Mon: AM - 8.5 miles easy (7:07); PM - 4.1 miles easy (7:13)
Tue: AM - 9.5 miles with 6x60s uphill and 2x60s downhill. Ran the workout on the treadmill because the roads were slippery and covered with snow. I ran the uphills with the treadmill incline at 6-7% grade, which is the grade of the Newton hills. For the first 3 reps, I started at 5:15 pace and then increased the pace to 5:10 for the last 30 sec. The last 3 reps I started at 5:10 and increased to 5:05-5:00 pace. For the downhills, I was only able to run 5:00 pace at a -2% grade because that's all my treadmill was capable of. While I got the leg to turnover, I didn't achieve the downhill pounding and quad-beating which was the purpose of the downhills. PM - 6 miles easy (7:58)
Wed: AM - 5.3 miles medium (6:32); Planned run was 10 miles at an easy/medium effort. I woke up late and didn't have enough time to put in 10 miles, so I hopped on the treadmill for a quick 5 miles before I had to get ready for work. After a mile warm-up, I ran the next 4.3 miles in 27:07 (6:19 pace) starting at 6:30ish and then working my way down to 6:10. Pace felt very comfortable and steady; PM - 6.2 miles easy (7:20)
Thu: AM - 5.1 miles easy (7:25) treadmill; PM - 6.1 miles easy (7:06)
Fri: 8.6 miles with 6x30s pick-ups (7:00) treadmill;
Sat: 18.3 miles long run with 6x1/2 mile at marathon effort with 1/2 mile easy; Ran the first 12 miles averaging 6:48 and then alternated 1/2 mile at marathon effort with 1/2 mile easy for the last 6 miles. Splits for the 1/2 mile at marathon effort were 2:56, 2:56, 2:55, 2:53 and 2:57.
Sun: AM - 7 miles easy (7:12); PM - 4.6 miles easy (7:36)
Weekly Total: 89.3 miles on 12 runs/7 days
This week was a little rough with the freezing temps, but I still got in some pretty good volume and a couple decent workouts. I just hope that there isn't any more snow days.
