Training Dec 16 – 29
This was a bit of a messed up two week period, as Desi and I went out to The Black Hills to visit family.
I still managed to get all my volume in, and it was an extremely successful two week period.
Those few runs over 9 minutes per mile were ones up into the Black Hills National Forest. It’s a 3 mile climb going up almost 1000 feet.
Sessions worth mentioning are the last couple tempos that I executed, one was 20 minutes three weeks ago the the other was 25 minutes two weeks ago, both at the same pace of about 6:13 average. The goal over the next few months is to reach 40 minutes at the pace of about 6:00 per mile. After that we’ll take the time down again but increase the pace a bit more.
As for nutrition during the two weeks. The last was all over the place. I basically survived off of Dave’s Killer Bread and Nutella. Not that I’m complaining 😉
