Roy, give it up! How did it go? We need details!!
Chick, such a bummer that you are injured, but now that you've entered into the acceptance phase, you can see the upside again. Enjoy the running you get as you heal up. Nice fall weather to boot. You'll be back soon enough!
SSLHP, wow, very low HR. I'm impressed. I've never done the proper test when in bed first thing in the morning. Think that's the only way I'll see sub40 readings. But I have noticed readings of low 50s when walking to end of my drive way to start a run. After reading "Once a Runner", keep waiting for my wife to tell my the whole bed is shaking from my heart beats...
DD, some great efforts from you this week. Glad to hear you are feeling strong in these efforts. And yes, HR always rises in the last 2 miles
Andi, go for the 20! And what DD says in terms of training. Sounds like you get plenty of hills now matter where you run (non tready) already.
So been a long week here. Had a good case of DOMS in quads from the race that took most of the week to shake out. But got some striders done Sat in a 7M run then came back with 21M yesterday. LR kept easy the whole way as still on tired legs from race. Felt great most of the way then wanted to do something other than run in the last 2 miles. Miles in the bank though. Debating whether to launch into a subLT tomorrow (today will be no running). I had a cut back week 2 wks ago...race this past Monday, then no fast efforts up to now (but did get 54 miles last week including race). Not sure what the recovery rules are after a 15 miler like that. Anyone? My week, if I proceed normally, would be SubLT efforts Tues/Friday, LR Sun, and easy stuff to round out.
Oh yeah, and my oldest daughter got lice last week. Not just an expert on viruses anymore. Holy sh*t these bugs can take over your life. 3 treatments, 3 full house cleanings, and a whole bunch of picking stuff out of hair later, I think we are clear again.
