Training Journal 2/25-3/3

Monday, February 25- Sunday, March 3, 2013: This week was tough. I race directed the second race in the BTRS and struggled to have enough energy to run. My long run was foiled by extreme low energy on Wednesday, severe enough that I took Thursday off (save for a core workout).  Thursday marked the first day of altitude training.  Quickly coming up is my trip to New Zealand (leave on the 6th of March).  Life is busy!
