Weekly Training: September 6 - September 12

Graphic from my page at The mileage in the graphic includes both running and cycling miles.)

A second week of moderate mileage, following two heavier weeks, 35 running miles, 17 cycling miles, 52 miles total.  Short runs were 5, 6, and 4 miles Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday; long runs were 10 miles each on Saturday and Sunday.  I cycled 7 miles Thursday, and 10 miles Sunday.

Although gradually improving, I still have some soreness in my left shoulder, so I continued to skip training with weights.  My yoga practice went well-- I managed to practice at least a little each day, and almost 5 hours for the week.

YTD: 1,271.5 miles running, 436.3 miles cycling, 1,707.8 miles total.

Nice work this week, Vern. Running 10 milers back to back is something. Good luck with your shoulder.

your totals are so impressive- my longest run so far is not much longer than one of your "short" runs! It seems something is always sidetracking me- a cold, my bad knee, etc. I'll get there!!

And glad to hear the yoga challenge is going well, of course :)

Thanks,Stephanie! I really struggled with the second 10 miler and it was a little discouraging. A year ago, I couldn't have pulled it off at all, but after building up to back-to-back weekend 10 and 20's this spring during marathon training, I didn't expect to struggle with 10's. I guess I've lost some conditioning running a little lighter summer schedule. Time to start piling on some extra miles and get back there!

Callah, you'll get there! I hope your upcoming half-marathon goes well! And your yoga practice is great-- it inspires me to do better!
