Superior training week eight recap

Week eight was a rest week. Only four runs, none longer than 7.5 miles. I hope the small numbers this week don't come back to haunt me as I ramp up again.

  • 3 hours, 58 minutes

  • 21.5 miles

  • 2,260 ft D+

I didn't sleep well this week and despite some good meals got into a poor mood by Friday. Hitting the trail both days this weekend lifted my spirits a lot. Unlike Boulder and Denver, Fort Collins got very little precipitation from Friday's snowstorm, so the trails were dry as usual. Today I ran to the summit of Arthur's Rock, which I usually pass by, during the only overcast hours of the day.

Next week I'm doing my first uphill workout. My body felt good on the climb today and I'm looking forward to pushing it more on Tuesday.
