Another weekly catchup post on mileage.
I ran the following this past week.
Tuesday: 4 miles (at, ugh, 5:40 a.m.!)
Wednesday: 5 miles (5:40 a.m.)
Thursday: 8 miles with 4x1000 (5:36 a.m.)
Friday: 3.5 miles (7:13 a.m.)
Saturday: 4.5 miles (10:10 a.m.)
Sunday: 7.5 miles (10K race plus 2.2K warmup)
Weekly mileage: 32.5 miles (52K)
Year to date: 800 miles (1287.5K)
In the next week, I want to ramp up to 40 miles, then keep on building miles to slowly make my way back up to 50 miles by mid-June. This should have me primed to hit the Pfitzinger 70 mile program on June 22. A big gulp....
I ran a 10 miler this morning in DC, happy because I started it at around 8 minute miles and worked down to an average pace of 7:48. I'm really trying to test myself by running a little faster on non-recovery days if my marathon pace is going to have to be in the 7:15 range.
