Run Efficient: Taper week One 7/2 - 7/8

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Taper week One 7/2 - 7/8

Monday - Wohelo trails, 1.1.  Jogged with Alison and Francesca on a gorgeous day.

Tuesday - Stroudwater, 6.5 @8:16.  A little quicker than I intended but after Sunday's slow run I felt like moving a little.

Wednesday - Off

Thursday - Blackstrap area, 9 @8:23.  Fun hill workout from the Hardy Rd. parking lot up to the barrel.  Did 6 repeats at a steady pace.

Friday - Robinson Woods, 9.28 @7:54.  Nice and spirited run out to Fort Williams and back on yet another gorgeous day.  Picked it up a bit along the ocean and road section, and took it easy on the trails.

Saturday - Agamenticus area, 21 @10:14.  Burn, break, bonk.  (Burn) Ran the first 7 on the mountain, hitting random routes up and down sucking wind and sweating profusely the whole time.  (Break) Ran the second seven at tempo on the dirt road, hoping to average under 8's, but the legs were toast and felt real sluggish.  (Bonk) The last seven ended up being a slog running on the road in the opposite direction as the dirt road in stupid heat and humidity, and of course deer flies.  The route is basically downhill the first 3.5, then back up.  There was definitely a bit of walking on the way back.  I tested out soup-in-a-bottle for VT100 and it worked real well.  I'll use it for the race to eat on the run.

Sunday - Scarborough Downs loop, 6.3 @7:29.  Steady pace to test the legs for the Scuffle coming up.  Felt okay, but nowhere near as speedy a workout as it felt. 

Time:  7:58
Distance:  51.2
Elevation:  4235

The Downs loop is from my place down 114, along Rt 1, then on the super-flat road that goes by Scarborough Downs, and back on Payne Rd, then 114. It's really flat the whole way and I switch up directions for variety.
