Low gravity in the fortress of solitude

Mile 5 in particular;  zip zip –  I attribute it to the lunar eclipse (and the training effect).

The end of last week through the weekend my motivation was in a lil’ dip. I decided to take Saturday off and not try to push a long run (>15m) on Sunday. I think it was the right move and had a snappy 8 miler on Sunday morning.  Still ended up north of 30 miles for the week, but I’m not sure I had the right mix of runs. It could be that I’m just still a little degraded from the race 2 weeks ago; so I’m not going to worry about it too much.

I call this section “the haymaker”. The grade is somewhere between 20 and 30 %. It’s kinda like getting punched in the stomach. Best not to look at the top of the hill from the bottom – it’s just demotivating.

V02max is on the rise. Yay genetics (thanks mom and dad).
