A great week of training, most of which was spent in southern Utah. After last Saturday's "birthday adventure" (26.21 mi skate ski, 26.3 mi road bike, & 26.23 mi trail run) I headed to Utah on Sunday morning. I met up with a few friends in Bryce Canyon NP that night. On Monday we did a 26 mile point-2-point run in Bryce on the Under The Rim Trail, then on Wednesday ran the full Zion Traverse. With a couple small add-ons we made it a solid 51 mile day. So in a 5 day stretch, I did two full marathons and a 50 miler... just for fun. That put me at 137 miles in 7 days on singles, plus skate skiing nearly 40 miles and road biking 26 miles.
Now that it has been a few days since the trip, my legs feel pretty good other than a slightly tight left achilles (which I felt before I even did my birthday miles). I decided to take an easy day on Saturday and only did low impact activities. I want to let my body recover a little extra and make sure the achilles tightness does not turn into tendinitis. Next week its back to work, and I will probably take a down week just to continue with the recovery. I am contemplating one last race for this season, which would be in January. That gives me a week of recovery, 4 solid training weeks, and 10-14 days of tapering before the race. With the weather showing sunshine for the foreseeable future, I might as well take advantage of it and stick to the trails for now.
