I think your plan of just easing back into hard training is a good one. I hope you feel better soon!

Good plan. This might be a good time to do some light weight core work and yoga/stretching.

I wonder how many college XC teams burn-out their athletes?

Thanks again for putting on the training--just a shame more people didn't show up for it. I think the Salmon Creek map is about my favorite of all the CNYO maps, with the very open woods and the very detailed terrain. Unfortunately it is a long enough drive to get there from my place that I don't get up there very often to use it. I'm sure that more sessions up there would help speed up my decision-making processes going through all those mini bumps and depressions. And I would agree with the idea that backing off a bit on the harder training for a few weeks is likely to be beneficial (though depending on how novel a virus happens to be in the prior experience of your individual immune system, I suspect that some of the time it may still take a frustrating number of days or weeks to recover even if your body is completely fresh when you pick up the original infection).

Still planning to run at the Boulder Dash?

No Boulder dash for me will be at boston.
