Marathon Recovery: Week 1 Complete

5 Comments

Coco’s health keeps improving which we are so happy about! Since she has been eating and resting well we were able to take a flight to visit our friends Drew and Kelsey for lunch.

When we got back we worked on house stuff and I had to do work to catch up from the hectic week. Then I did 5 miles recovery on the treadmill.

This is how my week turned out. I got all of my runs in over the weekend:
M-R: Rest
F: Bike 3.9 Miles Warm Up (P1, L4, 15 mins, 15.6 mph), 4 Miles Recovery (Treadmill, 1% incline, 33:01, 8:16 pace)
Sa: Bike 3.9 Miles Warm Up (P1, L5, 15 mins, 15.6 mph), 4 Miles Recovery (Treadmill, 1% incline, 32:31, 8:08 pace)
Su: 5 Miles Recovery (Treadmill, 1% incline, 39:20, 7:52 pace)

Total: 13 Miles

A cool side note: I went over my running log and noticed that I passed 1,000 miles for 2009 on my Sunday run. That’s a first for me in one year, can’t wait to see what 2010 brings!

  1. Your recovery pace is faster than my typical pace. Yes, I am jealous! 🙂

  2. Mere – I think all the tapering and now ramping back up has me itching to run a faster pace. I hope it lasts!CJ

  3. Looks like you have recovered nicely from Chicago! What kind of plan are you working on for Mercedes? Ps. Your last pic gave you the title of Cutest Blogger Ever.

  4. Thanks Rebecca! 🙂 I am using pfitz 55 recovery program now and was planning to do pfitz 12/55 for the next marathon. If you have any suggestions though I would be glad to hear them. :)CJ

  5. I hope coco is doing better! I've been thinking about you guys! Brian and I will be the same way when we get a dog! 🙂
