General Reflections: I was in Los Angeles for half of this week. I set a new weekly mileage record, topping 100 miles for the first time, and a new weekly elevation gain PR.
- Monday: 4 easy miles | 4.5 easy miles
- Tuesday: 17.8 trail + road miles
- Wednesday: 1 easy mile | 18 trail + road miles
- Thursday: 7.6 easy miles
- Friday: 10.1 mile workout | 5 easy miles
- Saturday: 20.3 miles
- Sunday: 13.2 miles
Weekly Totals: 101.8 miles. 5,883 ft of elevation gain
Favorite Workout(s): My Wednesday long run
On Wednesday I took a train to Hollywood, and did a trail run up and around Griffith park (Strava info). The views were phenomenal and fortunately it was a more frequently trafficked trail system so I didn’t get really lost (like I did the previous day).
Biggest Issues: On Tuesday’s trail run I got dangerously lost.
Lessons learned: Bringing an emergency little flask of water (I have a 7oz one I used) on runs that may be longer than planned is a good safety precaution to take.
Next Week: Lower the mileage and get back to more speed work
