This week is the highest volume week going into the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon coming up on March 17th. It was a good week of training, but the next few weeks will be a challenge for me to take it a bit easier on the mileage. Here is how it went.
This week I ran a total of 38.49 miles in 6:10:51. This included the longest long run of this training cycle of 14 miles today. The weather turned bad this week so all my runs ended up being done on the treadmill (besides I still want to hit it with as much abuse and miles as I can to make sure the fix still works). I prefer to run outside if I can of course, but running is better than no running.
Back to the the long run today, I felt pretty good. According to my watch I set a new 10K and new half marathon PR during it, so I must have been doing alright. I did hit the half marathon under my two hour goal time so I hope that translates over to actual race day. You just never know how things will turn out on the day. Usually you run a little faster, but anything can happen!
That is pretty much it for this week. I spent some time doing outside work in the yard this week a lot, so not a whole lot of extra things going on. Hopefully you get a chance to get out and run this week!
