Training log - Week ending May 5, 2013

This week was 41 miles of “real running” plus 12 “miles” pool running and 2000 yards swimming -- training log is here.  

Was feeling really good at the beginning of the week, with hopes for an awesome 10 mile race this weekend.  Tapered for the race the same way I had for my PR 10 mile and half races, felt good, and...not the race I wanted or expected.  I'm disappointed, but my time will come.

Woke up on Monday morning (today) exhausted with chills, headache, scratchy throat, and aching upper body.  Plus a resting HR that's way high.  Maybe connected to yesterday's dissappointment, or maybe not - I'll never know for sure.

If you want to find me today, I'll be on the couch, sucking on zinc lozenges.

[edit: hahahaha - I just realized I posted this referring to a "crack workout" on Tuesday - yup, I'm sick.  I'm gonna leave that there - just for kicks]


In the morning, 80 minutes of easy pool-running for “8 miles” followed by injury prevention work and some strength training.  Foam rolling at night.

11.5 miles, including a crack workout of 1600, 4x800, and 2x200.  Splits were 5:55, 2:51, 2:50, 2:50, 2:49, and then 36 and 26.  Followed with 20 minutes shakeout pool-running.  Foam rolling at night.

In the morning, 40 minutes of easy pool-running for “4 miles" plus 1000 yards of swimming breathing drills.  Got a massage that afternoon.
