|4th in State (again!)|
This will be my highest mileage training week of this training cycle. Honestly, I'm ready to get it over with.
My left knee hurt a bit on yesterday's 4 miler. But, I thoroughly enjoyed last Saturday's afternoon (post basketball game) 8 miler. There are so many ups and downs during a training cycle. I need the bad to truly appreciate the good.
Plan for the Week
Monday: 4 miles
Thursday: 8 miles
Friday: 10 miles/ Yoga PM
Saturday: 10 miles
I don't prefer doing my Metabolic Effect weight circuits/supersets two days in a row. And, I will probably miss the third weekly weights workout for the first time in 5 months. I can't imagine lifting Thursday morning then running 8 miles (I've snuck the weights in before 5 and 6 miles, but 8?!?). Then I thought about doing the weights Friday night, sandwiched between two 10 mile days. Dude, give me a break. I'll let the miles take priority for this week.
I'm trying to replicate what it will feel like in three weeks, running 3 half marathons in 3 days. I know, there's a big difference between 28 miles in 3 days vs. 39.3 miles in 3 days, but this will be as close as I get.
Step by step, one day at a time. I can see the finish line(s).
