2011 Training Log–Week 27

Steady week.  A little light on the mileage, but I’m trying to be better about listening to my body and backing off when I should.  Especially coming off of the recent 100 miler.  I’ve ended up running harder on Saturday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  Didn’t really mean for it to work out that way, but it did.  Will be taking it easy this week leading up to the North Fork 50 mile race on Saturday.


Monday
Run – 13.1 / 2:05 / 133avg
Very hot, hilly late afternoon run before going to see the fireworks. This one was tough, but I felt better than I thought I would.


Tuesday
Run – 7 / 1:08 / 122avg
Nice easy run with 121 avg HR. So many times my easy days are a bit tough because I’m wiped out from previous efforts. Not so today. Felt good and relaxed. Enjoyed that sensation.


Wednesday
Run – 10.2 / 1:19 / 157avg
Felt good. First five were cake, then felt it a bit, then the last 2 were work. 16 min faster than the same run last week!  Very hilly and hot.


Thursday
Run – 7.5 / 1:10 / 128avg
Very easy cruise just letting yesterday’s effort soak in. Follwed up with 2 miles barefoot on the grass.


Friday
13 / 1:56 / 154avg
Another hot and hilly run. Stomach was off and the legs were heavy. Cut this one a bit short, felt like I crossed a line somewhere and didn’t want to go too deep.


Saturday
Off
Wasn’t really planning on taking the day off, but just didn’t feel that great.  Could have forced a run, but decided not to for once.


Sunday
6.4 / :59 / 124avg
Easy.


Total

Run – 57.2, 8:43


Pic of the week:

Actually a video clip this week.  I was running along a gravel path when I heard footsteps crunching behind me.  I turned around and it was a deer!  What a trip.  The thing followed me for almost a half-mile.  Freaked me out for a minute, but it just so happened it wanted to get where I was going as well.
