Monday: 9.1 miles (6:37); 6.3 miles (6:55)
Tuesday: 5.9 miles (6:48); 11 miles with attempted workout. Planned on doing 10x2:00 on/off but my quads felt like wet sponges on the first one and I knew I wasn't ready for hard running. Shouldn't have done the half-marathon/fast trail run combo.
Wednesday: 5.3 miles (6:53). Skipped second run because I had running club after school and then a massage
Thursday: 10 miles with 8x.15 fast with .35 easy (6:10). Ran 4:22 pace on the fast portion. Legs feel much better, post-massage. Skipped second run because I had to head to Florida.
Friday: 6.6 miles (7:00); 6.3 miles (7:44)
Saturday: 14.9 miles with 15k race in 45:24. Good effort, considering I expected to run 46:00-46:30. Started out slow and started catching people after 5k. I felt strong and in control, but I just didn't have the wheels to run faster. Finished 15th overall and beat some tough guys.
Sunday: No running. Travelling and fatherhood
Week Total: 75.4 miles. Good race but not a good week. My training has been very up and down the past few weeks and as I type this, I've been sick the past two days. I was hoping to get in about 110 miles this week, with a good workout, 5k race, and long run but until I get better, it's up in the air. I'm far from fit now, so I was hoping for a good week to get ready for Cherry Blossom. Hopefully I'm not losing fitness because I only had one hard workout last week, with low volume and I may repeat that this week.
