Schedules. I need to make one soon.
Work out schedule, that is.
I'm not doing a speedwork session this morning. That was the plan, until I woke up yesterday with some pretty lower back pain. I don't know whether I slept funny or it is due to working 5 of the last six days, being on my feet for nine hour days. I'm guessing it's the nine hour work days.
Yesterday I did run my 10K planned route, but the back really hurt, jarred with every step. After working yet another shift, I took a bubble bath and pretty much went straight to bed.
This morning, it feels much better, but I'm not in the mood for speedwork. 4 miles around the block is going to have to do it.
I do have the Groundhog 50K this Saturday. This speedwork training sessions aren't really fitting in very well with the 'tapering' and recovery from an ultra. These days, I actually take the recovery a little more seriously than the 'tapering' portion of the training.
This is my fall running schedule:
September: Groundhog 50K
October: Self Supported 100 Mile FA
November: Slim Pickins Weekend (FA)
December: URINEO 50 Miler (FA)
There may be more little races thrown in there, like doing some 5K's as my speedwork sessions, but that's my fall plan. Cost of these 4 events? $65. (That's the cost of the Groundhog 50K last minute entry). If you love to run, and don't need a medal or a T-shirt, then explore some FA events.
