2 WU 6K cross country race 2+ CD

Went out to a low key CC race with the GRC and Pacers guys as a warm up for clubs in two weeks. I forgot how different cross country is from track and road running. I had not even worn a pair of spikes in over a decade. It was hilly, muddy, etc--straight up XC. Myback hurt and my stride was all out of wack. My stomach really hurt too because I've eaten like shit and drank a lot of alcohol these last few days.  I sat around and drank beers with the rest of the guys before going back home.  I need to clean up my diet and get back in routine. I think I ran over 20 min. for the 6K and it clearly wasn't at my best because of the way I felt. Great tune up though.

AM: 7 easy + standard core routine, back machine

PM: 5 easy

Man I feel heavy.  I've eaten lik $hit and drank a boat load of alcohol over the past few days. It's no wonder I felt like ass yesterday.  I have a little less than two weeks until clubs. I need to eat well and train well again until then.  Last week was racing and peaking/recovering and I barely ran-only 44 miles or so. it worked to peak for my race, but I feel sluggish and fat now.

AM:  2 WU (800,800,1600,800,800) 2 CD  (2:35, 2:27, 4:59, 2:23, 2:21)

PM: rest

Short workout this morning.  After going over it I decided not to run another 5K this weekend since I've been racing a lot and am pretty much raced out. I'm happy with my 32:23/15:42 this fall.  I don't want to get greedy and hurt myself trying to over race.  The short workout felt pretty easy today so I am in great shape. Now I just need to train decently and hold my peak through clubs.

Speaking of Clubs, it's supposed to be a really big race. I'm hoping it's not a clusterfu%k of people falling and getting spiked when the course bottlenecks. The cool part is guys like Matt Tegenkamp, Chris Solinksy, and Tyler Pennel are running the race. Check out the entries here
