Week in Review 5.4.15 to 5.10.15

Summer arrived this week, replacing 40 degree temps with high 80s and humidity. If humidity is poor man’s altitude, it’s going to be a great year!

Monday: 5.75 recovery around campus. Arms after.

Tuesday: 8.75 miles plus striders.

Wednesday: 8.2 around the Intervale for the first time this Spring.

Thursday: 7 miles in Red Rocks with 6 by 45 seconds uphill at R pace. SO hard. Legs after.

Other fun things that happened on Thursday? My first intubation!!

Friday: 5 miles on Colchester High School trails. Haven’t wiped out in a while, so took care of that.

Time for my annual eat-shit-in-the-woods run.

Saturday: 11.7 mile long run. Feeling good.

Sunday: 5 mile recovery run in the swamp that is currently Burlington.

Total Miles: 51.4

I’m so happy to have a positive week under my belt. Being back in Burlington helped a lot and I’m feeling much more encouraged by my training. I’ll be going up 10% this week to 56 miles and aiming for two workouts and a long run of about 100 minutes. I start Inpatient Pediatrics tomorrow with a very early start time (6 am) so I may have to run after work but would prefer to get it done in the morning so we’ll see how that goes.

Was pretty in depth with anesthesia this week, but was so frustrated/disgusted by this article. As a coach, I cannot fathom treating an athlete like this, regardless of whether or not I recruited her. Disappointing all around.
