Looks like it ended up being a good time for a recovery week. Between the humidity, dust storm, and home repairs that popped up, it would have been rough to get in 40+ miles. I have to get back on track though starting this morning.

Basically impossible to wear a shirt while running this time of year.

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread
Finished last week with 12 miles for the week. A bit less than I was hoping. I get extreme adductor soreness from squats, so I have to reevaluate if they're worth doing.

Switched to a two-day 5/3/1 program from Jim Wendler. Goes like this:

Week 1:

Monday: Squats, lunges (with push ups and pull ups circuit), stiff-legged deadlifts

Thursday: Bench press, OHP, bent over rows

Week 2:

Monday: Deadlifts, lightweight box squats (with push ups and pull ups circuit), good mornings

Thursday: OHP, bench press, bent over rows

Got 2 miles in yesterday. Should hit 16 this week if soreness doesn't get me from the deadlifts today.

No judgement is passed in my area. I may judge you more if you are wearing a shirt. Planning on 7 today before lunch. My motivation on a scale from 0-10 is pretty much 0.5, but I'm still pushing through. Goal is to keep steady at 30 MPW with speed work.

Yep. It makes no sense to wear one in the early morning hours. No shirt = cooler and no chaffing.

Yep. The humidity is getting bad in the Midwest too, nothing like the South though. I laugh when people complain about the humidity in Kansas.

I've dealing with some Achilles tendinitis, particularly in my left heal. I'm going to avoid hills for a while and see if that helps.

Got my pair of Brooks Divide 1s in the mail today. Can’t wait to take them out to the trails this weekend.

Let me know how you like them. I like my Salomon speedcross but I need another pair with less grip for some easier trails. Those Salomon trail shoes are like friggin cleats.

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread
Speedcross are overkill for prob 90% of trails in Louisiana (although have never run Alexandria area trails). Better and lighter trail shoes are available. I live in CenTex and road shoes suitable for most trails given recent dryness or speedier trail shoes.

Thursdays are my high intensity run days in COVID era given don't have a CrossFit home now. Have a running "coach" and did 2.2 on gravel trails at 8:23 pace for warm-up followed by 3rd Thursday track work-out since local track has opened up (did CrossFit drop-in that was all barbell for an hour at 12:15 in no climate control and was still dehydrated):

12 laps, max effort at <6 min / mile pace on straights with 50% jog cooldown on turns. Was fuggin' hot, but feel 5K / 10K pace getting better weekly and more motivated to run with less MetCon / Oly incorporated in daily life

I took them out for the first time for a 4.8 mile loop. They fit snugly. When laced all the way up, I don’t have any heel slip. The toe box is roomy—not as much as my Ghosts, but more than the Nike Legend Reacts that fill out my rotation. No hot spots.

The trail is mainly hard packed dirt with a few sections of gravel and rocks, with some wooden bridges mixed in. The bridges looked slick, but the Divide handled well. There was a lot of mud, and I never lost traction. It’s not a waterproof shoe, and I got some wet socks from running through a low spot on the trail. I didn’t notice any discomfort from the rock plate, as some reviewers had mentioned; I may have not run long enough to experience that though.

All in all, I think the Divide is as advertised after one short run. I’ll try to take it out again on Sunday for two loops, depending on weather and how the weekend goes.

I learned another lesson today. When running on trails, I need to wear bug spray. I also need to google what to do if hogs charge you, because I startled a pair and had an “oh shit” moment.

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread
I appreciate the feedback on the brooks divide. I may just get a pair of cascadia as they can be had for about half the price. I feel the Salomons are better suited for obstacle races. I plan to grab a new pair before I head up to Washington st next week. Eager to see what kinda running trails their big three national parks have to offer. I am looking forward to the scenery for sure.

Pretty well as long as I‘m not a dumbass

But I am a dumbass, so I have a disaster area run once a week, or once every couple of weeks. Have hit all of my mileage goals, though. Relaxed a good bit on target paces

Just googled Seattle weather and got jealous. Presumably the national park weather will be similar? Have had a, not fully serious, desire to run the wonderland trail for a while

That sounds pretty awesome. Is this at mt Rainier? That's where we are heading as soon as we land. I'm not spending any time in Seattle other than flying in. Not even getting a postcard from CHAZ

Yeah, it’s in Rainier National Park

Like Ranier’s Tour du Mont Blanc, Annapurna circuit, etc.
