Alright, slow weeks. Not much to tell so let’s get it over with. The plan was simple: Week 32 would be a second consequent heavy week, although not as evenly divided as week 31. Week 33, on the contrary, would be a week of recovery. Tapering begins.
Alright, Business time! After the 24k in the woods of the Sunday before, I decided to turn week 31 into an intense one. And since I knew that Saturday & Sunday were going to be packed, all the work had to be done in the 5 remaining days.
Yep, I’m catching up. And I’ll be quick:
Week 29: No running. None. Nada. No running whatsoever! There! I said it. A short renovation sprint and tons of other stuff to take care of. And once that was taken care of, the Gentse Feesten started and I had company over. And before you know, a week has gone by.
Since the next big target isn’t until the end of august, I’m kind of in the middle of things at the moment. Additionally, I’m FINALLY in the last straight line to the finish of my renovation project and that takes a lot of time & energy as well. So not a lot of running this week.
Post-race week, so recovery time. But since the legs felt pretty good and, except a blister or two, no physical damage, I decided to dive straight back in. The idea was to loosen up the legs on the first day and then gradually build it up again from there onwards.
Race week, so super relax. And with the Red devils still in the FIFA World Cup, this week was filled with a lot of sitting and watching soccer games (and a lot less sleep than I’d hoped for). Anyway, Short report this week
Here we go again. After the heavy week and with two weeks to go until the Ardennes Megatrail, it’s time to start tapering. But I decided not to drop the amount of running too much. Partially because I can use the extra hours & miles, partially because I just love running too much 🙂
