Monday, July 31, 2006 through Sunday, August 6, 2006

The weather this past week (in my home town) was runner-friendly with temps at about 58 degrees in the mornings.  And, I'm anxious for more of the same this coming week.  But, I am also very anxious for fall and winter to get here.  I like running temps in the range of 40 to 50 degrees.

My log record for the week shows 23.7 miles running and 16 miles biking.  It felt good to be back in the saddle!  I need to do more biking.

Monday, 3.2 miles on the streets of Pleasanton - dropped off my wife's car at BART station (so she and my daughter would have transportation home after a visit to San Francisco) and then I ran home.  Had coffee at home alone this morning.  Boring!

Tuesday, 4.25 miles on the Alamo Creek Trail followed by coffee at Denica's

Wednesday, 4.0-mile hilly loop in San Ramon (with views of Mt. Diablo, Mt. Hamilton, the San Ramon Valley, and the Amador Valley) followed by coffee at McD's

Thursday, 2.0 miles on the Iron Horse Trail (San Ramon) + 2.0 mile-loop at the AT&T Campus in San Ramon followed by coffee at Carl's Jr.

Friday, 4.0 miles on the Iron Horse Trail (Danville) followed by coffee at Pascal's

Saturday, 4.25 miles on the Iron Horse Trail (Dublin) followed by coffee at Carl's Jr.

Sunday, 16-mile bike ride on the Lafayette-Moraga Trail, coffee en-route at the Ranch House Café in Moraga

Have a good week.  Run safely!  Have fun with your running.

Limited running week for me.  I decided to use this as a cutback week after feeling lousy the first of the week.  Too much heat and headache for me!  I had hoped to push up the mileage this week to 22 but chose to only run 8. 

Tomorrow a.m. I'll be up early - plan 6 on a route I haven't run recently, so I'm looking forward to it.

As always dog, your week looked fun and productive.

I had a good week on the bike. I did 4 rides and once again set new PR's for both my 14 mile speed day and my distance day. I'm well aware however, that this "PR-a-week" trend will soon come to an end. I did the 14 miler in 50:36 and for my long ride, I went 54 miles.

My 4 rides this week yielded 112 miles.

35 miles running (most in a very long time)
41 miles on the bike
3 weights and core w/o's

Weight is hovering in the 167-168 range:grin: and I actually saw a 19% BF one day!
Mostly it stays in the 20-21 range.

Stuck to my homemade schedule for the week. 

Mon - 4.2 miles
Tue - stretch & strengthen
Wed - 8 miles
Thu - rest
Fri - stretch & strengthen (short version)
Sat - 12
Sun rest

Next week is a 10 mile run in Hell.  Then in 3 weeks is the Crim 10 mile run.  I'm looking forward to having some people around during a run.
Parent - By rungear [us] Date 2006-08-06 2:04 PM
hoping you have a Hell of a good run next week! :grin:
Parent - - By NErunner [us] Date 2006-08-06 12:24 PM
Not sure about the wow part, but I can do the weekly part:wink:.

M:  6 with 3 at tempo
T:  10 bike
W:  7 with 8x400
TH:  8 bike
F:  10
S:  Rest
S:  4 easy

27 running and 18 on the bike.  I am running fewer miles than I would like...but I do think I may be running them a teensy weensy bit faster.  I'll take that trade off.

Great mix JT. I hope I can get to a point of being a combination athlete. Run some, and bike some. I can deal with that. :wink:

your weekly looks like a WOW to me!  :grin:

Week # 3 of marathon training in the books. Using the Higdon schedule again ( Advanced II ) and most of the heavy mileage is on the weekends. Good to, because with school and work, long miles in the weekday mornings would be tough. Only 27 miles for the week but that's the way the program goes. Have a great week everyone.

wishing you the best with you marathon training.  :grin:

Damn Marc! Now THAT really stinks. Hopefully the running arm motion won't effect you too much. I managed after shoulder surgery but with just a little discomfort. I've been lucky on the Mtn. bike so far ( knock wood ) only a few near misses on the falls. Dropping in on the steep downhills still make my eyeballs pop.
Get well soon!

Good luck with the wrist recovery.  Hope you find it okay to run as planned.  I'm thinking the aid stations during a race are usually to the right - so, there you go your right wrist works!  You're in business!  : pbbt:

Good luck!
