Weekly Training Update - Aug 31 - Sep 6

It's been a week since I finished the Green Lakes Endurance Runs 50K. I didn't do any running the two days following the race. My quads were a little sore but they starting feeling better on Wednesday so I went for a short run during my lunch break at work. My legs felt tired but otherwise OK. On Thursday and Friday I ran a little longer and was still feeling tired but the soreness in my legs was completely gone. I was thinking my recovery was going well until I ran in Breakheart today. About an hour into my run I started to get some pain in my left knee. The same pain I experienced during the race due to the camber of the trail in some parts of the course. I'm guessing it's my IT band but I don't know for sure. I'll just have to monitor it and hope it doesn't get any worse.

Total Miles: 20
Longest Run: 8
# of Runs: 4
Avg Run: 5 miles

Today is such a great day to run. I'm thinking about my friends running the Wapack Trail Race [results] today and wishing I was there now. It was wise for me to past on it, but still can't help feeling like I'm missing out on something good.


  1. Your recovery sounds good...careful with the knee!

  2. Dan, hope the knee feels better. Sounds like the IT band. I get that once in a while, but icing and streching do the trick. I, too, thought about Wapack today but ran a 1/2 a few miles away from Wapack, in Swanzey. Maybe next year... Ana
