The work week …

My plan didn’t go exactly as I scheduled it on Sunday. I did take Monday off, as I planned. Here is how the rest of the week has gone.

Tues – 10.5/1:31:29/8:42 pace/139 HR
Wed – 5.4/44:06/8:15 pace/139 HR
Thurs – 7.3/1:02:29/8:32 pace/139 HR
Fri – 5.4/44:46/8:26 pace/141 HR

I made a concerted effort to keep the HR at 140 and have managed that. It has meant some pretty slow running but so be it. Everything feels healthy – no more talking about the calf. I just need to get the body fit again – that means more 140 HR running until that pace gets faster and lose some weight. I think that will come if I make a concerted effort to focus on intake.

I think that if I keep the low HR work up until the end of July I should see some results. I hope so.

I am at 28.5 miles so far this week and I plan on running 10 on Saturday and 17 on Sunday. That will give me 55 for the week, which is where I want to be. It looks to be less humid this weekend; I will see if that helps me keep the HR at 140 and the pace drops down a bit.

Overall, things progress and I hope to start making progress toward a 3:10 marathon this fall.
