Training Journal 5/6-5/12

Monday, May 6- Sunday, May 12, 2013: Breakthrough week!  I had a lot of energy and it fueled a pretty big biking week (for me) and running, reaching 87 miles of running/113 miles biking, for a total of 25 hours of movement!  Just a month ago there was no way I could have handled this kind of workout schedule due to some severe over training symptoms.  Taking off two weeks from running seems to have done the trick, plus all my foot niggles seem to be better.  The sun was out this week and it was abnormally warm for Western Washington and my body felt strong and craved being out --- moving.  It feels AMAZING to be back!  I am almost ready to race too.  Getting excited about San Juan Solstice 50 miler in June!  Woohoo!
