I spent 95% of last week trying to recover from the Pocono Marathon (get my body ready to run the MCVET 5k/10k on Sunday). The downhills really took a toll on my body! I started feeling better by Thursday and Friday. Now, after 15k of racing on Sunday I’ll be spending most of this week recovering again before running the Bel Air Town Run on Sunday 6/2.
Training Week of 5/20:
Sunday: (RACES) MCVET 5k/10k (5k at 7:00 and 10k at 8:00) Race Report coming later tonight, but I ended up winning both. A couple Ethiopians came up from DC so it made the race more competitive then it has been in a few years. I ran 14:55 and 32:22…splits and details coming later.
Saturday: 45 minutes with 6 x :15 striders on slight uphill over last 10 minutes
Friday: 50 minutes easy on roads/sidewalks then 2 x :15 striders….4 x :12 hill-sprints! / pm: 30 minutes with Amanda (pushing the double stroller)
Thursday: 65 minutes on roads/sidewalks…legs finally starting to feel better. Downhills still hurt my quads. Finished up with 4 x straightaways on turf hard…
Wednesday: 45 minutes on on turf fields at Garrison Forest School Lets are still sore…last 7:00 were barefoot
Tuesday: 30 minutes on turf fields at Garrison Forest School OUCH!!! I don’t even know if you could call that running.
Monday: 30 minutes on turf fields at Garrison Forest School OUCH!!! I don’t even know if you could call that running.
