This week was 61 miles of running, 500 yards of swimming and 15 "miles" of pool-running -- training log is here.
I mixed stuff up a bit this week - doing my long run on Tuesday so that I could race on Saturday. This worked since I hadn't done a long run last weekend.
As for the 5K race - I was happy with it. I don't have an exact read on my fitness, but it seems to be in the ballpark of what I thought it was. And I got my rust buster out of the way, so yay.
I was planning on racing a half-marathon in Florida in December, but am likely going to switch to a local half marathon this coming weekend. The course will not be as fast, but I'm not in PR shape anyway, so what do I care? And given the current state of affairs, it just seems like a better idea to stay local if I can.
