12/2/11: Training Recap & Great Falls Pictures

First off, here is what I've been up to over the last week:

  • Saturday: 14 miles easy. I was still beat up from lots of racing and hard running, and my legs were shot. Took it very easy.

  • Sunday: 17 miles, last 8 @ 6:30. Still recovering, but finally had a little bit of pep in the legs. Ran the last 8 miles at 6:30, which actually felt pretty easy.

  • Monday: 12 miles easy. Lifting + core work.

  • Tuesday: 5 miles easy @ 7:40.

  • Wednesday: 10 miles with 4x1mi @ 5:41. My legs didn't feel as fresh as I had hoped, but I still managed 4x1mi in 5:49, 5:42, 5:39, 5:34. The first two intervals felt easy. Last one was tough.

  • Thursday: 12 miles easy @ 7:40. Lifting + core work.

  • Friday: Off (work travel)

  • Total: 70 miles
Now that it has turned cold and the leaves have fallen off the trees, here are some late fall pictures from a trip out to Great Falls the day before the Potomac Heritage race.

Great Falls in all of its glory.

Kayaking anyone?

Eve was very impressed by Great Falls
