How is it already October?!
Monday: Woke up almost embarrassingly sore from hiking. Bit of a combo run, with a before practice then a few 1200s at 7:00 pace with some of the team. 8.5 miles.
Tuesday: Also known as, World’s Most Athletic Day. Hiked Eagle Mountain with Will and the dogs in the morning then did an hour run then went to CRWrx class (30 minutes of core). 4 miles with the team in the afternoon.
Wednesday: Sore, explanation above. My legs were fine but all the tiny stabilizer muscles in my core were on fire! 3.5 mile recovery run.
Thursday: 10.5 mile run at a very good clip in perfect fall weather.
Friday: 5.5 mile run in the morning then Body Pump.
Saturday: 7 mile run at Thetford plus coaching sprints.
Sunday: Felt awful all day but Will convinced me to get out for 5.
Total Miles: 51
Total September Miles: 225
Found a much better balance this week of getting out and enjoying the outdoors, being present to coach and training myself. My training isn’t particularly focused right now but I’m working on building general fitness and more importantly, actual strength through Body Pump and core class.
Had a great meeting with Dave from Skechers on Wednesday where we got to talk goals for 2017 and I got to see the new lineup! I have a bazillion pictures of all the snazzy new gear (can’t share them yet) but I was really impressed to see the following improvements:
- Refinement of the soles to make them more streamlined and lighter. Bonus for being more durable (~500 miles of durability in wear testing)
- Uppers are now all FlyKnit for a better fit and more comfortable ride
- The Meb Razor. This shoe is going to be an instant hit and I can’t wait to get my hands on it!
