Running Log – March 2015

Running Log!

Continuing for the second month with my running log. Having started last month, I am dedicated to keep record of my runs and exercises for future reference. Dr Nicholas Romanov encourages this in his book The Running Revolution“. Please feel free to have a read through and I invite you to do so and encourage you start your own log.


March 14th
Morning Run
Time: 1:43:15s run
Pace: 10:11/mile
Shoes: Saucony Kinvara 4

Notes:

Managed to put in more mileage today. Very relaxing run. March running log will end here. From tomorrow, I am starting a 50 day countdown to Wings For Life World Race, during which I am keeping a separate running log. Click here for more details.

Key Observations:

Saucony Kinvara 4 proving to do alright on longer runs.


March 13th
Morning Run
Time: 57:43s run
Pace: 10:10/mile
Shoes: Saucony Kinvara 4

Notes:

Finally, back and running. I had a 4 day rest. Total reset. Did not plan this, then thought 3 days would do me good. Then I thought, let’s do 5 days. I don’t remember ever taking such a long break. Eventually, I settled on 4 days. Just could not keep from running any longer.

Key Observations:

A rest can be good. A long rest is just impossible. It simply does not seem right. Something was missing. Glad to be running again.


March 8th
Morning Run – Paris
Time: 1:48:30s run
Pace: 9:01/mile
Shoes: Saucony Kinvara 4

Notes:

On a weekend getaway in Paris. running parisWow, what a great place to run.

Key Observations:

Best way to tour a city, a morning run. If I had more time, I would have run a marathon distance in Paris. The scenery, the wonderful landmarks, the easy terrain. Paris is an amazing place for runners.


March 6th
Morning Run
Time: 1:26:44s run
Pace: 10:12/mile
Shoes: Saucony Kinvara 4

Notes:

Despite having to go to work, I managed to get up slightly earlier today and got 8.5 miles in. First run in my new Saucony Kinvara 4. Going from 8mm to 4mm drop. Getting closer and closer to more natural running.

Key Observations:

Where there is a will, there is a way. Got up earlier and put in a nice run to start off the day. Well worth it.


March 4th
Morning Run
Time: 51:19s run
Pace: 10:14/mile
Shoes: Nike Free 5.0

Notes:

First run after my half marathon race. A little slow but enjoying the run.

Key Observations:

Using Firefly Recovery definitely makes a difference. Very little stiffness and easy to get back into the roll.


March 1st
Half Marathon Race
Time: 1:44:09s run
Pace: 7:56/mile
Shoes: Nike Free 5.0

Notes:

Not the fastest of my half marathons, but this one was all about running with a friend. I got a chance to guide him through his first half marathon race and found it a great experience. Great way to start off the month and keep the running log going.

Key Observations:

Although I was the more experienced runner, I let my friend lead the way. He get a good pace throughout and I got to pull him on the uphill climbs. Managed to keep some reserves for the end and had a very easy and quick finish.
