Good solid week. I was planning on only 8 hours this week, which would have been quite the jump from last week, but things happen and it ended up with a little higher total. Heel has been behaving, laser is doing it's work on my Achilles and I got a great massage Friday from Sarah at Montgomery Massage
Mon - AM Strength - Noon BioFlex
Tues - AM 28' - Noon Strength - PM 1:32 (Running Drills)
Wed - Noon - 1:00 (Descided I needed different shoes for easier trails. My Mizuno's are too soft and the Wildcats too stiff, sound like Goldie Locks, so picked up a pair of Crosslites on the way home - MEC is a dangerous place (; )
Thu - AM - 1:06 (Out at 4:45 to hit the trails while it is still dark. Feeling much more relaxed and confident out there, of course the new Myo XP helps significantly - thanks D.) - Noon Strength
Fri - Massage (see above)
Sat - 1:11 - Trails in the rain - Loved it. Ran 31' solo and then met Kimber for another 40' - The trails look so different in the rain - dark and beautiful - loved being out there, could have spent the day just running various loops.
Sun - 3:25 - Kimber and I met Eric at P7 in the Gatineaus and headed out/back on Trail #1 - not too technical, but some nice hills. We have missed running with Eric, good times - we just ran, talked, laughed and had fun in the woods. 1km before the end Eric and I left Kimber to run another extended loop, and Kimber went on the Finish the 25km - her longest ever. (way to go HB). So Eric lead me on a 9km loop trails 6-17-22-8 - super technical stuff. I use to bounce over this, but the legs aren't there just yet, still fun to run and I survived it. Eric is so ready for the 50 Miler at Haliburton. Ran the whole distance in the Crosslites - they were perfect, no issues at all.
Sunday was a good confidence boost for me for my pacing duties at Haliburton. This week will be more of the same - likely not at high as I plan to run a double 21km Sun/Mon.
