I was correct on the metaphor

I saw an interview with Bono yesterday, and he talked about the title of their recent album.

He said it had to do with hope, and no limits (I don't recall exactly what he said, but I think I got it right).

After an awesome fist half of the week, I decided to "dial it back" a bit for fear of over training and burn out.

I ended up following my last Sundays' 31 miler with a 20 miler on Wednesday. Sounded like a good idea, but was paying for it on Thursday.

Friday was a hill workout on the deathmill, with only 5 intervals.

Took today off. 58 miles for the week. I am happy with that as I know it is important to dial it back every 3-4 weeks.

Tomorrow is the March HADD test. Are you ready John?

Can't wait for the results.


No Human Race 8k for me. After sitting down with the wife to figure out when I could get in a "really long run", it turns out March 21st works best. So that's the date at Afton if anybody wants to join. And it's semi taper after that.

58 miles on an off week? You are really running some serious miles! So when is this Chippewa thing?

Runnin-From-The-Law said...

Ok - I saw on your sidebar and answered my own question.

So are you doing the Zumbro thing or the Chippewa thing?

There - I cleaned up my calendar.

I am not good at the "house keeping" aspects of my blog.

I will be helping out at Chippewa.

cool. hopefully it's not too wet at Afton that weekend - I'll be up for a long run before a long run in VA following weekend.

I might join you at Afton - haven't been on a real trail since September - and I might take my usual post watching the Human Race about the 2 mile mark.
