Trail Running Course

Blah Week

Blah basically sums up last week. I didn’t have much spunk in the legs and I was more tired in general for the first half of the week. The previous four week build probably had something to do with that.

This reduced volume week basically consisted of getting it done.

The goof ball event of the week occurred during a trail run when I was surprised by a big spider web going across the trail. I saw the web a split second before running into it and somehow I was able to immediately stop my forward motion. I bailed to the ground and scraped one knee up a bit. What a wuss! I ended up driving home with a bloody knee.

I also purchased Guide to the Superior Hiking Trail to become more familiar with the trail before the race.

The Weekly Low-Down:

run: 35.17 miles (5 sessions: 6 miles-easy, 8 miles-easy, 6 miles- 4×1 mile at Threshold, 6 miles – easy/trail, 9.17 mile-easy/trail)

bike: 40 mins

weights/core: 1 sessions

Happy Training!
