This week was 36 miles of running, 500 yards of swimming and 17 "miles" of pool-running -- training log is here.
I ran the Salisbury Half-Marathon on Saturday. It was within the time range I thought I would run, but on the slower side of that range. But even so, I was pretty happy. It was great to race again, and this race definitely showed that my fitness is trending in the right direction.
Additionally, it was good to once again simply practice the skill of racing (to race well, you need to be fit AND to execute the race well - neither one is sufficient on its own). And, as I'm sure I've commented before, I find that I get a big fitness boost from specifically racing half-marathons that makes them particularly worthwhile.
This upcoming week is a planned down week, as I recover from the race and also my second Moderna vaccine. Then from there I'll go into 6 weeks of training for Grandma's Marathon.
