Re: Pocket's Log and Progress Toward 1st Marathon

Fri 2/8 - 5.0 @ 8:38 pace
Sat 2/9 - 4.9 @ 8:55 pace

It's occurred to me that I might be doing some of these training runs too quickly (Tues+Wed?), at least relative to my intended sub-2hr half marathon goal (to keep the arithmetic simple, 9:00 pace x13.1 is 1hr57m59s.)

Funny enough, I haven't felt much soreness or tightness until last night, when WALKING around for ~1.0-1.5 miles finally made me want to sit down for a breather (eh, it was after midnight). My former fat self (eh, I'm still kinda skinny-fat, but we're working on that too) might have said "ok let's take a rest day Saturday", but today I was happy for an excuse to slow the pace and really do a legit "easy run".

Splits for most of those were pretty even. Feel pretty good/k. New lady friend told me I had great legs. Yay.

Re: Pocket's Log and Progress Toward 1st Marathon

Nice time!

You're probably running most of your training miles way too quick. They all seem to be around HM pace or slightly slower.

Re: Pocket's Log and Progress Toward 1st Marathon

Thanks! Agreed on adjusting speed in the future - I’m probably going to start increasing the weekly mileage for the next few weeks, and it’ll be best to slow the pace for those extra miles (otherwise I likely open myself up to all sorts of issues)

Re: Pocket's Log and Progress Toward 1st Marathon

3/11 - 2.8 @ 9:30
3/13 - 5.0 @ 9:40
3/14 - 4.2 hills @ 8:45


Two more races on the horizon. 5 miler on Sat 3/30, 10 miler on Sun 5/5. Planning to PR both of those -- hopefully something like 40:00 (8:00/m) for the 5 miler and 1:25:00 (8:30/m) for the 10 miler.

3/15 - 5.0 @ 9:12

Second time this month I've strung together 3 consecutive running days. Feels good. Helps that it's f*cking beautiful outside. Just need to remember to not increase the weekly mileage TOO quickly, and obviously won't forget to cross train
