I will take this day to rest from the hard effort yesterday. I feel a little sore as I am pushing the limit on these runs. I am applying the "adaption theory" to my training.
If I increase the demands on the body to function at a higher level it will adapt (or breakdown).
Therefore rest is an essential in this type of training. I learned this theory in College when I was beginning my discovery of running and it's benefits.
I get to jam tonight. The bluegrass group is getting together and this is always a lot of fun.
I look forward to my speed work session this week as I continue to adapt to faster running.
I will probably do a tempo run of 5 miles (inc warm and cool) trying to get at or near a 10K pace of 8:15's for at least three miles. Next day of rest is Sunday and my desire is to log 25-30 miles this week. Snow is on the way, too. I really love running in snow!
