(rest day)

Actually feel pretty good today, will stick with walking but I could do a recovery run.

My URR race strategy was to walk the top quarter of every hill and then walk for 3-5 seconds at the top of every hill.....then rip the flats and downhills as best I could. That worked really well.....

Saturday Feb 20 #

Run 1:39:05 [5] 11.68 mi (8:29 / mi)

Warm up - 2 miles. URR Race = 47:02 for 10km. Cool Down = 3 miles

Friday Feb 19 #

(rest day)

Rest day to get amped up for a hilly 10km on Hoot 5. Have a great race Kip!!!

Thursday Feb 18 #

Run 44:41 [2] 4.38 mi (10:12 / mi)

Tight and sore but functional.

Wednesday Feb 17 #

Run 48:41 [3] 5.33 mi (9:08 / mi)

Lunch run w Eric. A bit quicker than I wanted to go but all good. It's funny Scott Wiebe wants us to go head to head for the last Hoot race and I'm just not into that. Even running with Antonio threw me off my game.

Feels like things are healing so long as I stick with slow 5 milers every day and foam roll/stretch every night.

Tuesday Feb 16 #

Run 53:05 [2] 5.18 mi (10:15 / mi)

Sore but good sore.

I was thinking, why is this so hard? I put in 22 hours of running in January. Went and checked my stats online....from 2018-present I put a TOTAL mileage of 22 hours between Jan and end of I've already done three months of my old plan in one month. Plus I have never done strides or intervals more than twice in a month....which means doing 5 races over 6 weeks is the most I've ever done for speed training.

Point is, no wonder my legs feel like shit....but if I can recover from this....maybe I am in for some major gains this season.

Monday Feb 15 #

Run (Warmup) 16:49 [3] 1.79 mi (9:24 / mi)

Tried to get hot enough to de-layer before starting the race

Run 33:52 [5] 4.43 mi (7:39 / mi)

Segment time = 31 minutes. Started too fast and then tried to run the hill and felt toasted for the rest of the run. Next time I would walk the top half of the hill and definitely make up time on the flats.

Hamstring cramping at Mile 3 and continued to threaten but otherwise I think things are on the up and up with the old legs. Try a recovery run tomorrow in GB.
