Training: 8-ish miles, 58m, piles and piles of hills
Resting HR: 44
Sleep: 6.5h, 6/10
Legs: 6/10, general fatigue from a longer run yesterday, dragged a little on the uphills
Post Run: 7/10
Total: 66 in 7 sessions
All in all a decent down week, and if I can manage to lay off like this for seven more days the body will hopefully be receptive to the idea of starting a marathon build. Looking back through the log shows me that these three weeks (2 down, 1 to go) are probably the easiest I've taken things since I started trying to follow Lydiard's training back in the summer of 2005. It's been a bit of a blow to the ego to put bigger miles and workouts aside, but it's part of an effort by me to really focus on optimal training this cycle instead of always pushing for maximum training.
Feel free to remind me of this later on when you catch me slipping back into old habits.
