It is another week closer to GCM, and I am feeling like I am in a really solid place for approximately 8 weeks out. I have been running my splits as I am supposed to, and really hammering on the miles. Charlie keeps telling me that the fact that I added one more run per week (I am at 5 + one day of xt) is going to be a game changer for me.
So let's look at the week.
Monday: 8.8 miles. 8 miles on the treadmill, progressive convo pace, and then 8x0.10 on the indoor track 1 on, 1 off. CORE
Tuesday: 7 miles, treadmill, 8:26 average
Wednesday: 50 minutes elliptical, CORE
Thursday: 7.4 miles. Speedwork on the track.
Friday: 7.5 miles, 8:33 pace easy... outdoors, CORE
Saturday: 14 miles with 3x2 miles at marathon pace
Heavy mileage for half training, right? I am LOVING it. It is making me feel pretty great.
High level stats:
5 days running
3 days core
44.7 miles run
1 xt session
Another successful week!
