Training Journal 4/1-4/7

Monday, April 1-Sunday, April 7, 2013: This week I began to accept the foot pain that I have been feeling as a need to take additional time off, that coupled with more research on "over training syndrome" has me wondering if I should take a more prolonged break from running.  One thing that really convinces me is my very low energy and lack of motivation to run or cross train, which is very unusual for me.  I still managed to get almost 70 miles of running with 11,000+ ft/climbing. 
 Monday: Drove home (7.5 hrs) From the Gorge, couldn't find time/energy to run.
Tuesday: 8 mile at tempo pace with 1 minute fast running per mile. 997 ft/mile
Wednesday: 19 mile run from home to hemlock, raptor, ridge, and home.  Felt very low energy partway though. 3600 ft/climb.
Thursday: 6.5 mile run Sehome hill/boulevard loop. 1,085 ft/climb
Friday: 15 mile easy trail run to Padden, through horse trails and back. 2,123 ft/climb
Saturday: 12 miles Pine and Cedar Trails. 2,988 ft/climb.  Felt a wee bit better in the lungs today, but left foot is putting up a fight!  Sure looks like I have to admit I have some PF going on in the left foot with increasingly bad sesamoiditis.
Sunday: 8 miles, 600 ft/gain. Sehome loop

Running Miles: 68.5 miles
Running Elevation Gain: 11,393 ft/climbing
Cross Training:  3 days core work
Hours: 13. 5 hours

New hats for my trail series arrived!

  1. Candice,

    I broke both of my sesamoids in my left foot and you should know once it heals you will be fine, unless you go stomping around the house chasing after an unruly animal.
