|Utah: Ragnar Wasatch Back|
I respect my one and only body by...
- Fueling for strength
- Resting for recovery
- Believing for magic
Shift from thinking to feeling--feel yourself accomplishing your goal. Take that feeling out of your head and put it into your heart. Embrace it as the reality.
~Erin Taylor, Founder & Head Coach of Jasyoga
My first week of base training went well. No hiccups or surprises. I ran a bit more than I intended and didn't run a traditional long run because my mileage for the week was good. My goal was to run 39 miles and ended up running 41.
Base-training: Week One Recap
Monday: 3.1 miles easy run (using heart rate monitor, bpm <150)
Thursday: 5.4 miles easy run (run on treadmill) + TRX class
10-12 miles long run 3.2 miles easy run
Total mileage: 41.5 miles
Week 2 is a bit unusual because I'm traveling to Utah for Ragnar Wasatch Back. It's my 4th Ragnar race and my first with an Oiselle team (Bird Machine). My long run will be my 2nd leg of the race (9.5 miles) estimated to start at 12:30 am Saturday.
