Training log - Week ending 6/6/2021

This week was 63 miles of running, 1000 yards of swimming and 12 "miles" of pool-running -- training log is here.

This was either my first or second week of taper, depending on how you look at it (and whether you consider the 10 mile and marathon tapers to be separate or merged).  I took the first few days easy, and then started ramping things back up. 

It has gotten fairly warm and humid around here - daytime temperatures peaking in the 90s (with my weekend runs finishing in the 80s).  No complaint here - since I'm tapering I'll happily accept the opportunity to get some heat acclimation in.  That being said, Sunday's long run totally sucked.  It was really just a matter of trying not to do much damage.

Separately, I checked my iron and folate levels again, and they've improved.  My folate (which hadn't dropped out of the reference range this time) is rising again, and my transferrin saturation increased to 26% from 15% - meaning that it's now in the normal range.  And all of this correlates with me feeling a bit better, so yay.

Monday: 6 "miles" of pool-running and streaming yoga. Foam rolling at night. 

Tuesday: 5 miles very easy (9:15), upper body weights/core, and 3.5 miles very easy (9:09) followed by drills.   Foam rolling in evening.

Wednesday: 11.5 miles very easy (9:03), drills and two hill strides, and streaming yoga.  Foam rolling at night.

Thursday: 4 miles very easy on treadmill (9:47), 6 "miles" of pool-running and upper body weights/core. Foam rolling at night. 

Friday: 12 miles including a track workout of 3200, 1600 in 13:08 (6:36/6:32) and 6:24; 5:22 jog in between. Followed with leg strengthwork and 500 yards recovery swimming. Foam rolling at night. 

Saturday: 10.5 miles very easy (9:12), plus drills and 6 steep hill sprints, and then streaming yoga. Foam rolling in the evening. 

Sunday: 16.5 miles progressive, split as the first 5 miles averaging 8:49, the next 6.5 miles averaging 8:02, and the next 5 miles averaging 7:46.  Later did leg strength work and 500 yards recovery swimming. Foam rolling in afternoon.
