August 27th-September 2nd Training

Monday: No Running.  Still pretty sick.  Didn't get out of bed until about 5pm but my fever dropped under 100 in the early afternoon.

Tuesday: 5.4 miles (7:04)

Wednesday: 4.6 miles (7:03); 9.6 miles (6:55)

Thursday: 4.6 miles (6:56); 3.1 miles  (7:14)

Friday: 5 miles (6:57); 10.6 miles (6:41)

Saturday: 12 miles (6:18) with 33 minute fartlek.  Ran a couple of miles warm-up and then 10x90s on/off at 5:20/6:20 (miscounted and did 11). Ended up running sub 5:15/6:10 and felt pretty good.  On the way back, I was going to attack some hills but my legs were shot on the first one.  Was looking to get a little bit of moderate type running without taxing myself; 6.1 miles (7:18)

Sunday: 9.2 miles (7:02); 4.5 miles  (7:23)

Week Total= 74.7 miles. Crappy week.  The doctor told me I have an ear infection in my ears and I've been super congested and worn down all week.  I noticed that I get a flushed feeling every time I run and sweat a ton more than usual.  This is the second week in a row of low volume training and I was originally planning on knocking out about 120 this week and starting my marathon-specific cycle.  I've also put on some pounds over the last couple of weeks, so I need to be more discipline with the fork but I'm sure it'll melt off when I get back in the triple digits. Frustrated because things were going so well before this.  If I can't get rolling soon, I may do a different marathon.
