Here's the schedule and actual week:
Monday 5 miles (Actual - 10.01 miles, yoga)
Tuesday 10 miles (Actual - 7.40 miles, weights)
Wednesday 5 miles (Actual - 10.01 miles)
Thursday 10 miles (Actual - 5.01 miles, yoga, weights)
Friday Rest (Actual - 5.01 miles)
Saturday 20 miles (Actual - yoga)
Sunday Rest (Actual - 13.07 miles) Brooksie Way Half Marathon(review tomorrow)
Total miles: 50.55 miles
So I decided to skip my third 20 miler and instead break up the miles so I ended up running an extra day this week for six days of running. I still got in the same miles but not all at once. Since I also have another 20 miler in two weeks and I've already done two 20 milers, I'm not worried about missing this. This allowed me to enjoy the half marathon this past weekend instead of running 7 before it. I'm sure I could have done it but I didn't see the purpose. I think 3 - 20 milers is plenty.
Next week is another cut back week to 35 miles and I've also got another half marathon on Sunday again. THAT one I plan to race. We'll see how it goes and I'm hoping for a confidence boost with a well run half marathon. I'd like to be under 1:40 pace and would love to PR but we shall see.
Hope your training is going well!
Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
