I’m a little late posting my week but here it is:

Mon – off (after 13.5 miles Sunday)

Tues – easy 8.2 @ 8:20 pace

Wed – 12 @ 7:53 pace

Thurs – off

Fri – 10.25 @ 7:58 pace

Sat – 13.6 @ 8:04 pace

Sun – Alterra Coffee Bean Classic WORS event: 3.1-mile trail run (mostly twisty single track in the woods) in 21:08 (placing 2nd in 35-49 age group) followed a half hour later by the 10-mile Citizen mountain bike race which I finished in 50:19, after crashing once within the last half mile (grrr)

So, 47.15 miles of running, which is steep for me.

This week, after 25 miles of mountain biking Tuesday night, I’m feeling a little run down. Will dial it back before Saturday’s half marathon trail run in Redgranite — which I don’t plan to “race” but incorporate into a longer run by doing a few miles just before the gun sounds.
