A Cold and Snowy Easter

The weather this week has changed dramatically in Ohio. Tuesday it was 75 degrees then the following day the high was 35. The rest of the week was just as cold and on Easter day we had snow on the ground. It felt like it should of been Christmas day. Lucky for me I did not put my winter stuff away. This week I backed off on the training and ran a total of 59 miles. The first part of the week my runs were very slow because my legs were tired for some reason. I am guessing that the week before had something to do with that. I decided not to do an AT run and ran all my miles slow. I kept my heart rate between 135 to 150. I use a polar heart monitor quite often when I feel fatigued. It helps me to slow down so I do not overtrain. The second half of the week I started to feel better. If I feel tired for more then 3 days I focus on my diet. I get more carbohydrates and water into my body. There are times when I go to an all you can eat pasta bar and chow down to get the job done. Next week I will start increasing my mileage and will build upon that. My goal is to reach 70 miles in 2 weeks. Until next time, have a Great Run.
