This week I wanted to pull back and recover from last week's 90 miles, which left me with an ailing left foot. Plus, with a weekend getaway with my wife and some friends of ours planned, a reduced-mileage weekend was perfect timing. Call me conservative but I'd rather build up to 100 miles and stay healthy than jump into it too fast and get injured, ending my plans for both the Cleveland Marathon and Mohican 100.
AM: 10.2 miles in 1:15:00 - treadmill/tempo run. Took it easy first few miles, then exploded.
PM: 4.2 miles with Ted F. at Chautauqua Institution, Lake Chautauqua, NY
AM: 7.5 miles with Ted. F. at Chautauqua Institution, Lake Chautauqua, NY. Very cold. Finished with a 5:55 mile (time by GPS). Came back home to more than two feet of snow. The roads were too bad to run, so I got on the trusty treadmill for a short tempo run, which brings me to my PM workout.
PM: 6.5 miles - treadmill/tempo run. My miles were as follows: 1) 7:30; 2) 6:39; 3) 6:35; 4) 6:31; 5: 6:31; 6) 6:31; 6.5): 3:30.
Total miles for the week: 61.7
