This week, I finally feel like I am getting back in my groove. Last week was good, this week (so far) has been better. Actually, the last 3 weeks have been pretty consistent. The last week of December, I ran 19.8 miles. Last week, I ran 18.9 miles, and it was better quality than the week before. This week I’m at 15 miles so far. Tomorrow is a rest day, then I’ll go easy 3-5 miles Friday and 10 miles on Saturday.
Here’s what I’ve done this week …
Monday – easy 5 miles – 8:33/mile
Tuesday – 5 miles, with middle 3 miles tempo. I averaged 7:28/mile for the tempo.
Wednesday – 5 miles at a steady pace – 8″-7/miles
So if all goes according to plan, I’ll hit 28 or 30 miles this week.
