Last week was a very productive running week.
I ended with week with just under 33 miles which was exactly my plan. My mountain run went well. It was cold and overcast, but fortunately didn’t rain while I was running. I stuck with just 8 miles as I had a lot to do Sunday and didn’t want to take too much time out running. Sad really.
Now on to another week. I am tempted to increase my mileage, but don’t know that I will. I’ll see how I feel.
I am curious how my half marathon will go in 3 weeks. I’m stronger then I’ve ever been thanks to the weekly mountain runs. I haven’t been doing specific speed workouts, but my speed is increasing quite a bit. My last (and only) half marathon was completed in 1:44, so that is a big goal to beat. I did get close to that time at my marathon during the first half of the race, but I’ve never gone faster then that – ever. I think I’ll make my goal 1:40 and see how it goes from there.
Special congrats to those who ran races this last weekend. I need to find me a 5K to run sometime. It has been a long time since I’ve raced and racing always keeps me motivated.
Have an awesome week.
