November 2013 Training Stats

December 3, 2013 — 4 Comments

Ah November, back to a run-focused training plan and getting my run-base back. I do miss riding as much as I was during September and October, but I’m a runner and enjoyed this month’s training.

No business trips this month – which was AWESOME!

HIGH/LOW:

  • HIGH: Two this month: I set a new 10K PR…by 1:16!  I also did two trail runs!!
  • LOW: I caught a cold at the beginning of the month, but I only needed to take two days off training. It held on for a while longer, but I kept going…

As far as new equipment & such, none this month.  I did try a new snack bar this month, which came in my Stride Box.  It’s called “That’s it.” and they are great.  They only have two ingredients: “fruit and fruit!” (with apple being the consistent ingredient) and are 100 calories each.  I have not tried all the flavors, but did order a sampler pack – so far, my fav is the apple and cherry.  Check ’em out.

With that, here are the stats for the month that was November 2013.

Training Program(s):

  • Back to a run-focused program in preparation for a December marathon. The plan is: riding on Mondays, running Tuesday-Thursday, doing a run/bike combination workout on Fridays, and a long run on Sundays.  Saturday is usually a rest day, unless there is a race or a needed shakeout run.

    If someone says a 1:16 PR in a 10K isn’t a big feat, they aren’t a runner. Congrats.

    I dig the infographic, how do you create them?

      Thanks – yeah, 1:16 doesn’t seem big to a non-runner…but it’s hard.

      I’m no graphic artist…the infographic is done with PowerPoint and based on a few examples I’ve seen. There are inforgraphic engines online, but I couldn’t get it to do what I wanted, so I went old school.

      Thanks for stopping by!
