Thanks everyone for checking and reading up on my race report. Last week was a great week, but it's time to put the half mary behind me and focus on the training. The marathon day is fast approaching, only 27 days left. Here's a recap of the week. I didn't meet the mileage goal of 50 because I took days off to prepare for the race.
Weekly mileage: 38 miles (61K)
Year to date: 1,266 miles (2,036K)
This week marks the final week of big mileage before the taper begins. I have a 20 miler planned on the weekend and I may push it a few extra miles and I'm even contemplating pushing the pace up in the final 5 miles.
The best run of the week will be the Army 10 miler on Sunday morning. It's the day after my last long run so it'll be a recovery run with R. We'll do it for fun, enjoy a big race with 26,000 other runners and get a big honking medal at the end. Oh yeah, the day after that is turkey day.
Monday: 4 miles recovery
Tuesday: 5 miles with 6x100
Wednesday: 10 miles with 4x1200 (this will be a fun workout)
Saturday: 20 miles (start slow, push the pace up)
Sunday: 10 mile race at recovery
