Running Log 2011 Week #8

Ahhh! Week 8 is done and gone and as of tomorrow we're falling head first into March.  That means Spring is just around the corner and I can slowly start to shed layers of clothing. This week was an interesting week that started off on a high, but finished with a low.

The high of the week? My amazing Tuesday evening workout.  It was a progression workout from easy to steady to tempo to hard effort.  I finished off the workout with a killer final 5 minutes and felt nearly invincible. It was the first time in months that I had been able to get my legs to turn over so easily and it felt as though I could have unleashed them even more. I was optimistic for the coming weekend's race.

And then the race happened, say hello to my week's low point. I had nearly uncontrollable stomach cramps and the urge to find a restroom throughout the entire 10km I raced. I woke up this morning feeling a little under the weather so I think what I felt yesterday was the start of the flu bug.  Great, just great. I'm curious to see where this goes, and I will remind my body that I refuse to take days off of running. So it best heal itself while I sleep at night.  If I have to sleep 12 hours a night, I will do it.

So I ran 61.5km this week in 4 days. I think it's high time I toss in a 5th day of 6-10 km to start getting myself over 70km/week.  I was hoping this would be my week to attempt that, seeing as how I am not sore at all from the race yesterday, but this flu like bug has me slightly worried.
