Weekly Summary 01/27/14-02/02/14

Mileage: ~54; Elevation: ~4,500′

Monday: Rest day. I felt really positive about January overall and didn’t want to overextend myself, so I decided a rest day after a long weekend was the smart play.

Tuesday: 6.21 miles. Indian School TH hill workout. Ran a few repeats up the steep ~400M start of the Powerline trail, but my legs were feeling sluggish and I forgot my headlamp, so I didn’t push things too far.

Wednesday: 6.77 miles. My standard neighborhood recovery run loop. Almost every Wednesday I have an easy, recovery run planned and almost every time I feel like I’m running too fast. I need to do a better job of focusing on keeping it mellow on my easy days.
