Peak week continues!

Thanks for the encouragement folks!

I would normally be cursing my stomach at this hour on a Saturday morning, but we're getting hit with a massive storm this weekend, so I'm saving the long run for tomorrow. Homie does not run 20 miles in the pouring rain---I am too prone to chaffing for that crap. (However, it hasn't rained at all since I woke up, which makes me think the weather man lied to me. Damn you Mike Woods and your flawed 5-day forecast!)

Otherwise, peak week is going, um, ok. On Tuesday morning I set the wrong alarm and woke up 30 minutes late. So I had to cut down my 7 mile tempo run to 5. Wednesday's easy 5 miler went as planned. But Thursday I pushed the 85-minute hill workout to the evening, which just messed me up (my internal clock was all over the place).

And brings us to today, where I am awaiting a rain out to justify me skipping the run this morning. So there's not much to report on peak week other than a close-to-par performance. I'm hoping that tomorrow's run will help change that.

Is it raining down there? It's gray out but no rain here . . .

Good luck with your peak week.
A lot of clouds here in NJ, and some drizzle.

I hope you are out there today. If it's any consolation, I wanted to stop yesterday riding after 4 miles..I couldn't seem to get my rhythm going. But, thinking that I would do 'a few more miles' ended up doing almost 50. So...go,go,go

Chafing is definitely not so bueno. Hope it clears up for you!

In my opinion, if the peak week was going any better than "ok," you're not peaking!

Damn those weathermen!!

I'm thinking the weatherman lied to you! Hope you got to do your 20 yesterday morning...even though it probably was just as disgusting as the day before.
