3x3 Miles Success
23.6 mile long run in 2:45:00 @ 7:00 pace
1 Lift Session
This wraps up a five-week streak of 80+ mile weeks for me. Last week I wasn't really feeling the full effects of marathon training on my body, but this week was definitely different. My left calf and achilles are tight, and, albeit minor, I want to monitor it appropriately so that it does not lead to anything more serious. I got a massage with Adrienne on Friday and had Garrett scrape me on Saturday...and on today's run, I didn't feel tight any more.
All my workouts were completed within the target pace ranges that Terry had suggested, so I'm really happy about where things are progressing. My "time-on-the-feet" long run was a little bit quicker than Terry had outlined, but I still completed 2 hours and 45 minutes on my feet, almost enough to get 24 miles. I didn't care enough to run the extra two minutes to get a full 24 miles. I figured the faster pace outweighed the need to round out to an even number.
Looking forward to a half marathon race next weekend in Columbia, SC with Laurie before one final week of hardcore training. Cal International Marathon is just five weeks away, and I feel ready!
