Coriander’s Training Log: 5.26.13

My last hard week of training for my first 100 is over! I cannot believe the race is three weeks away and it’s time to taper and rest.

Monday: Rest day.

Tuesday: 5 miles roads. I didn’t have much time before work, so I got in what I could.

Wednesday: 3.25 miles roads. Lunchtime run! It was so hot and humid in the afternoon. I’ve had little heat training, so I’m happy I had the time to go out on my lunch break.

Thursday: 10 miles roads. It was still humid, but not nearly as hot as the day before.

Friday: Unplanned rest day. I knew I had a big weekend coming up and needed the rest and extra sleep.

Saturday: 24 miles, roads and trails. I ran to the park and ran 17 trail miles before heading home.

Sunday: 53 miles trails: 20 am/33 pm. Sunday was the big day — my last day of training before starting to taper! I tried to do as best I could to simulate race day, getting up early, running all morning and then most of the night and into the next day. I had about six hours between runs to rest and eat before the next, but after the night 33 miler (that ended around 2 am), I’m so happy it’s time to taper and run the race! I’m ready!

Total: 95.25 miles.
