04/01 - 04/07

The American River 50 was Saturday and, as such, I had a low key week otherwise (with a number of days off). Here's the breakdown:

Monday (Apr. 1): off
Tuesday (Apr. 2): AM 10 miles, 6 in 37:18 (6:12/mile), around the Arb (road). Fran and I planned to run some miles at a quicker pace this morning but, since neither of us felt quite right, the pace stayed brisk albeit not fast. It was a very cold morning (hopefully the last of them!).
Wednesday (Apr. 3): AM 8+ miles, :57, 6:53/mile, out-and-back on Cap City Trail. Easy miles.
Thursday (Apr. 4): off. A day of travel out to California.
Friday (Apr. 5): AM 6 miles, :43, 7:11/mile, American River bike path, Sacramento, CA. Nice views on a cool morning just outside of downtown Sacramento. Excited for tomorrow!
Saturday (Apr. 6): AM/PM American River 50 mile, 2nd place, 6:20:58, 7:37/mile. There's a lot to be said about this one, and it can be found in my Race Report: American River 50.
Sunday (April 7): off. My legs and body feel pretty alright, although I was exceedingly tired by the time I made it back to Madison in the afternoon (at which time I crashed for 4 hours before dinner).

Weekly Totals: 74+ miles, 9hrs:10. Recovery from the race seems to be going well, so I should be able to get back to higher intensity training mode very soon.
