My easy week back running has been easy, hot, and not too exciting. I ran 36 miles for the week. 6,4,6,4, etc… My overall easy pace increased without any extra effort. Maybe I did need a week off after all. Recovering after 6 miles of running in 90 degrees took no time at all, and my body did not radiate heat at all last week. I am back and ready to train!
Today I ran 6 miles. My average pace was 7:53/mile which is in my easy pace range.
Mile 1- 8:20
Mile 2- 7:53
Mile 3- 7:40
Mile 4- 8:02
Mile 5- 8:00
Mile 6- 7:26
I have still been running mostly in the Vibram FiveFinger V-Run Road-Running Shoes. I also tried out the On Cloud Racers last week on a 4 mile run.
My Vibram FiveFingers are almost worn out, and I like the On Clouds, but I have a feeling a pair of New Balance 1600s are in my future!
My Tom Tom Multi Sport Watch is awesome! It connects to GPS easily, has a long battery life, and can be used for swimming. Additionally, steps are recorded throughout the day. I used the Swim setting on my week off, and I couldn’t help checking to see how far I had gone, how many laps I had finished, what my average pace was, etc… This is what happens when a runner has a GPS watch in a pool… I don’t pay much attention to my steps. The only time I check is when my watch starts to buzz and vibrate during a run to let me know I have hit 10,000 steps at 8:00am.
Training, training, and more training…19 weeks of it to be exact.
Upcoming Summer Races
I will let you know later this week what my next race will be!
