Yes, more of the same I'm afraid. Time has been minimal for blog reading and writing, so here are the goods for the past two days:
Wednesday: Got a late start after getting to bed at midnight. Calf muscles got a workout the evening before from standing on a forward-slanting floor while watching Modest Mouse perform. Worth the sleep deprivation and the $38. For the run I scooted around my normal loops for 15 miles and just kept things easy. In the evening I met the gang from the shop for another 6 and listened to their stories from Cross-country Club Nationals in Ohio. Very jealous.
Thursday: Hit the road late again after Finn woke up an hour earlier than planned. We hung out, read and played with Little People until Haiden and Kiera finally woke up later. Once again I was crunched for time, but I managed 14 miles. The legs felt it a bit today, and I was definitely a little fatigued from either the intervals on Tuesday or a combination of the intervals, the concert and the double on Wednesday.
I'm still shooting for making this my highest volume week, but the weather early this week has left me playing catch up while simultaneously trying to stay ahead of the recovery curve. Yes, that last sentence did sound like ordering the vegetarian taco with extra bacon.
Training: Today, 14 miles, 1h38m, 7:06 pace
Yesterday pm., 6.2 miles around 7:05 pace
Yesterday am., 15 miles, 1h43m, 6:54 pace
