Training for the week 4/30 to 5/6 was about recovering from having run Big Sur Marathon (race report coming soon), my 73rd marathon, so that I could launch full-on into training for Canadian Death Race in short order. And that’s exactly what I did. I recovered and then started training for my target race with a 3 hour mountain run up and down and up and down, and up and down and again, Wachusett Mountain.
Although I am not focusing on Mount Washington training this year — I will train through it while keeping my eye on the real prize (Canadian Death Race) — the Wachusett run proved good training for the rockpile, which is good because I don’t know how much decent training for it I will get. Again, the focus will be Death Race.
Mon: 2.5 miles, easy – road (Monterey, CA)
Mon-II: 7 miles, easy – road (San Francisco, CA – ran over Golden Gate Bridge!)
Tues: 4 miles, hills – road (San Fran: up and down x 2 the infamous Hyde and Lombard Streets)
Wed: 4 miles, easy – road
Thurs: 4 miles, easy – road
Fri: 7 miles, easy – road
Sat: 19.5 miles, 3:00:44, long, 8 x hills – mountain/road/trail
Sun: 6 miles, social – trail
Total miles: 54 miles
Goal for next week is to get on with hill repeats and lace in a long trail run to continue Death Race training.
