Late getting this out because we were up at Derby House this weekend! The team is still there through Wednesday but I had to leave paradise to come back to start my second year. Sigh. The next two weeks is Orthopedics, however, so I’m at least inherently interested in the topic.
I had another solid week of training and feel like I clicked up another level in fitness. This coming week is an adaptation week even though I’ve only had two weeks of “up” mileage because I need to make sure my “final” taper is perfect. Ah! It’s amazing to be talking about taper already…
Monday: 9.6 miles easy
Tuesday: Shake It Out Fartlek for a total of 10.1 miles.
Wednesday: Scheduled off day, prorated 9.5 miles.
Thursday: 10.8 mile recovery run.
Friday: 20.4 mile long run.
Saturday: 7.5 mile hill work with the team. 8 reps at varying paces, two of which were soul crushing to try to beat the boys.
Sunday AM: 7.2 mile easy run with the girls.
Sunday PM: 3 mile run.
Total Miles: 78 miles
My biggest anxiety for this week is remembering how to balance school, running, coaching and family. An adaptation week will help, as will my team being gone (sob) until Friday.
