The Week of 02/24/2014: National Rest Week

In response to how good the rest at the end of last week felt and the just plain ridiculous amount of snow that we have been getting, I declared this week a "National week of rest."  In doing so I am focused on getting my nightly routine (& thus my nightly sleep quantities) back on track, as well as letting my feet get a reprieve from the pounding.

Next week will be a moderate week ending in Saturday's 100% Irish for a day 10 miler.  I am not where I hoped to be speed wise, but I have no doubt that I can cover the distance.

Also, this week I decided not to do the 2014 Blaine Triathlon.  The driving reason is that with all the focus on running events this year, I will not be properly conditioned for the swim or bike legs.  I'm not great at triathlon to begin with, and it's not worth the cost of the entry fees or the wetsuit rental to suck at something even worse than I normally do.
