I took an easy week this week, thanks to overall fatigue caused by my monthly visitor. I felt really great at the beginning of the week, with little soreness from my 53-mile weekend, but Friday/Saturday/Sunday, I had awful cramps and was fighting to stay awake.
So, onto the week:
Monday: Planned rest day!
Tuesday: 6 road miles.
Wednesday: 5 road miles. I finally went back to my Wednesday night Second Sole group! It was nice to run with my friends again, even though everyone has somehow gotten way faster than I am!
Thursday: 7 road miles.
Friday: Unplanned rest day. I had every intention to do 20 or so road miles so that I could feel confident about having one long road run in before the Cleveland Marathon. But of course, I felt so crappy that I went back to bed.
Saturday: 19 trail miles. I wish I could’ve stayed out for more! Boo work.
Sunday: 32 trail miles. I met up with a friend and we ran a local 50K course. I had my first bonk of this training cycle and thank God my friend had enough food in his pockets for a whole family. His peanut butter and jelly definitely saved my butt.
Total: 69 miles.
Only two more hard weeks of training before I taper! This weekend, I’m running a 50K near Columbus on Saturday and the Cleveland Marathon on Sunday. I can’t wait!
