Training Log 8-24-13 to 8-30-13

Sat: 25 miles.  Mostly Hiking, but a lot of heart rate red-lining...Still time on the feet, so I will count it.
Sun: 30 miles.  Good 5 hr, 20 mile hard effort.  Amazing trip.  A recharge for the soul...
Mon: nothing.
Tues: am: 4.5 easy, pm: 4.5 easy. pm2: racquetball.  Didn't feel too bad.
Wed: am: 6.84 miles, 1085 ft climb moderate effort rancho run, pm: 4.5 easy- Felt good.
Thur: am: 1 m warmup, 8x800m intervals, 1 m cooldown, pm: 4.5 easy- intervals were tough, but made it through ok, started to notice the neuroma in the ball of my right foot acting up a bit in the afternoon run, evidence of the mileage piling up...
Frid: a.m. 5.6 easy

Total: 91.44 miles running.  16 miles bike (commute to work 2 days).  Actually a good chunk of this mileage was hiking, so I don't think it is too much of a mileage bump.  Probably will not hit 90 miles next week, and that is ok.  Legs are not feeling as peppy as at the beginning of the buildup, but I think it is too be expected, they are pretty much in constant recovery mode right now...

  1. Had to chuckle to myself on Saturday's comment regarding 25 miles. "Still time on the feet, so I will count it."

    The luxury of the ultra fit, to decide if they count certain miles or not.
