This post is quite a bit late, but better late than never I guess! Things have been busy around the house so I didn’t get a chance to post my training for last week, but here we go.
This week I logged 38.57 miles in 5:28:25. Training felt pretty good all week. Sunday I didn’t have enough time with things going on, so I had to split up my long run. I did 7 miles to start the morning, and then late that evening I did another 3 miles. This was the first time I split up a long run like that. I don’t think that it was bad to do as I still got miles in, but I don’t feel like I got the best workout for stamina.
Splitting long runs is a well used tactic, especially in marathon training. I don’t think that it works for me in half marathon training. Like I said, it is great to get the miles in, but I need to also work on stamina for concurrent long runs. That said, I don’t think I will be splitting runs again if I can help it. But, when need be, it is always an option.
That is it for this week. Not much else was going on this week. Hope everyone can get out and run!
