Weekly training recap: 3/18/13

Get ready for the shortest weekly recap yet! This week was all about taking it easy and resting before the Oakland Half.

Mon: REST.

Tues: 1 mile warm-up, 1 mile of fartlek intervals, 1 mile easy-medium, short cool-down. Some Garmin issues, so pace is approximate.
Stats: 3.2 miles @ 10:07/mile + 30 min stretching/rolling

Wed: 45 min core + PT exercises/stretching/rolling

Thurs: The plan was: 1 mile warm up, 1 mile race pace, 1 mile medium effort, the rest cool down. I ended up running the race pace mile a tad too fast (8:56) — I made a mental note to not go out too fast during the race. (*foreshadowing*)
Stats: 3.3 miles @ 9:47/mile + 30 min stretching/rolling

FriLast run before the Oakland Half. 3 easy miles around the lake without my Garmin.
Stats: 3.3 miles @ ~10:09/mile + 30 min stretching/rolling

Sat: 30 min stretching/rolling

SunOakland Half Marathon! 2:04:26 official time (course record). Rankings: 99/310 AG, 532/1980 F; 1250/3258 overall. Recap coming soon.
Stats: 13.3 miles @ 9:21/mile + 20 min stretching/rolling

WEEKLY TOTAL: 23.3 miles + 3+ hours strengthening/PT/stretching
How I felt about it: Felt good leading up to the race, but did not execute my race plan very well.

    Check it out, you beat 66% of your gender! This recap better be filled with positives (and a little negative since we all need discontent to turn into motivation for our NEXT race)!
