Single digit weeks remaining! I can’t believe how quickly race day is approaching. Especially since I now have two races on my calendar instead of just one.
Distance: 6.0 with 6 strides
For my long run I decided to split the distance between last week’s 17 miler and next week’s 20 miler, which put me at 18.5 this week. I was hoping that this run would be as good as last week’s, but this week had higher temperatures and higher humidity. I got through the distance without any issues, but I definitely wasn’t feel strong at the end like I was last week.
Total: 52.11 miles
This was my highest week of mileage ever, which is pretty exciting! Although this coming week will be the real test with 55 miles on the schedule. My top priority is getting through my weekly mileage, so I am not sure if I will be adding any speed work this week. I’d like to get in a few miles at half marathon pace early in the week, but I also want to make sure my legs are some what fresh for my 20 miler. I might have to hold off this week.
