Weekly training update

This was my first week being back in my normal schedule of running and soccer games, so it was a bit easier to get my mileage in than it has been the past few weeks. But, I was definitely sore Wednesday after playing 3 games in a row! 


Sunday - pick-up soccer, approximately 3.5 miles. I actually forgot to bring my Garmin with me to soccer, so I'm estimating this based on the last few times I've played. Several weeks I've hit 4-5 miles, but I'd rather err on the shorter side. 

Monday - 7 v 7 soccer game, 1.83 miles. We won the game 6-1 and luckily missed out on the rain by a matter of a few minutes! 

Tuesday - 7 v 7 soccer game, 2.39 miles. We lost 2-1, but it was a good game and I got some good mileage in. Here's an idea of what my Garmin map looks like after a soccer game:

Wednesday - 7 v 7 soccer game, 2.36 miles. We tied the game 2-2 and did pretty well for our first game back since early December. The field we play on for this league is a lot smaller than the one I play on for my Monday & Tuesday night teams, so it's a very fast-paced game.

Thursday - short run, 5.71 miles, average pace: 11:22
  • Mile 1 - 10:30
  • Mile 2 - 10:43
  • Mile 3 - 12:54
  • Mile 4 - 11:19
  • Mile 5 - 11:32
  • Last .68 - 11:19

Friday - off

Saturday - long group run, 7.84 miles, average pace: 12:37
  • Mile 1 - 12:30 
  • Mile 2 - 11:31
  • Mile 3 - 14:12 <-- water stop
  • Mile 4 - 12:00
  • Mile 5 - 11:55
  • Mile 6 - 14:36 <-- water stop
  • Mile 7 - 13:02 <-- long wait for a stoplight
  • Last .84 - 10:56 <-- the group decided to stop at 7, but I ran back to our start line on my own
It's been a good week and I was able to hit 23.63 miles, 4 miles over my target! Next week includes a longer run (12 miles), so I should be hitting similar mileage again. What did your mileage look like for the week?
