July 2012 Training Stats

August 2, 2012 — Leave a comment

July was a solid month of training – mixing road and trail running as well as returning to cycling on Mondays [a spread of 66% road, 17% trail, and 17% bike.]

One new piece of equipment this month.  I bought an Amphipod Full-Tilt – Velocity water belt.  I plan to use this supplement the Amphipod handheld for trail and longer runs.  It took a few runs to get used to it (I’ve worn it on all my long runs and each trail run), but I like it.  I didn’t wear it on the San Francisco First Half Marathon, since they had a fair amount of aid stations that would supplement my handheld, but will probably wear it for trail races in the future or races that don’t have an abundance of aid stations.

Anyway, here are the stats for the month that was July 2012:

Weekday sessions ranged in distance from 5 to 8 miles, with the weekend session being the “long run” day at 10 to 14 miles. The plan integrates Easy Runs, Tempo Runs, Speed Runs, and hill workouts.
