2012 Training Log – Week 5

Typical taper week.  Felt like cr@p every run only to have the legs feel light and snappy for the race.  Good timing!  Ran great the first 80% of the race, then pretty bad the last 20%.  Fair result considering where I’m at in my training.  Work to do!

5 miles
Saucony Peregrine

Hildebrand Ranch after work. Packed snow, but it was soft and I sunk 2-6 inches every step. Tough run.

7.4 miles
Saucony Peregrine

Very snowy. Easy tempo.

Also set a new best on my TRX. When I started I could only do 3 rounds with 5 reps of my exercises. This time I did 7 rounds of 7 reps. Definitely getting stronger. Feels good!



6 miles
Saucony Peregrine

Easy final run before race day.



31 miles

Psycho Wyco 50k. 5:09. 15th out of 120. 3rd master. 4,500′ climbing.



Total: 50 miles / 8:07 / 490 TSS

  1. WAIT! Did I miss a race report? Need to hear more about the KC effort (uhh, yeah, its a race, nobody feels good the last 20 percent unless they are winning it or dogging it).

    • No report, yet. Soon. Gotta pay the bills first! Still trying to wrap my head around the last 5 miles a bit. I cratered. Bad. Way beyond just not feeling good. Got some good HR data to look at, though.
