Portland Marathon training week 9 of 16

Over halfway.

Monday 8/14/17: Off. Tired but not feeling bad from yesterday’s long run.

Tuesday 8/15/17: Easy 3 miles in the morning. First run in my Brooks Revels – so far, so good. Heel dips after the run.

Wednesday 8/16/17: Al Goldstein 5k after work with one mile each of warmup and cooldown. I ran the race in 25:54, which made it my second fastest 5k ever!

Thursday 8/17/17: Morning climbing session! And foam rolling.

Friday 8/18/17: 3 miles before work. I had 5 on my schedule but really wasn’t feeling it, between the humidity (ack!) and a slightly sore right quad/groin. I’m not sure if climbing or the 5k is to blame for the soreness. Evening: flight to Portland for Grandma’s birthday and solar eclipse viewing weekend.

Saturday 8/19/17: Off, hanging out with the family and chasing toddler nephews.

Sunday 8/20/17: 13 mile long run on the hills outside Salem, Oregon. I love running out here. It’s hard; the first four miles of the route were uphill, and the first two on gravel, and I had 1,000+ feet elevation gain over 13 miles. But it’s gorgeous and the air is clean and dry and the views are like nothing else.

Totals: 24 miles running, 1.5 hours climbing.
