This Week in Running: 7.12 to 7.18.10

Monday 7.12
AM: core
PM: 14 in 97:48
Ran parts of the Warner Trail w/ Ben.  Started easy.  Got fast.  Some good hills. 
Tuesday 7.13
AM: core and bike to work (39.8 mile roundtrip)
PM: 4.75 in 34:21
Easy run w/ Rich.  New Sneakers: Saucony Ride II.
Wednesday 7.14
AM: 12.5 miles in 89:30
PM: core
2 x 15 min @ threshold pace
The perceived effort was there.  Not so sure the pace was.  Ultrahumid.  Toughest day of the week so far but recovered for a sub 6:30 last mile.  
Thursday 7.15
AM: core
PM: 10.75 in 78:48
6 x a hill
Did this same workout in April.  This time I was about 5 seconds slower per repetition.  Makes sense given the heat and my current state of fitness.  Goal for this workout: to build strength.  Finished the day w/ some strides.
Friday 7.16
AM: lifting sequence and jog to/from gym (4 miles)
Saturday 7.17
AM: 7 miles in 51:34
Easy day in prep for Stowe.
Sunday 7.18
AM: Stowe 8 Miler and 15 miles for the day
Race report to follow.  A hard effort but my time (45:04) was slower than I thought it would be.  Good to get the miles in.

For the week
68 miles in 7 runs
39.8 miles on the bike
4 core workouts
1 lifting sequence
2 swims in VT water (best part of weekend)

I think I need to start logging more miles.  I may start experimenting with doubles.  Less core, more miles?
