I decided to bounce back the miles this week after completing my first ultra distance in sometime. Next week I intend to breech into a 40 mile week and I don't foresee myself looking back after that.
After working up a nagging stone bruise and at the pleading of lingering fatigue in the legs from the Art Loeb, I elected to take this one off and start the week on Tuesday.
AM- Grocery Run (quite literally) with Mel and Luna, about 2 miles in 20 minutes. Wore the Mizuno-clunkers to pad the bruise, it felt alright
PM-4.2 miles in 28:09 at Carrier Park. Tested out the new Inov-8 Roclite 285s with little irritation to the stone bruise.
Where did the time go?! With final projects and papers due Thursday, I just couldn't get a workout in.
PM- 5.5 miles in 50 minutes, mostly on trail around UNCA with Mel and Luna in the Inov-8s
PM- ~7 miles in 53 minutes at The Dump with Adam and Luna, about mid-way through the stone bruise made its presence known
AM- ~13 miles in ~2:40 with plenty of elevation (~3500 ft?) in Monteat. Exhausting, stone bruise quite tender by the end. Great running with some WNC Trailrunner folks.
