Under normal circumstances I might not have used this week as a recovery. And, I guess it’s hard to call a week where you still increase your long run a recovery week, however, I reduced the mid-week runs to two with a total of a little under twelve miles. It turned out to be a pretty good decisions as my first run of 16 miles felt pretty good.
I got pretty busy with a paper and ended up dropping all cross-training, with only one cycle commute, so I’ll just make sure I ramp things up next week and hit 35-36 miles, beginning to focus a little on speedwork. I held strong at the same weight and would really like to get my cycle commuting regular enough to help me drop a pound or two (or my snacking down a bit).
Monday weigh-in: 168.8 (again)
