January 2009 Mileage

Posted Feb 02 2009 10:42pm
Saturday's PR at the Lake Benbrook Half Marathon was the last run of a month in which I ran the most miles in any month: 194.75, just edging out the 193-mile month I had last October. And the thing is, I only ran 20 days in January. I took more days off, ran less 4- and 5-mile speed runs, and concentrated more on endurance. 14 of the 20 runs were at least an hour long, and four of those runs lasted at least 2 hours.

Here are the numbers...

Miles: 194.75

Time: 26 hours, 7 minutes, 40 seconds

Pace: 8:02 minutes/mile

Avg heart rate: 78 percent of max.

I did a 7.3-mile recovery run today, going as slow as I could without screwing around with my stride. Got it done in 1:04:58. Pace was 8:54. I was not as sore as I thought I'd be after Saturday's half marathon. This week is the last big mileage week before the Cowtown Marathon on Feb. 28. This is what I hope to run this week

Today: 7 miles (done)
Monday: off
Tuesday: 8 miles
Wednesday: 10 miles
Thursday: 8 miles
Friday: off
Saturday: 22 miles (running the Cowtown Marathon course just to know what those hills feel like)

Total: 55 miles
