O24 2020: Week 5

Temperatures got hot. I melted a bit. Also, my one foot is feeling a bit off, so I’m going to rest a bit more and then get back at it as I can. Bit of a setback, but again, I’m reminding myself that I would be in taper mode at this point.

  • Monday: Rest.
  • Tuesday: 8 miles.
  • Wednesday: 5 miles.
  • Thursday: 7 miles. Speed work: Tempo: 14min/4R/12min.
  • Friday: Rest.
  • Saturday: 10 miles
  • Sunday: 6 miles. Slept in after a socially distanced party/campfire for my goddaughter’s first birthday, so didn’t go out until the heat of the day. Part of me thought it would be great heat training, but I went out too fast and there isn’t much shade on my loop (I think I might have been okay on the trail). I’ll try for that 20 mile this upcoming weekend.
  • Long run fuel: Tailwind.
  • BWF/Core work: Just one workout this week, again, just feeling down.
  • Stretching: In need of a reset here too. Back at it this week.
  • Great Virtual Race Across Tennessee 1000K progress (1021K): 147/634miles. There’s one other runner with the same last name, so I like to think I’m chasing him. He’s still ahead, but I closed the gap a bit this week!
