Base Building Phase

The main focus for TB 2/5 is building a base while listening to my body and taking care of it.  I also began recording heart rate data to see if there is any improvement over this period.  For the most part I hit my weekly mileage goals and felt comfortable with the increased mileage.  I also incorporated progression runs during some of my longer workouts and completed a few tempo workouts to get rid of the cobwebs.  There were two weekends with back-to-back long runs and those went well.  I’ll be doing more of these into TB 3/5 which will allow me an opportunity to begin mimicking race day fatigue, and more importantly doing so while properly recovering.
