Re: Down in Jim's Garage

May 6
Lunch
Ran 4.3 miles -Mile 1 at warm up pace of about 11 min/mile, mile 2 a bit faster at 9 min/mile, miles 3 and 4 walked 50 sec at 3.9 mph and finished the mile at 8 min/mile, then did a warm-down. The last two miles averaged a 8:24 min/mile pace and is what I am thinking of doing for the half-marathon next weekend, which would give me a 1;50 time. Still trying to decide between run/walk and a straight run. Will experiment a bit more on Sunday over a longer distance. HR was in the upper 130s at the 8 min/mile pace and otherwise in between 110-125.

After Work
10 mins of jump rope practice
10 mins of mobility work and dynamic stretching
Power Cleans: 3x110#, 3x130#, 8x145#
Deadlilfts: 10x135#, 5x185#, 3x220#, 3x250#, 8x285# (could gotten 10, maybe more, but took it easy before next weekend's race to avoid injury, felt strong though)
DH Pull-ups: 5, 5, 11
Stretched

Re: Down in Jim's Garage

May 9
At Lunch
Swimming: 15x100 yds, 30 sec RI (Mostly 1:40, a bit slower than that at the beginning and slightly faster than that pace at the end)
After Work
2x through the following circuit:
- two minute plank
- 50 arm raises per arm (while lying on side with elbow tucked into waist) while holding 5# weight
- 50 side leg raises per leg (while lying on side) with 5# weight on ankle
Shoulder Press: 10x45#, 5x95#, 5x120#, 3x135#, 3x150#

My right elbow was kind of sore during the shoulder presses. I think I strained it moving my daughter into her new apt and carrying all of the furniture up 51 steps of winding staircase.

Re: Down in Jim's Garage

May 11
Ran 3 miles at lunch (warmed-up, 8 min mile for 1.5 miles, then warmed down, HR in mid-upper 130s during 8 min/miles), then
Bench Press: 10x135#, 5x205#, 5x230#, 3x255# (slight assist on rep 3).

Not very happy with the bench press today. I'm starting to lose some weight and I think that and the distance training is somewhat at odds with strength gains. However, I hope to continue to see strength improvements, but perhaps not as quickly as if I were emphasizing that in my training.
