March 1, 2012 — Leave a comment

Here are the stats for the month that was February 2012:

Mileage:

  • Total: 120.31 [-3.54 from Jan]
  • Shortest run: 3.23 [+.1 from Jan]
  • Longest run: 11.33 [-2.18 from Jan]

Pace:

  • Overall Avg: 9:35 [+:20 from Jan, which is OK as I'm training smarter]
  • Slowest Avg: 10:51 [+:02 from Jan]
  • Fastest Avg: 8:38 [+:22 from Jan, but this was on my 10K]

Total Running Time:

  • 19.3 hours or 1159 minutes [which was about 1 minute less than Jan]

Training Program(s):

Through Feb 19, I used a 10K training plan I made using the Runner’s World Smart Coach app. It was about 20-25 miles a week: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. The weekday sessions ranged in distance from 3 to 6 miles, with the weekend sessions being the “long run” day at 7 to 11 miles. The plan integrated Easy Runs, Tempo Runs, Speed Runs, and I added some hill sessions as well, just to mix things up.

Starting Feb 20, I bridged to a similar plan with slightly higher mileage since I am training for a 12K in March.  After that, I plan to increase mileage as I’ll transition to a plan prepping for a 10-miler in April.

Races Completed:

  • 2/18: Brazen Racing’s Bay Breeze 10k [report]
    • Time: 53:27/ 8:38 pace. [My first official 10K, so my personal best]
    • Placed:
      • Overall: 85/513
      • Men: 61/180
      • Age Bracket: 9/18

Upcoming Run(s):

GIDDY-UP!


Training Journal – 3/1/12:

  • Current plan: 12K Training
  • Today’s session:5 mile tempo @ 8:53
  • Comments: Nice run.  Did a 6.3 tempo @ 8:58 following the same Trinity Trails System course I’ve been doing while in Fort Worth this week.  Ran up on another skunk this morning – crossing a foot bridge, no less!  He saw me coming and ran the other way…I paused then booked!  (I’ll blame the overage on pace on Mr. Skunk…)
