Another great week of running in great company. There were some frigid days and some gloriously sunny/comparably warm days, can't complain a bit. I felt as though I ran pretty strong all week, yet also harnessed myself enough to make this training effective in lieu of inhibiting any productivity in the coming days. Without further avail, the week in review:
PM- ~8 mi in 1:06 on the MST and up Busbee Mountain with Tim, Adam, and Mike
AM- 7.5 in :55 on the treadmill: warm-up/cool-down + 1 mile in 6:30, 1 mile in 6:00, 2 miles at 5% grade, 1 mile at 10% grade (~1050 ft gain)
AM- 4 miles in 40 minutes with Melissa in Bent Creek: Bent Creek Gap Rd and Lower Sidehill Trail
Day of rest
PM- 3 miles barefoot at Azalea Park with Adam in ~25 followed by a "stretching session" (mostly sunbathing).
Tanawha Marathon, 27 miles in 5:09
Vertic-ALE mile, a few miles in addition to that, totaling at 6 in about an hour.
Totals: 55.5 miles, 8 hours 30 minutes
