Running Summary: Week Of 8/28/17 – 9/3/17

Running summary of the past week of training for the Marine Corps Marathon.

General Reflections: Most of this week I’ve been in Los Angeles, just in time for a little heatwave.

  • Monday: 12.5 easy miles
  • Tuesday: 6 easy morning miles (before flight)
  • Wednesday: 13.4 progressive miles
  • Thursday: 12 easy miles
  • Friday: 5.3 easy miles
  • Saturday: 10 easy miles
  • Sunday: 16.6 mile long run

Weekly Totals: 76.2 miles. 3,340 ft elevation gain

Favorite Workout(s): My Wednesday and Sunday runs.

Wednesday was my first run in Cali, and I had a great progressive run to the beach (Strave info). I felt fast, and timed it well so I caught the sun setting:

LA Sunset Beach

Sunday’s run was the long run (Strava info), and while the heat was exhausting, I climbed a mountain and enjoyed taking in the sights.

Biggest Issues: It was way hotter than I expected, and while climbing the mountain my water supply got dangerously low.

Lesson: Don’t be stupid on hot days when in a new area, make sure you have enough water!

Next Week: Miles. Lots and lots of miles.
