Ideas, photos, routes, and how I fare doing all sorts of workouts. Riding, swimming, biking, etc. Dave Masterson's workout blog.

Off the usual

stravalogo5mi. The “prescribed” workout for pre-marathon Thursday is run the track session at half speed or do 6 – 800m intervals at marathon pace.

Not today! I ran the familiar workout next to Attila, we were going faster than I would have but with no problems or strain. My breath was taxed, but it recovered quickly. Now to lay off until Sunday’s race. Weather should be warmer than the previous 4 years for A1A Marathon, but I have the experience and nutritional plan to deal with that.

I forgot to stop my Garmin at the end of the cool down. I drove south and once in PGA National, I stopped the watch. When I got home, I plugged it in to sync. The data now automatically updates to Strava. Josh Skielnik congratulated my on my 8.9 mi run at 5:39 pace! Ooops….

1 mi warmup jog

800m w/200m recovery
400m w/200m recovery
200m w/200m recovery
1000m w/200m recovery
800m w/200m recovery
400m w/200m recovery
200m w/200m recovery
1000m

1 mi recovery jog cooldown.

Everything feels good – shoes, no injuries and nutrition. A1-A Marathon #12 is going to be a good one!
