My running mileage was down for the week. Anything over 6 miles and my back really acts up for the rest of the day (and the next day). I was able to successfully run 10 miles on Saturday but it was no where near marathon pace or even my ‘comfortable’ pace from a month ago. The legs are doing fine.
I have also noticed that I have great breakthrough cycling workouts on the trainer in the early part of the week. But as the fatigue (and I am not even training hard right now) builds I can not achieve the high power outputs. I am going to make a change next week and schedule the high out session in the first part of the week. I hop to keep continuing to have success.New totals for the week:
SWIM – 0 yards
BIKE – 96.16 miles (+ 10 miles)
RUN – 28.50 miles (- 5.1 miles)
Total time was 9 hours which was all cycling and running. Absolutely zero swimming and zero strength training. I am going to attempt to add several hours to both of these activities.
At the injury prevention clinic last night I got my shoulder taped by Dan. I also got to run in on the hydro treadmill – I’ll tell you more later in the week.
