Weekly Summary (Feb. 20-26)


Solid week of running before I go back up to 45 miles next week.

  • Sunday: Rest day…recovery.
  • Monday:
    • Morning: Easy 6 miles.
    • Afternoon: Easy 4 miles followed by 3 x Purcell Hills. Purcell is a road near my house that has a very large hill that resembles the ones I will see during my race (SweetWater 50K) in mid-April.  The grade of this hill is absolutely ridiculous and simply walking up it tires me out.
  • Tuesday: Easy four miles..extremely fatigued because of other things happening in life.
  • Wednesday:
    • Morning:  Met up with a friend and drove out to Sawnee Mountain.  Beautiful morning and sunrise and so we just cruised on the trails.  We ran up to the summit twice and did a lot around the base of the mountain.  Excellent view of Georgia from the top. 6.94 miles
    • Afternoon:  30 min trainer ride to help the legs recover… 8.64 miles
  • Thursday: 3 miles easy… recovery from yesterday.
  • Friday: 1 mile warm-up with 3 x (15 min @ 6:40 w/ 3 min rest)  Definitely miss “fast” workouts, although I know 6:40 is nothing compared to what I ran during cross country. 8.66 miles
  • Saturday: At Clemson for the National Scholars Program and supposed to take the day off…. However I needed to de-stress from my interviews, so I decided to run in my Vibrams to the indoor track to catch up with one of my friends from Davidson down at Clemson for a track meet.  3.11 miles
