I did get in a couple of runs done in Maine..HOT though. And a bit of swimming, too.
All base-pace MAF-style running @ 125bpm-ish. I'm gradually burning off the fresh fried clams and 'lobsta' rolls YUM. For me 30 miles is a good baseline mileage when I'm not training specifically for any race.
7 day smoothed mileage going UP! Now i need to find a way to keep track of my swimming....hmmm.
Still enjoying seeing the huge spike in 7-day mileages from the marathon double 8)
NO RACES SIGNED UP FOR yet! Ack! We have more travel lined up for the fall..right in the middle of marathon build-up season...so no PR attempts but would be nice to do a race or two.
Perhaps a peak for the spring, then, but I will do a course I know works and should be cool...I won't waste heavy training investment for an unknown course like I did at Tacoma.
The swimming is still going well but I have a long way to go. My teacher set me free for a while to work on my form ("You know what to do.."). Right now I can identify when I'm doing the wrong things...I just have trouble fixing them all at the same time. But awareness is 80% of the battle! So I just work on each in turn, using drills etc to focus.
