RunningBlog: Week 21

Week 21
Taper Madness has ensued. My low-carb diet has totally gone off the rails this week, I’m sorry to say. Training was good though. Sunday I went for a night run after our cheese class, and I managed 8.5K before the CHEESE BABY in my belly demanded that I stop. Monday I went to Spudds and had a particularly hard workout. Tuesday I went for a lunchtime run with some work buddies. Wednesday was Spudds again, but thankfully easier this time. Today I went for a solo run at lunchtime, pushing the pace a bit. Not bad for taper week 2 of 4!

May 22: 8.56km
May 24: 6.11km
May 27: 6.31km
Total this week: 20.98km (13mi)
Total in 2011: 540.25km (337.65mi)

To meet my goal of running 1100km in 2011, I should be at 444km. Holy crap, I’ve got nearly 100km of cushion!

The rest of the winter running season is falling into place. On August 7 I’ll be running the Bay Run (7K) with the Snook and three buddies from work. The following weekend the Snook and I will be running the City 2 Surf (14K) as part of the DailyMile Sydney team. My big goal race for the 2nd half of the year will be the Blackmores Half Marathon on September 18.
