A small confession about last week’s lack of wrap: I was in the middle of a book series, and I….kept reading. In my defense, weekday binge reading would have been problematic. Considering my last WW title was “suspiciously productive”, maybe this one should have been “suspiciously unproductive”.
Anyway! Last we talked about running, my goal was 15-ish miles for the week. It went well for one week, at least.
Week of Feb. 11
Three runs: 4.25 miles, 3.25 miles, 6.5 miles. 14 miles total, so I count that as 15-ish. Two strength workouts. The last half of my long run felt like running through molasses, which I guess shouldn’t have been surprising since it was both the longest run and highest mileage week post-injury.
Week of Feb. 18
Runs: 1.6 miles, 3.9 miles, 1.8 miles; 7.3 miles total. I had planned 7ish miles this weekend, but felt like I was getting sick Fri-Sat. I feel ok now, so…*shrug*.
Also two strength workouts, and one pool running class. I guesstimate the class translates to 4-5 miles (it’s 50 minutes), but I actually have no idea. Is there even an equivalent between pool running time and land distance? I’ve been meaning to ask the instructor.
I’m planning to be back around 15 miles this week, and maybe…mayyyybe…up to 20 miles in 3-4 weeks.
Any ideas on the pool running/distance equivalence?
What’s the last thing you binge read?
