rest day, rest week
6 miles, +600′ vert., 1:15. Perch #25. early morning outing (Tuesdays with Stubbs)–realize that it definitely takes me a long time to get rollin’, and pushing the pace only makes me feel worse. I always seem to be warmed by about mile 5 (good for leadville, bad for morning perch runs). cold morning left my knee feeling a little funky but i’m sure it’ll pass. always does.
Wednesday and Thursday
nada–travel to NYC
Friday, Saturday and Sunday
8 miles, no vertical gain, ~3.75 hours. some treadmilling (ugh) and “city hiking” in concrete paradise. great food, no trails.
~14 foot miles, 5 hours, +600′ vert. A very restful week with little running in NYC. Fun to travel with Kels and see the Big City again, but by Sunday I was already missing the trails. Ramping things up in the next couple weeks.
