Hanson Week 7: Cumulatively Fatigued

Sunday (7/12 /15) - 8.14 miles, 1:14:18, 9:08 pace

Monday (7/13/15) - 6:39 miles, 58:32, 9:10 pace

6 run and done.

Tuesday (7/14/15) - 7.54 miles, 1:01:09, 8:06 pace - Speed work.  Ran to the high school track, then 400, 800, 1200, 1600, 1200, 800m intervals with 400m recovery runs in between.  It was tough.  Usually I feel great after runs (Thanks, Runner's High), not Tuesday.  I was wiped out by the time I got home.  The heat didn't help.

Perhaps I was tired because I was
weighed down from the massive
gallons of sweat absorbed
into my "Dri" fit clothes.

Wednesday (7/15/15) - Off

Thursday (7/16/15) - 7.75 miles, 1:01:21, 7:54 pace

Friday (7/17/15) - 7.54 miles - Ran with the 3-year old in the jogger stroller and my 5-year old and friend on their bikes. I dropped them off at the halfway point.  They weren't as motivated as I had hoped.

Saturday (7/18/15) - 8.02 miles, 1:11:38,  8:56 pace

Total Weekly Mileage - 45.4 - Hanson's theory of Cumulative Fatigue has officially set in.  When thinking about my fatigue, another F word comes to mind...


  1. Forecastle?

    Nice job this week. I guess you forgot about yesterday's run. Maybe that's the word - Forgot.

    1. If you paid attention, you would notice that my weekly recaps begin on Sundays. Our run should be in next week's post, but now I'm reconsidering posting it at all!

    2. I didn't realize there was such a precise protocol regarding your posting. Is there a rule about mentioning anything that happens after midnight on Saturday until the following week? Fahgettaboudit indeed!

    3. Also, if you got attacked by a bear on Sunday I'll bet you would have included it in this post.

    4. Of course! Priority posts: 1. Bear attacks, 2. Bathroom breaks, 3. Bunny encounters, 4. Falling, 5. Chafing, 6. Blister, 7. Run with ER

    5. I don't want to tell you how to live your life, but some people would combine chafing and blisters.

  2. Kudos to you for running in the heat.

    1. Thanks. It hasn't been fun (this past Sunday and Monday even worse), but I'm hoping it will condition me for a possible hot finish on marathon day (usually 80 degrees by the end).
