Week's Summary

Despite having run the Duke City Marathon this week, I really loaded up on the miles.  I was actually itching to run on Tuesday but that was my travel day from Albuquerque to Utah.  Normally I take a minimum of 2 days off after a marathon and I had some soreness but not a lot.

I still have to maintain my fitness for Vegas, which is about a month away.  If the weather cooperates, I am hoping to hit around 4 hours for that marathon.  So with a solid base, I want to get in a bit of speed work.

I also felt a lot less soreness after Duke City.  While I was dehydrated and sort of cranky afterwards, this marathon proved to have the least post race soreness I've experienced in a while.  Maybe I am getting used to this thing.

There is also a part of me that is worried about overuse injuries.  So far (knock on wood)  I've managed to dodge that bullet.  But the inner coach in me tells me I am doing too much...  Ugh... the joys of running versus staying cautious...
