Tapering to Rodeo Valley 50k on March 16. Oh how I love the taper!

2018: Mendocino Coast 50k - April 21
I'm really trying to build my mileage without breaking anything... so far, so good with just over 42 miles last week and I hope for about the same this week. Key for me is getting that long run back up to par. Last week's 10 miler was my longest run in many many weeks (as in, many), so I've got my work cut out for me.
Monday: 5.2 hilly miles after work, .4 mile walk
Tuesday: 1.6 mile walk at lunchtime, 6.2 mile run after work with .2 mile walk c/d
Wednesday: Rest Day
Thursday: 9.6 GA miles in mid-30's temps (!), .4 mile walk c/d
Friday: 5.2 hilly miles, .3 mile walk
Saturday: 7.1 miles of hills, .6 mile walk c/d
Sunday: 12.1 miles run, .5 mile walk c/d
Totals: 45.6 miles run (the most in a long time!), 4 miles walked
Nice to get my long run back up over 10 miles, but this was really hard. Gotta remember to not run hills the day before the long run!

Late to the game again!
Mon: approx. 2.8 kilometers on the beach. I was at the coast for work for 3 days. Added on a swim in the hotel swimming pool plus a mandatory boot camp class on the beach.
Tue: approx. 4.7 kilometers on the beach with some really fast colleagues. I made the mistake of running harder than I actually could. Especially since we were on the beach. I've been running nearly all my workouts on the TM, so this beach running was ridiculously hard!
Wed: Only 2.5 kilometers out on the road at home, cause my legs felt incredibly tired from those beach runs.
Thu: taking an involuntary rest day cause I forgot to turn the alarm back on on my phone. When I was away for work I didn't need to get up before 7AM, so had turned the 5h00 alarm and the 6h00 alarm (in case I fell asleep again) off. I guess a rest day won't hurt
Fri: It's been a long week of 12 hr work days. I was tired and sleepy this morning, so I'm rather pleased with myself that I did get a good 5K run in on the TM.
Sat: 2.5 kilometer doggie run. It was raining, so Spike didn't dig or run off, he just wanted to get home I was supposed to add a strength training w/o but that just didn't happen. But I did get me a brand new pair of Asics GT-2000 for the incredible sum of 150 euros I'm ordering another pair online at RunningWarehouse for only $90 (approx. 70 euros). In addition, I bought a second pair of compression socks. They really help keep my tight calfs warm and loose. Too hot to wear on the TM, but nice for outside
Sun: Nice 8.2 kilometers in the rain and strong icey wind. I only really noticed the wind when running between the open fileds
BTW, my pathetic February mileage (44K kilometers) was more than my monthly mileage of the past 6 months. So I guess I did OK.
Totals: 25.9 kilometers of running and no strength training of any kind.
Dutchie I go running in the early morning, before my brain figures out what I'm up to.
