Monday - Gym - Bench, Press, 30 min stationary bike - legs feeling a little dead so skipped the planned squats.
Tuesday - 45 min stairs
Wednesday - 45 min stairs
Thursday - 24 miles, NB 110
Friday - 45 min stairs
Saturday - zero - My wife had to be out the door by 6:00 am, so that eliminated a morning run. Then the rest of the day was spent with the kids.
Sunday - 20 miles, NB 101 - didn't make it to the trial and just did this on the bike trail around the community. The trail is smooth so you can just veg out and grind but there is some nice elevation change, esp. for this part of the country.
Total - 44 miles and 2.25 hour stairs
It was nice to log two 20+ mile runs in the same week but those were my only runs... I guess stair climbing counts as a running like activity and gets the heart rate way up there but the cadence is different, the tempo is different, the stride, well you see what I am saying. However, I have fallen in love with grinding vertical and I think that has improved my running. It will be easier to get out for some random night runs as the weather warms and the days get longer, so some doubles should start popping up again.
