Apparently two weeks off didn't hurt my fitness too much, but it definitely hurt my ability to recover each day after running. I've been sore since Sunday's 15 miler, so I took it easy on Monday with 4mi and got a 3mi recovery run in this morning.
I still felt a bit tight for this evening's intervals but was able to complete the workout without much trouble--sometimes fast running actually feels better than slow, presumably due to better form when running fast. Even so, I'm sure I'll be sore tomorrow.
Warmup: 2mi easy.
Drills: High knees, high skips, butt kicks, carioca.
Intervals: 5x1mi at HM pace w/ 600m recovery jog.
Cooldown: 2mi easy.
Tomorrow I get a big package from Running Warehouse and hope to hit the treadmill at Keene Fitness in order to test out a bunch of shoes and decide what to keep (looking for a mid weight trail runner for Wakely Dam, in between the Hoka Mafate and La Sportiva Helios). Should be fun!
Total Miles: 11mi
Weekly Total: 18mi
Tuesday: Strength Intervals
