JUST 12 MILES? That's it? After last weeks 18 miles in 80 degree heat, with no cloud cover, 12 miles is going to seem like a 10k. Congrats to all that showed up to run, 18 miles is a big deal. This is our drop down week,and a well earned rest.
RECOVER: It takes a good about one week the recover between runs 16 miles and higher. If your still feeling fatigued at the end of the week, take a day off and rest. Your preparing yourself for the next long run, be it 12, or 20.
FOUNDATION TRAINING: Will help you recover from your last long run, and help to keep you injury free.
RUNNING ON THE BIKE TRAIL: Always keep to the right, and be aware of your surroundings.
HYDRATE,HYDRATE,HYDRATE: All week long, and on our long runs. Being hydrated will before you run will make your run a lot easier.
TRAINING FOR THE WEEK:
Tues. 5 miles medium pace. 25 minutes foundation training
Thur. 5 miles medium pace. 25 minutes foundation training.
Fri. 45 minutes foundation training.
Get plenty of rest, eat well and hydrate.
Don't ignore injuries. Seek a professional advice if needed.
Everyone looked good, and I believe there's going to be a lot of P.R.'s on race day.
See you on Sunday.
