DPHM Week 2

Last week was another great week of training, even with my mini-race on Wednesday. I was a bit sore on Thursday so I took an unplanned rest day and rearranged the rest of my week.

Monday: strength training
Tuesday: 4.49
Wednesday: 5.18
Thursday: rest
Friday: 4.2
Saturday: 8.18
Sunday: 4.09

Total miles: 26.14

Paces for week 2 were pretty consistent, averaging between 9:12 and 9:41. I actually don’t know my pace from Wednesday’s run since I didn’t have my watch with me. I’m probably happier not knowing since I am sure it wasn’t as fast as it felt.

My general plan for building my mileage in 2015 is two weeks of building followed by a cut back week. This rotation worked really well for me during my fall training this year. I am holding off on taking a cut back week until I get my mileage back up (targeting week 5 as my first cutback week).
This week I am aiming for a minimum of 27 miles.

  1. Glad you had a great week! I'm sort of in the midst of an unplanned cutback week. I figure, this is probably the last time I can slack off a bit for the rest of the year so might as well get it out of my system now!

    I'm just like you – I never seem to actually run as fast as it feels like I'm running and sometimes it's a relief when my watch/phone dies and I don't know my pace!
