Notes: Travel and family obligations got the better of me and I didn’t have the week I was hoping for. But I did restart my running streak (more on that later) and am excited about running everyday at least until January 1st, maybe longer. Back at home this week and no excuses for not putting up a big mileage week.

Notes: I had slightly higher hopes for this week, but life got in the way. E had to go to DC, so I had 24/7 little dude duty, plus some late night commitments. Its fine, I’m not going to beat myself up for taking two down weeks after the marathon. Last bullshit no real exercise week, though. Time to get back on the horse. More on what that means in the coming days and weeks.

Training Totals for the Week Ending 11/8/2015

It’s back to the drawing board after a pretty disappointing fall marathon season. New drawing board, new weekly total thread format where I’ll be tracking slightly different numbers which no one will read.

Notes: I need to be more consistent about posting these weekly totals. All in all, a good week on the roads. I keep saying I’m going to get more biking in, but there are only so many hours in a day.

Notes: I missed a number of these, which sucks. But here were are. About 8 weeks out from New York and feeling pretty good, all things considered. Did a hard workout on Saturday 16 miles, 10 at marathon pace, which left with me a bit of heat exhaustion and/or dehydration. Either way, I was wrecked. This week is a scheduled cut back week. I intend to do some more easy cycling and finally once again work in a bit of body weight work. After this easy week, it’s the height of marathon training. Excited.

Notes: A bad week all around. Got sick, then did a mini-taper for a go at the Presidential Traverse that didn’t even end up happening. If New York sucks this year, it will be because fo weeks like these. I’m looking forward to getting after it this week. We’re going to make a run at the Traverse in two weeks. I’m considering not tapering for it at all.

Notes: Hit the marathon training plan almost exactly. Actually, I came in about two miles over. But no cross training, which I hope to rectify this week in one super huge week before a slight mini taper for the Presidential Traverse in two weeks! Yikes!

Notes: Good week of racing (what this space for a fascinating recap of the New York City Triathlon), but not a great week for marathon training. I think that’s ok. Still did over six hours of cardio. That’s got to be worth something, right?
