COUNTDOWN: 28 days

28

  • 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
  • 4 weeks today until wheels up for Geneva

  • 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

  • 1 hour of focused incline work followed by 30 minutes of core work and a half-mile swim
  • 12 miles on the trail, legs felt great following a long run yesterday, pushed the final 3 miles
  • The body feels like it’s finally coming around following Lavaredo, I think that focusing on shorter quality runs is helping this recovery, My overall mileage is lower but the quality is far better than it has been since the injury

  • 21 miles on the home trail at just over race pace, cooler temps than normal but super humid day, finished with a tempo push up the final 500 ft hill…just to empty the gas tank
  • The GoRunUltras worked great today, first long run back in “normal” shoes and I think these are going to be winners!
