My 6 miles easy this morning capped of the biggest week of the training cycle. And what a week it was:
M: 6 miles easy (I threw in some hills in Bonelli)
W: 10 miles with 10 x 800m (400 jogs)
H: 6 miles easy
S: 22 miles (long run)
S: 6 miles easy
Total mileage for the week was 50. 50 is that number I strive to hit. I've gotten to 50 a few times before and either on the way there or soon there after I end up hurt. This time around I am happy to report that all systems are go. From here on into the marathon things are on a downward sloping trend; less miles per week, less intensity, shorter long runs. Taper time!!
