Weekend Recap – May 6 & 7, following the training plan

It rained a lot. Ha.

I’m still trying to get used to the constant rain.

My new running training plan continues to September 4 and the 53K race in Vermont. I hope to add more races during the next four months. I spent a few hours tonight looking at races including a marathon on Killington trails and a local 10 miler.

Saturday, I ran 6 trail miles in the Winant Trails area and Sunday I ran 4 road miles. I didn’t swim, bike or do yoga which will be included in following weekends. I’m including more core and stretching after running.

As part of the training plan there will be hiking – a lot of hiking. Hiking was a major component of my trail marathon training when I raced The North Face Endurance Challenge – Utah in Park City last fall. The race had a lot of climbing, and the hiking paid off.

This year with Jay Peak as my A race there must be long trail runs and long hikes.

Also, this weekend, I noticed the blackflies are out. UGH. I have not missed those buggers when I lived out west. Annoying!

I did get to see my nephew, Zeke play soccer. He’s such a star!

I’m looking forward to this week and getting more into a routine ­­­with increasing mileage and sticking to the training plan.
