  • 24 hour work day, taking a day off to recover from the last 8 day push
  • I’m having to really pay attention to my training log and weekly plan so that I don’t stray and end up doing more mileage than I planned, everything has been feeling very good but I know that is a result of lowering my mileage a bit and focusing on more quality runs

  • 6 mile steady run followed by 1/2 mile swim and 30 minutes of core, my goal was a 1 mile swim today but I got booted from the pool because some nincompoop claimed to have heard thunder…
  • 10 mile tempo run with lots of hills thrown in, felt great today on each of my runs though it was oppressively humid on both, no hydration on either to make them a bit more uncomfortable

  • 1.5 hours of Bikram Yoga
  • 1 hour of focused incline work followed by 8 miles of 1/2 mile alternating hill intervals
  • These seemingly short runs are really good for getting the heart rate up on the vert 1/2 mile and then help with training the body to quickly recover over the slightly less vert 1/2 mile the follows, it’s a short but tough workout that I think helps change it up from those long slow days that dominate my schedule
