Our son Finn just can't seem to catch a break this week. He's been running a fever for days, and while he's done throwing up it seems now that he's getting a few molars. As a result sleep has been sorely lacking this week, and I've never been more grateful to be recovering from a marathon rather than training for one. Here's how the week went down:
Everything was pretty easy, with the exception of a few accelerations and a few quicker miles while breaking in some new racing flats. Next week is all about getting ready for a 10K on Sunday. Yes, it will be two weeks after the marathon, but unfortunately I don't write my club's race schedule. I don't expect a miracle, but I think if I can keep recovering I should still be able to be in the mix a bit.
Training: 1/20, 8 miles, 59m, 7:21 pace, lots of trails
1/19, 8 miles, 55m, 6:56 pace
