Week of October 18th-24th

Monday: Very sore today. I walked 1 hour today trying for a little active recovery. Seemed to help.

Tuesday:am- 3mi / 30min w/health class. Nice and slow, feeling a little better.
pm- 3mi / 22min on Ashuelot Rail Trail w/Griffin. Still some soreness, but not too bad.

Wednesday: 2mi / 16min w/health class. Had an xc meet. Josh and Ashleigh won. States on Saturday, I'm excited.

Thursday: am- 2mi / 16min w/health class.
pm- 10mi / 67min in Pisgah w/Griffin. Saw a barred owl and a porcupine. Legs really tired, I guess I'm not recovered from the marathon yet. Nice chilly day.

Friday: am- 3mi / 24min. w/health class
pm- 13mi / 1:25 in Pisgah w/Ferenc, Boj, Fyffe, and the girls. Tough run. My legs are toast. Started to bonk a bit at the end.

Saturday:am- 3mi / 21min in Friedsam Forest w/Griffin and Jimmy, legs felt dead.
pm- 2mi / 15min at xc meet.

Sunday: 13mi* / 1:21 - Groton Forest 9.5mi trail race - 60:04 2nd place. Crappy race. My legs clearly have not recovered from the marathon. They were hurting early. I had trouble with the downhills and twisty turns on this course. Usually, I really enjoy this course and have fun on the roller coaster terrain. Not today! The winner hammered a new course record. He was flying!

Total: 54mi - Not a great week. I really should have taken more days off, or just not raced on Sunday. My legs are pretty fried. I'm gonna take next week off from running. My goal is to get in the gym 3 times and lift. This will be a nice break for my legs and mind. I'm gonna start training for indoors after my rest. The goal will be to break 4:20 in the mile. I'd also like to break 2min again in the 800m and run a sub 9min. 3000m.

  1. Sub 9:00 3000 is way too conservative. Try sub 8:40!
