Training log - Week ending October 7, 2012



This week was 61 miles of “real running” and 14 “miles” pool running, plus 1000 yards of swimming breathing drills -- training log is here.  

Another lighter week, as I tapered for a half-marathon and then raced it.  One of the harder races I’ve ever done, frankly.   But got it done, and I'm pretty happy with the performance.

In other news, I finally got in to see my ENT doctor, and got a prescription for antibiotics for what he thinks is a lingering sinus infection.   He prescribed Bactrim, which was a concern, as I’ve learned from previous experience that I can’t run fast at all while on it – easy running only.  So…held off on starting it until post-race – I’l take it through Wednesday and hope it clears stuff up.
