Taking a Brrreak (11/5/17 to 11/11/17 Training Log)

With the arrival of consistent sub-freezing temperatures and the first snow flurries of the season, this week posed a particular set of challenges. Despite my zeal for returning to training, the fact that I’m still not a full month out from my last marathon was readily apparent this week as the recurrent tendinitis in my right adductor flared back.

The goal I set during last week’s training log— to maintain a weekly mileage of 30– now seems overly ambitious.

I pared down to just 15 miles this week and devoted more time to stretching and core work. I plan to stay at this mileage for the remainder of the month and then consider slowly increasing my load.
