My legs are really tired! I guess I didn’t realize how much I was doing last week. I took 1 day completely off, and one day only skied (Vakava on Thursday). My mileage was at 50 for the week for the 5 days I ran, and I added in another easy ski (just 20 minutes) as a second workout one of the days. I never know how to “count” my ski time, so I typically don’t… and then I wonder why my legs feel like this after just a 50 mile week. Anyone have any good ideas? Skiers just count hours, but I feel like that isn’t adequate since marathon training is largely about putting a lot of miles on your legs.
Anyway, that volume is pretty high for my 2nd week back. It’s especially high considering I’m running a 1/2 marathon this weekend. Hope my legs will turn around by Saturday!
