Weekly Training: December 15-20 -- I'm Back!

After a week of resting my knee, I'm back!  I ran a week of reduced mileage, 24 miles total, running cautiously and at moderate pace.  Any pains were slight, and subsided shortly after running.  I'm planning a similar week for this week, and next week will begin Week 1 of my marathon training schedule
  • Sunday, December 20 - 8.0 miles, 1:23:37, 10.45 pace.
  • Saturday, December 19 - 6.2 miles, 1:06:15, 10.69 pace.
  • Friday, December 18 - 2.0 miles, 20:00, 10.00 pace.
  • Thursday, December 17 - 2.0 miles, 19:59, 10.00 pace.
  • Wednesday, December 16 - 4 miles, 43:01, 10.75 pace.
  • Tuesday, December 15 - 2.0 miles, 20:52, 10.44 pace.
Cold rain was the weather feature of the week, raining almost continuously through Thursday.  Friday through Sunday were cool and sunny, with early morning run temperatures in the 30's and 40's.

Oh, I'm glad you stumbled across my blog too because now I've stumbled across yours! I too love running, because like you say, all you need is a pair of shoes (and not even these at some places, like the beach), and you can get your legs moving and find freedom. Good luck with the marathon training! I have yet to go for the full marathon, and am currently out of commission in terms of running for a couple weeks because for the first time in my life, my knee is acting up!

P.S. Can't wait to hear some of your eco-rants!

Grace, thanks for visiting Running Green! As you read farther into it you'll come across a few eco-rants. There will be more; I pick up an eco-topic about weekly, on average.

My knee is hurting too, and I've been giving it more rest than usual. Hopefully it doesn't put the stops to the marathon training.
Good luck with yours!
