Another week in the books... A slight build from last week, but that's fine; in my mind, the name of the game at this point is staying healthy, so fewer miles is not big deal... That said, since it was such a slight build, I might try for one more high mileage week before tapering down. We shall see, I suppose...
Also, I managed to re-name the facebook page for the upcoming run to Sumatanga:
4 before youth easy, 5 after very easy with Aaron.
Legs a little heavy to start, but loosened up nicely.
More traffic than usual; road work on Holmes to dodge.
10 solo (1:18:09), then 4 easy with Anna. Felt fine; legs a little dead at the end.
3 before youth (22:24) and 4 after with Aaron. Easy effort with quickened pace toward the ends of both runs.
TN River really high, so flooded parts of Pt. Mallard trail around ankle-shin deep. First time a fish of any appreciable size has ever had to swim out of my way while running...
Easy around Huntsville. Very windy.
AM: 1 mile warmup, then Steeple Chase 8k (30:30, 2nd o/a). Cold and wet. Moderate effort.
PM: 6 (45:11) easy around Oak Lea
