Another week down, just a few more to go. I feel like last week was all about just getting it done.
Work was more demanding than normal so runs were all about business. It feels a bit boring to talk about my running week as all the runs were done in my neighborhood to save time but I committed to documenting this training cycle so here it is.
Monday: Full rest day. I hadn’t taken a rest day in awhile so I took full advantage of the extra time to get more work done.
Tuesday: 4 mile run around the reservoir. It was so windy that I had a hard time running in a straight line.
Wednesday: Mid-week longish run of 7 miles
Thursday: 6 morning miles before a long day at work, tried to keep it light and easy.
Friday: Double run day! I really love double run days. 4 miles in the morning and 4 miles in the evening.
Saturday: It was grey and rainy in the morning and I loved it. I think running in the rain is very calming, 5.25 miles was a great way to start the day
Sunday: 20 miles!!! It felt fine, but was a lot flatter than I would have liked. I didn’t want to drive to a trail head so I kept it to the local trails. Next weekend I really need to find more elevation for my long run.
Running: 51 miles
Cross Training: None…just the way it worked out this week.
3 more peak weeks until taper!
