what I’d like (a lot of ‘life’ getting in the way), but I have been trying to throw in harder efforts on a more consistent basis. We’ll see if that will shake things up a little.
South Valley Park. 4pm. 105 degrees. Tied the record for the hottest temp ever recorded in Denver. Big south wind made it like running in a blast furnace.
Repeats – .5 .5 1mile .5 .5
Easy cruise after work to pick up a vehicle from getting some maintenance. I’m slow, but I was at least moving faster than the traffic.
Headed up to Roxborough State Park again after dinner. Saw bear #3 of the year.
Repeats. 2 mile, 1 mile, 2 mile.
Pine Ridge fire near Grand Junciton.
Utah is on fire, too.
Late night, then up at dawn to get a run in. First two miles rough, had to stop and let the calves settle down again. Things started clicking after that and I did a medium-effort tempo of 3 miles @ 6:49 pace. Then one mile cool down.
Total: 51.1 miles / 7:38
