This week was one for the personal record books (I know, *yawn*). I ended up with my longest run ever and my highest weekly mileage ever. The week was capped with a group 8-miler during which I felt very strong, with surprisingly springy legs. If all goes according to plan, next week will be my first 50+ mileage week ever. Next week will end with a race I'm training through (Mercer Island Half Marathon). I may run a solo half marathon the day before, so I can simulate "marathon fatigue" during the race.
Here's how this week shaped up:
The body is holding up very well. I felt a little leg fatigue (and some hip flexor soreness) for a day or two after Monday's 18-miler, but was fine after that.
All systems go! Knock on wood!
Have a great week, everyone!
