Not many weeks left now!
Monday: 1/2 marathon recovery
Tuesday: 6 mile run
Wednesday: Rest day
Thursday: 16 mile run
Saturday: rest -> dad was in town so I spent the whole day with him
Sunday: 4 mile run -> again, dinner with dad so I ran, didn’t go to yoga
Total miles: 26
Observations: What this week of training doesn’t reflect is the fact that I ran 37.1 miles in 5 days (Sunday to Thursday). I was VERY proud of myself when I finished my 16 mile run Thursday. I had calculated the 5 day mileage total in my head. My legs felt like jello during my 6 and 16 mile efforts but I managed to hang in with both and I ran a negative split in the final mile of my 16 miler. Hello runners high! Seriously was swelling with pride. Runners run! The mile total for 7 days was lower than I had planned but hitting 37 miles in 5 days is a huge accomplishment and injury free! Who says a running week needs to be Monday through Sunday? I love to buck tradition.
That’s about it! Only two more really long runs left (18 and the dreaded 20) and I’ve already gone to yoga once this week! Yesssssssssss.
