Where I Went and Where I'm Going

Where I Went (last weeks training):

Monday -  6 mile easy run before work (going to the Houston Texans pre-season game tonight!)  Check!!
Tuesday -  Bikram - 90 minutes   Check!!
Wednesday -  8 miles (treadmill)
Thursday -  3 miles am   Check!!   Bikram pm (90 minutes)  No Check.  I just didn't feel like going!
Friday -  Rest Day   Check!!
Saturday -  Long Run - 19 miles.  Check!
Sunday -   Recover - Check!

Where I'm Going (this weeks training):

Monday -  6 mile easy run
Tuesday -  Bikram - 90 minutes  
Wednesday -  8 miles (treadmill again).  Um.  Apparently THIS week was recovery week from speed not LAST week.  Oh well 2 weeks of no speed then.  :O)  Will probably throw some sort of speed workout on the treadmill then just so I dont go nutso on it.
Thursday -  4 miles 
Friday -  Rest Day  
Saturday -   Long run - 11 miles  - Cut back week!!!!  Yay!  Planning for just as good of a cut back week run as I had 2 Saturdays ago!
Sunday -   3 miles easy


So I went back and looked at my 19 mile run from last year and the total time was 4 hours and 5 min which included the changing of shoes and socks, 9 water stops and 1 potty break (thanks Facebook for the 'this post last year on this date' little thing you've added).  This year the total time was 4 hours 15 minutes which included the changing of shoes and socks, 1 potty break, and 10 water stops.  I guess overall thats about the same, only by reading last years Facebook post it was obvious my mood at the end of last years 19 mile run was a lot better than this year.   While watching the news this morning, they also showed the average temp for August last year was 5 degrees cooler than this August, and believe me it does make a difference!  I am again hoping that when I do my next long run on Labor Day weekend that at least we catch a break in the early morning hours!

I cannot believe you ran 8 miles on the treadmill (well that and 19 miles in the August heat). Great job!
