Monster Week

I ran 69.3 miles this week! I think that has to be my all-time high weekly mileage. My monthly total was 223 miles which is also an all-time high and that was in only 28 days. So far I've been able to up my mileage while continuing to be injury-free.

Here's how the week added up:

Monday - 10 miles in 1:59:24, this was an interval session and I tried something different. I ran 16 200s at an 8:00 pace. The rest of the 10 miles was a warm-up, recovery between the intervals (walk at a brisk pace for 1:30) and finished up with slow running.

Tuesday - 5 miles in 58:40

Wednesday - 10 miles in 1:57:31

Thursday - 5 miles in 59:21

Friday - 4 miles on a sucky hotel treadmill, alternated power walking up an incline with slow running with no incline.

Saturday - 10.13 miles in 2:01:07

Sunday - 25.17 miles in 5:00:00

This week I plan to pull back about 15% before one last monster week and then taper time for my 50 miler!
