Running Summary: Week Of 9/4/17 – 9/10/17

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

General Reflections: I was in Los Angeles for half of this week. I set a new weekly mileage record, topping 100 miles for the first time, and a new weekly elevation gain PR.

  • Monday: 4 easy miles | 4.5 easy miles
  • Tuesday: 17.8 trail + road miles
  • Wednesday: 1 easy mile | 18 trail + road miles
  • Thursday: 7.6 easy miles
  • Friday: 10.1 mile workout | 5 easy miles
  • Saturday: 20.3 miles
  • Sunday: 13.2 miles

Weekly Totals: 101.8 miles. 5,883 ft of elevation gain

Favorite Workout(s): My Wednesday long run

On Wednesday I took a train to Hollywood, and did a trail run up and around Griffith park (Strava info). The views were phenomenal and fortunately it was a more frequently trafficked trail system so I didn’t get really lost (like I did the previous day).

Biggest Issues: On Tuesday’s trail run I got dangerously lost.

Lessons learned: Bringing an emergency little flask of water (I have a 7oz one I used) on runs that may be longer than planned is a good safety precaution to take.

Next Week: Lower the mileage and get back to more speed work
