This week in Running! Jan 27 – Feb 16

Time to catch up! So here’s an update from my Ragnar Relay post until the third week of February in regard to my running and overall training.  What did I find out? Am I getting faster, slower, or staying about the same?

January 27 through February 2, 2018
Weekly Miles: 16.9 miles

February 3 through February 9, 2018
Weekly Miles: 6.8 miles?!

February 10 through February 16, 2018
Weekly Miles: 15.3 miles

These three weeks are the start of what was a short lived obsession with getting faster! A co-worker of mine recently took interest in running, and decided to join me for a lunch run.  What was a casual run, turned into an all out assault. Our fastest mile time hovers around 7:39 per mile – aka throw up speed.  It was worth the investment, because in the long runs, my times have since gotten much better.

Long convinced I was a 9 minute mile man, I can happily report I’ve been hovering in the mid to low 8 minute range and have only seen my performance improving.
