November 2012 Training Stats

December 1, 2012 — Leave a comment

November was a solid month of training: mostly road running, one trail run, and some consistent, Monday cycling sessions [a spread of 72% road, 2% trail, and 25% bike.]  November was also the home stretch for my Honolulu Marathon training program (including weeks one and two of taper.)  I also ran two races.

As far as new equipment, I bought some winter-weather cycling clothes and a better headlight for the bike as well.

I did have a to travel to Virginia, but kept on my training schedule while away – I even broke out the cold-weather kit since it was about 34 degrees each morning!

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

Training Program(s):

  • 18-week training program for the Honolulu Marathon. The program is basically Hal Higdon’s Intermediate 1 Marathon Training Guide with customization for planned travel and home life. Pacing for my plan is calculated using my half marathon PR, the McMillan Running Calculator, and selecting a pace in the middle of the resulting “Optimal Training Paces” for the various workouts. On the plan, Monday is a 60 to 80-minute cycling session to add some cross training. Weekly mileage ranges from 25 to 40 miles running and 20 to 25 on the bike.

Caloric Stats:

  • Consumed: 106,421 [-2176 from October]
  • Burned: 23,160 [-1,180 from October]
  • YTD: C: 1,072,178/ B: 207,071

Races Completed:

  • 11/18: Big Sur Half Marathon [report]
  • 11/22: Silicon Valley Turkey Trot (10K) [report]
