Running Log: Week October 25-31 2010

Well, another HIGH week has come and gone. This is my first back-to-back HIGH week segment, with both weeks made to see me log 65km in each. I ran through last week and felt great, logging 70km and coming into this week with mild knee pain. I made sure to keep my legs in check during the entire week and having only put in two workouts this week, I was looking forward to knocking off another 2010 goal of mine: To finally crack 20:00 again over 5km on the road. I managed to obliterate that goal, running 18:02 over 5km. Be sure to read my race recap from yesterday!

Monday:13km Steady Run at 4:22/km
Tuesday: OFF
Wednesday: Weldon Park 800m workout
- 4km warm up
- 10min tempo
- 6 x 800m (2:57, 2:53, 2:47,2:45, 2:43, 2:41)
- 4km cool down
Thursday: OFF
Friday: Easy 13km
Saturday: Easy 12km w/ 4 strides
Sunday: Halloween Haunting 5km Road Race
- 4km warm up
- 5km race (18:02 3:36/km)
- 4km cool down


This week is a MEDIUM load week, with 60km planned. I'm going to try and keep it no more than 60km, and I want to focus on my flexibility and the slight soreness I get in my knees.  There are only 2 weeks left to the competitive season and one race for me, I want to be as healthy as can be come that day.

P.S. You may have noticed the bar graph above has switched from a green column color to a blue column color. That is because I have now crossed the 1000km mark in my nikeplus profile. Woot!
