October 2018 – Stats

I’m still wallowing in my MCM despair, but I guess I had an ok running month.  My goal for 1000 miles for the year is still in sight, so I’m going to go for it.

Training stats – Marine Corps Marathon 2018

Week 18 of training is coming to a close.  Only one run left, a two miler shake out the day before the race.  So I thought I’d provide some training stats leading up to it.

 

Here is how my 18 week training plan played out:

 

Total miles 431.26 miles
Total workouts 60 runs
Miles per week 23.95 miles per week
Workouts per week 3.33 runs per week
Longest Run 20.01 miles

 

I’m kind of surprised that my MPW average was this low, but looking back, my mileage was very feast or famine.  I had high mileage weeks of 42, 45, and 46 miles, with two 20 mile runs.  So though the MPW is lower than I thought it would be, I feel prepared for the marathon.

September 2018 – Stats

This was the highest mileage month I have ever run, including the longest non-marathon run I’ve done.  The weather cooled during September, but it was still pretty humid.  I’m looking forward to the October stretch heading into the 2018 MCM.

 

Miles 135.43 miles
Total time 22 hr, 26 min, 50 sec
Average pace per mile 9 min 56 sec

July 2018 – Stats

The summer heat is here.  I ran at least five or six runs in weather with the heat index in the upper 90s, including two humid AF runs in Key West.  I have always found, though, that there’s something oddly rewarding about running in this heat, in a very sadistic sort of way.  Still gotta be really careful though, dehydration ain’t a joke!

Total time 15 hr, 52 min, 58 sec
Average pace per mile 9 min 53 sec
Number or runs 16 runs
