Another running week comes to an end today. In terms of running, it was a tough - but good - week. It started with a Monday long run (I know...who does their long runs on Monday? Um, me) of 15 miles. Took me awhile to get into my groove...about half the run, to be exact. I topped it off with a 15-minute ice bath afterward. The other two key runs this week included a hilly 8-miler (7:44 pace) on Wednesday, and an 8-miler (with the middle 4 at tempo pace; ~7:10/mi avg.) this morning. The gaps were filled in with three easy recovery runs.
Here be the numbers:
This is my highest weekly mileage in many years (since 1984, I think). It also caps my highest monthly mileage ever (barely) at 162.7 miles. The weekly mileage will continue going up (body willing) until it hits 60 in a few weeks as I continue preparing for the marathon in May.
Have a great week!
