"Rest Week" is Over

>> Monday, September 11, 2017

"Rest week" was a success: last week, I cut back my running mileage by 1/3 and took out all intensity. I only did 1 swim last week for the first time in MANY months (usually I do 2, but my shoulder got achy early last week). And I had a few nice rides (2 outdoor for 63 miles, and 45 mins on a bike at the gym). Time to ramp it up a bit more before the TC 10 Mile on Oct 1.

The only thing a rest week is NOT good for is my mental strength. My "long" run of 6 miles yesterday with the boys felt a bit too hard, which is depressing:

A group of "skiers" slowly passed us, and I wanted to shout "MUSH!"

Well, 11+ miles this weekend, maybe 12 later the next week, then 9 days of easier runs before the race!

Here's my TC 10 Mile prediction from Saturday's post. (Which seems SOO not possible after an easy/slow week.)
