This Week in Running: 10.25 to 10.31.10

Monday 10.25
AM: core
PM: 13 in 97:24
10 x 2 min w/ 1 min recovery
For doing 24 the day before, I felt pretty good.  Especially on the first five.  The second five caught up to me a bit.  And then Ben was there to keep the pace honest.  Good hard day.
Tuesday 10.26
AM: 6.75
PM: 3.25
Attended a conference today that allowed me to get in an easy am run.  Felt like Bob Wiles but no rollerbladers.
Wednesday 10.27
AM: core
PM: 11 in 76:36
Good energy but the pace was slower than I thought it would be.  I was babying the calf which was "talking" to me.
Thursday 10.28
AM: core
PM: 13.25 in 1:45.44
2 x 5k
Ugly.  Sluggish from the warmup.  Thought I might get a jolt once I started the hard work.  It didn't happen.  I slogged through this one at around marathon pace when I was hoping for threshold.  The cooldown was long and slow and dark.
Friday 10.29
AM: legcore
PM: lift
Legs happy to get a break after 71 in 5, which is more than usual for me.
Saturday 10.30
AM: 7.25 in 56:31
Real early.  Started slow.  Fastest at end.
Sunday 10.31
AM: 20.5 in 2:14.28
I talked to Ben Nephew about this one.  I was thinking of doing 23-25 but he convinced me to do a harder 20 instead.  By mile 3 the pace was going good.  By mile 9 I was consistently sub 6:20.  The last 7 were 6:01 or faster.  I'm happy with that.  
For the Week
75 in 6 days (7 runs)
4 core workouts
1 lifting sequence
Analysis: Another good week of miles.  It's odd that I could run faster on the back half of a twenty miler than I could during a workout on Thursday.  I've been having about 2 solid runs per week and the others have been clunkers.  I don't feel like I've had a consistent training cycle.  I want to get into one of those 3 or 4 week grooves where everything is butter.
