Out of Fuel: Weekly Report

Five minutes from finishing a 2:10 run you take the gel that’s been riding your pocket. It’s enough to get home. Something is not right.

I’ve got this desire to ‘burn fat for fuel’ but my body is not ready. A banana and extra drink of water got 15 more minutes of running and a slightly faster pace than last week. Inconsistent water intake on the run, not enough early on, and needing more fuel led to another ‘glad this is over’ run.

Weekly Review
Total Miles\Time: 72.0\8.98
Number of Workouts: 9
Stretching: most pre and every post run
Yoga: one, stretching and strengthening
P\U, S\U: little sporadic
Recovery going well, just want to stabilize at the easy zone and get comfortable at the 70-80 mileage range.
Issues to Note: right hip still limited range, tight groin - both are getting better
Next Week Goal: Easy running-start thinking about a 2400m lactate threshold test
yesterday am: 5M in 36:16\7:15 pace
AM: cold, Local roads and hills for 16.0M in 2:10:19 for an 8:09\mile pace

I baked these fresh for my wife finishing her 24-miler. (this blog should be about her, it would be far more interesting)


  1. What?? Popovers were an option and I just got a bagel?

    I have lots over those "let's get this run over with" workouts. I know how you feel.

  2. ahemmm it's mileage based when you run 24 miles the options broaden

  3. Mmmm those look good! Nice reward after a long run too.
