Weekly Training Summary (5/07/12 – 5/13/12) : From Good to Bad and Back Again

Total Miles This Week – 65.50
Total Miles Prior week – 74.00
Total Miles This Month – 139.50
Total Miles This Year – 1,310.70
30-Day Rolling Total – 322.00

Most of have weeks that start off on the good side, tilt their way toward frustrations, then pick up at the end.  Well, it is far better than a week that is down right awful, which I’m sure we all have every now and then as well.  This week started off with some nice sessions, but mid-way through a little bug and some IT tightness slowed things down.  But, as the saying goes “ “Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.  Things subsided a bit by the weekend, and that led to a nice, solitary long at the park.  A shorter “Mother’s Day” run on Sunday left just enough time to get home for the day’s honoree.

In three weeks we will be heading out to the Badwater racecourse for a 4/5 day Death Valley Training Camp.  It will provide a great opportunity to train in the desert heat, as well as to get in some training miles on portions of the actual course.
