Weekly Workouts: 10/10 - 10/16

This week begins the final month of training before the San Antonio Rock n Roll Marathon.

I usually don't "look forward" to marathons very much, beyond just getting them "over with," but I think a few things have changed my outlook:

1) Following my sister's journey to the Chicago Marathon.

2) Running more than 20 miles this weekend without dying (much).

3) I REALLY need a vacation! I haven't been anywhere truly "away" since maybe May in Santa Barbara, or perhaps in June in San Diego. As for plane rides, I haven't been on one of those since June 2008.

4) My CEP compression sleeves, salt-packet sucking, and GU intake strategy have been helping out with these long runs a lot.

5) I've been pretty good about eating well and really good about my supplements, so I'm starting to feel MUCH better now than I had been.


This Week's Workouts:

Sunday - rest

Monday - 0 mi (of 5); 45 min cardio; some foam roller; 10 min weights

Tuesday - 7.75 (close ENOUGH to 8) mi - outdoors

Wednesday - 2 (of 5) mi; 20 min strength

Thursday - nothing... I drowned my sorrows at happy hour even though I had planned to run afterward

Friday - 5 mi - indoors; 5 min; 10 min strength; foam roll
Making up for yesterday by combining Thu/Fri workouts as best I could in the allotted time.

Saturday - 12 mi - outdoors

Weekly Mileage: 27
