May 5 - May 19
These last two week I have really been trying to ramp up my training before I have to taper for Shadow of the Giants. It has been more of a struggle than I would have liked, but I think its going well.
Sunday: Traveled all day back from the weekend in the Siskyous, got home late.
Monday: No run, woke up late, and just went to work.
Tuesday: am 16 mi. + 6,000 ft. Ran with Peter and Chris, tagged Mt. Lowe and Gabriel. I had to turn around early to make it to work on time.
pm 4x1600m repeats: After a little confusion of weather I had to pay to run on a local track I was able to put in some faster miles, but overall I just felt tired.
Wednesday: Worked, and went to the climbing gym in the afternoon.
Thursday: 7 mi +2,500 ft. I put in a sustained effort from my house up to Echo Mountain and back for a total of around 55 mins.
Friday: 21 mi + 8,000 ft. Ran the Three Peaks (Baldy, Thunder, and Timber?) with Dom and Chris. I was feeling extra tired. Nonetheless a fun day in the mountains. (Sorry, no pics. I forgot to charge my camera)
Saturday: 5mi + 1,000 ft. Hot and tired.
Sunday: 17mi + 4,000 ft. I took it a little easier, but still got some good turn over on some more mellow trails; trying to prepare for Shadow of the Giants.
Monday: 13mi + 4,000 ft. Mike and I tagged Mt Lowe for a nice recovery run.
Tuesday: 5x1600m. I felt good and well rested for some quality fast miles.
Wednesday: 7mi +2,500 ft. From the house to Echo. I didn't feel extra fast, but I did it a whole minute faster than the week before.
pm 4mi ran home from work.
Friday: 21mi + 4,000 ft. A flatter long run with Dom in the Santa Monica Mountains. Warm and Humid
