So I’ll use the excuse of having this week be a “tempo-based” week and focused more on short distances but pushing the pace on each run. But it starts a short list of reasons why this week’s mileage was reflective on someone who is going from “Couch to 5K” compared to trying to qualify for Boston Marathon 2019. I didn’t have any long run at all.
I want to use one of the following:
- Football camp opened up this weekend at the high school I coach at.
- Finals for summer session of PT school is this weekend.
- Work(ed), two late nights early in the week…
With only hitting 18 miles this week, that should have been my long run along with multiple 10 mile days. If there’s anything to takeaway from this week is that I felt good running faster doubles (sub 7:00/mile and as fast as 6:20/mile) and used it as a “recovery” week. That being said the race in Erie is only a few short weeks away and I know I need to be strong with a few weeks to go and not having a traditional training method by any stretch of the imagination.
