This week I have taken 3 rest days.
Thursday off as I went out for a colleagues birthday drinks after work (too lazy to get up in the morning)
Friday off as I was moving house all day long (The girlfriend would not have been impressed if I had taken off for a run!)
Sunday off as I just dont feel like running today. Shin bones feel a little sore and I just fancy enjoying some quality time in my new place.
I've had a pretty decent month so a light recovery week will do me good. I will be having another day off tomorrow as I am travelling interstate and just wont have the time. I guess this is a fairly good taper for the marathon coming up in October.
Monday - 20.35km - road - 1hr 40 mins (Vibram 5 Fingers)
Tuesday - 20.32km - road - 1hr 37mins
Wednesday - 20.08 - road - 1hr 44mins
Thursday - rest
Friday - rest
Saturday - 28km - road - 2hrs 17 mins (28 degrees)
Sunday - rest
Total - 88.75 km - 7hr 20mins
A satisfactory week. I had a great run on Tuesday and with the marathon coming up on the 9th i guess now is a good time to start increasing speed and cutting down mileage whilst being careful to not overcook myself.
I had no trail runs this week which is the only disappointment but im not going to beat myself up over it.
