Weekly Workouts + Reading

March 3, 2024

Week 9/52!

12 Weeks until Bayshore

I feel like this week officially kicked off marathon training, transitioning from the half I ran last month — you can see the taper and post-race recovery week in the graph above, but now it’s back to business. My training schedule has plenty of long efforts (16-20 mi) coming up in the following weeks and I feel ready for it AND also glad that I haven’t been doing them this whole time!

M: 8.16 mi with Jacy (when it’s just her it always turns into a ‘moderate’ pace run which I don’t mind! It’s more than easy effort but I can still chat). 8:32/mi ave. Fantastic weather — it kind of went downhill after this day. Hopefully we can have one more cool stretch!

T: 8 mi easy run @ 9:22/mi.

W: Group run with Jacy + Jen. 9:01/mi average. Some of Jen’s speedwork in there which was fun!

R: 7 mi in Naples @ 9:03/mi. I ran to the beach which was nice! Always fun to see the ocean.

F: 6 mi in Naples @ 9:31/mi. Did not feel zippy on this one!

S: 16 mi @ 9:03/mi average. I felt really good on this — the miles just flew by, especially in the latter half. Meh weather (71-73F, 83% humidity). I did wear AlphaFlys since I find them so much more conducive to post-run recovery; all of my other runs I wore my ASICS Novablast 3s <– I am on my 2nd pair of these and they are my favorite everyday trainers ever. LOVE them.

S: Hoping to FINALLY GET SOME STRENGTH IN. Will report back . . .

Total = 52 mi running and that is all I get credit for as of now 🙂


FINISHED: Art of Gathering by Priya Parker

CURRENTLY: Currently 132/198 pages into the pre-publication copy of the book I’m reading ahead of a BOBW interview + 119/~700 pages of Covenant of Water. My interview is Tuesday and I want to finish so I’m focusing on finishing the nonfiction until then!

    Nice week of running! Yeah… I’m afraid our “winter” may be over. The forecast is showing 80s for the foreseeable future. But you never know- we’ve had cold spells in March before.
