Training Journal 12/31-1/6

Monday December 31, 2012-Sunday, January 6, 2013: I ran and won a marathon on Monday (even though I was supposed to do 50 mile pace, I went just a tad faster) then biked the rest of the week to rest my feet.  I was able to get  a lot of biking in during the week, reaching a total of 11 hours of biking, all but 2.3hrs of it inside on my road bike with the trainer. I would've been outside, but it has been cold and rainy.  I was also able to get a good deal of CYS (Core/yoga/strength) during the week.  Right now, I am writing from Oahu where I will be doing some running in preparation for the HURT 100 mile race on the 19-20th.  I also ended the week with a cold, which now that I am in Hawaii, will hopefully go away!
