My running weeks start on Monday and end on Sunday. But if I were to count from last Sunday to today (Saturday), I would total (thanks, in large part, to last Sunday) 62.5 miles. That's the most I've ever run in a 7-day stretch. Thankfully, I don't feel any injuries coming on, and aside from a little fatigue during the week, my legs seem to be holding up. I have noticed my appetite increasing a significant amount.
But back to my normal Monday through Sunday schedule, here's how this week ended up:
Avg. HR: 125
Long: 12 mi
Monday's run will be 22 miles. That'll be my last 20+ mile run in this training cycle, before I start my taper the following week. I've really enjoyed training for this marathon, but I'm honestly looking forward to the taper. I may not be saying that the week before the marathon, when I'm bouncing off the walls and feeling all sorts of phantom aches and pains, but right now I'm enduring a little overall fatigue that lets me know I'm right up to the edge of my current limits. With all that said, I can't wait to run this marathon! 4 weeks to go!
