Monday - 10 in 67:15 / core
I bagged out of my run with Ben. I felt so guilty about it that I then willed myself through ten on the t'mill. I have a major headcold that is wiping me out. J was pretty upset with me for running. I kinda liked that (she cares).
Tuesday - chiro visit / nothing else
Took a goose egg today. Still with the headcold. Felt lethargic and sleepy all day at work. No energy, except to blow my nose. By bedtime, I felt a little better. Maybe J is right: taking a day off might do some good.
Wednesday - 10 in 77:17 / core
I thought the snow wasn't suppose to come until after midnight?! Conditions were rough. I grabbed the microspikes and headed out to the trails. I could only run on them for so long before it just got too dark (even though the snow was helping keep things light). I had fun; I just couldn't go that fast.
Thursday - 14.25 in 90:04 / core
14 x 90 sec hard w/ 90 sec recovery
I've been wanting to do this workout for the last ten days or so. It came together today. Lots of recovery, but I worked pretty hard on the repeats. I planned on doing 12-14 reps and ended up going out to the higher end. In the zone today. Then I cleared the driveway.
Friday - 3 easy ones / lifting / calf strengthening
Chased three miles after lifting today.
Saturday - 7.25 in 57:59
Had to work today, so I did this run early in the morning. Finished before the sun was up. Peaceful. Hardly any cars.
Sunday - 17 in 1:59.41
A pretty good run. At some points I felt crappy at others I felt good. The run ended on a good note. The pace was medium/hard throughout. Cold at the end.
For the Week
61 1/2 miles on 6 runs
3 core workouts
1 lifting sequence
Analysis: Did not get the miles I wanted to this week, and I attribute that to Monday and Tuesday. I probably lost close to ten miles between those two days, but I think it was what I needed to do to shake the headcold. Thursday's workout was the highlight of the week. I will try to get close to seventy next week with two high quality days and a race on Sunday. Haven't raced yet this year; I'm looking forward to it.
