This was a drop back week.
I wasn’t planned to run much and I ran less than I planned. The last gasps of winter made me reconsider my run on Thursday night. It’s rare that I’d let weather beat me, but this week, just once, I did, in order to get the full ‘rest’ out of it.
As a result, I feel more tired than if I’d run the full week. More tired than if I had run intervals that night, and 10 miles today.
I ended last week with a race. A 10k, because this year is a year for distance running. I haven’t run a 10k since 2011, and so my PR was woefully out of date, so Sunday’s 51:15 was a PR by almost 9 minutes.
But that’s all there was this week. Bare facts. Stripped down basics. No poetics.
