|a step back after some hibernating time over the holidays (red line)|
After a lazy holiday period with low miles and gaining 10 pounds I knew this was going to be a step back. 30 seconds per mile slower than the last few months looks like a large chunk to give up, but all is not lost. I’m not sweating it. I felt really strong through the run today and know I’ll recover quickly. Although the recovery advisor on my Forerunner recommends me resting 48 hours. Huh.
A couple of weeks of solid running and shedding the holiday pounds should have me right where I left off in late Nov/early Dec.
out of hibernation
So the rest period is over and now it’s time to get out on the roads and trails again. I have a 50k this Saturday I’m looking forward to. Pistol Ultra. It’s on a paved greenway, so should be a PR for the distance. 4:30 to 5:00 seems like a reasonable time to expect. I don’t plan on pushing it too hard.
