Week of March 24th - 30th, 2014

6mi/40min in Pisgah with Griffin.  Hamstrings are sore today, probably from the hard fall in the race on Saturday.  My knee felt good.  My (R) big toe was a little painful but manageable.

9mi/62min on Grafton Ponds trails with Ferenc and the girls.  Great run.  I felt good and the toe wasn't too much of an issue.  Knee is good.

0mi.  It is Jen's birthday today.  We celebrated by gut gorging at Koto's Japanese Steak House.  Good food and fun times.

Am:  1mi + Circuits with Fit Club.
Pm:  10mi/70min in Pisgah with Griffin.  Good run.  Legs felt good.  I should have worn my micro spikes as there were a lot of icy spots on the trails.  There are some open muddy spots in a very few sunny places.  Full snow free trails is still a long ways out.  Did a solid yoga session after the run.  I need to get to the gym to lift soon.  I set my alarm twice this week but turned it off because I needed more sleep.

9mi/62min on the Putney dirt roads with Ferenc.  Good run.  Of course it was a bit cold and drizzly.  It seems to always be raining and cold when we do this loop.

4mi/30min in Pisgah with Griffin.  The trails are all ice.  My micro spikes work great but poor Griffin was slipping and sliding all over the place.  My legs are tired.  I know I'm out of shape when two back to back days of 10 and 9 miles leaves me tired the following day.

0mi.  I lifted weights and then played basketball for an hour. 

Total for the week:
39mi.  Not a great week.  This could have been a 50 mile week if I ran on Sunday.  I also only lifted once.  I need to increase the mileage and make sure I get to the gym more next week.

  1. That ice just doesn't want to go away! I was in a heavily wooded area today, and there were still patches of ice on the trails...see you next Saturday!
