This week included THREE rest days (thanks to the mini recovery from last week's 50K race - although, with all of the house stuff we've been doing I wouldn't say they have been complete rest days... more like cross-training days ;))... and I was still able to get in over 50 miles of running - BOOM SHAKALAKA! I had 26 miles on the calendar for Saturday, but it's hard to run 26 miles without adding the extra .2 mile to make it an unofficial marathon... I was pleasantly surprised with my speed workout, especially since I was running my "off" portions blind (my watch wasn't showing me pace, so I was just having to pull back a little but not too much during that tenth of a mile). My long run on Saturday started great but by the halfway point I was definitely on the struggle bus. I took more walk breaks than I would have liked (more mental than physical I believe), but that's what you get when you start the run by 3:20am so you can get home and start flooring the condo by 8am... And now it's time to start tapering for the San Francisco Ultra - FINALLY!

How were your workouts this past week?
