My highest volume training week (55 miles!!) is over, and it went amazingly well! I have SO much more confidence leading up to this marathon than I have for any other. I also can't believe I'll be tapering in just 2 weeks.
How the week shaped up:
Monday - 20 minute yoga podcast + abs
Tuesday - 6.5 miles recovery (9:12 min/mile)
Wednesday - 12.3 miles (8:38 min/mile)
Thursday - 20 minute yoga podcast
Friday - 12 miles w/ 7 LT (5 @ 8:15 min/mile; 7 @ 7:35 min/mile)
Saturday - 5 miles recovery (9:17 min/mile)
Sunday - 20 miles (8:46 min/mile)
Total: 55.8 miles
I've noticed my recovery runs have been getting slower, but my long runs and LT workouts are feeling a LOT better, and I'm able to keep a better pace than I used to. I think I used to push too hard in recovery runs, which kind of defeats the whole purpose!
And now I'm off to bed...800s in the morning!
