Yesterday's basketball marathon went well, the Terps won and advanced to the second round on Tuesday and Sarah and I had a relaxing time watching it all. Although I think that we must be paying for it slightly now as we are both dead tired....why is it that you often feel more tired from doing nothing than when you are active?
So now all eyes are on the National Marathon this coming Saturday and after the weekend workouts (as well as the past four weeks) it is a nice recovery and taper week. For today I have a gentle 50min run and then the rest of the week is filled with a few short workouts and brief periods of race pace efforts just to keep the body ticking over. With any luck that will get me to start line on Saturday morning in good shape for the 26.2 mile "jaunt" through the District of Columbia. Later this week I will post the course map and profile (if you are interested that is.....) and also any other cool information about the race.
- Perfect day out on the trails yesterday on the @alchemybicycles at #schaefferfarms . . . . . . #IFB #parvillacycles #MTB #xterratriathlon #mtbracing #marathonmtb
- Kind of a rough day at 6hrs at Woodstock. First 3.5 hrs were fine (even with a 10min stop for horses on the trail) and then stomach shut down. Probably related to stomach bug earlier in the week. Decided not to head out for another lap. Great trails though and a good race from Joe's Bike Shop as always. 📸: @dchammerette . . . . #6HAW #parvillacycles #mtbracing #mtbmarathon #IFB #patapsco #mtb
- Got to ride the trails at Marine Corp Base Quantico yesterday at the Quantico Epic....50 miles of awesomeness despite the muddy trails. Gradually feeling like I have recovered from the #bestbikegameever . . . . . . #marathonmtb #parvillacycles #alchemybicycles #IFB #quanticoepic #cycling #mtbracing
