This week was 47.5 miles of “real running” plus 5 “miles” pool running and 2400 yards of swimming -- training log is here.
My training cycle wasn't perfect (when is one ever) but I'm at peace with it. I feel fresh, in a way I haven't in a long time. The training schedule lets me do a short track workout this coming Tuesday, and short easy runs on Wednesday and Friday. Each of these is akin to being given a carrot stick to hold one over until dinner, which is still an hour away. But nothing to do except to force myself to stay seated on the couch, and NOT to be as active as I desperately want. Save it for Sunday.
