Lots of good running this week, just low on volume - which was more than made up for by walking around all of Saturday and Sunday morning with a group of scouts.
Monday: 5.7; 50:00
Lunges, squats, rev. crunches, 4x strides, 100 pushups Week 1, Day 1.
Wednesday: 9.25; 1:13:00
Trip around Mount Kato via Indian Lake Road. Counted as long run for the week. Lunges, squats, rev. crunches, 4x strides, 100 pushups Week 1, Day 2.
Thursday: 4.6; 43:00
Up Main, down Glenwood. Slow and sluggish, but got the job done in the early AM hours.
Friday: 6.25; 57:00
Run through the snow-covered trails of scout camp, doing two loops on long ski trail. Mileage conservatively guestimated based on effort. Shoes came back clean.
Saturday: 3.125; 29:00
One loop of course run the night before. Lunges, squats, rev. crunches, 4x strides, 100 pushups Week 1, Day 3. Extra bonus: walking around with scouts the entire day.
Lazy - should have gotten in five or six.
Totals: 28.9; 4:12:00; lots of walking.
YTD: ~119; 16:47:00. (That will be closer to 140 and 20:00:00 by the end of January).
Overall I'm pleased with the week. Mileage was a little low, but I started the strength plan in earnest and made it every day when I had to. Up next is a planned 30-mile rest week which will turn into something around 60 miles with the John Dick Memorial 50K planned for Saturday, Feb. 4, 2012. More to come on that, including a race report next week.
