sailin on the higher ground

January 15, 2008

Quick update here… I hit 184km last week, the most ever for me in a calendar week.  All of my workouts have felt good, which is not always the case when I get to a higher ground with my mileage.  My legs definitely felt it this morning as I struggled my 60 minute run at about 4:20/km pace and definitely was not “sailin”.  In the afternoon I felt way better for my 45 minute run.  It baffles me that I can feel so crappy and so much better on the same day only six hours later. 

I’m going to “race” a 1500m this weekend at U of Toronto with a few of the other Speed River guys.  This is going to be a speed session to get my legs ready for a 3000m in Boston on the 26th.   This is the least I’ve been on the track in the past 10 years in January so it should be pretty interesting to say the least. 

I’m heading South for a couple of training camps this winter.  I’ll touch on that and some other exciting news soon.

    184km, yikes! So great to see that you and DST are taking the carefully planned steps – and you are absorbing it. This weekend might be surprising (in a really good way) as well as interesting. 🙂

    Would you consider BOTH 5+10 for Beijing, once the Eh Standards and all are achieved?

    Hey! Great job on the training. I know exactly how you feel because from Sep. 1 – Jan. 1, I averaged 105 miles (or 168 km) with my top 2-3 weeks at 130 miles. Thank God I am not at that anymore. The fluctuations in how I felt was ridiculous. Anyway, looking forward to seeing you in Boston! Get a good one this weekend!

    skuj, i don’t want to get too far ahead of myself, one step at a time, but yes I’d consider both.
