Week 8 Rundown

Goals for the week!

Total Mileage 70.
Monday: Easy.
Tuesday: Track.
Wednesday and Friday: Easy miles @ 7:40 or slower, 6 x 30 sec strides on Friday.
Thursday: 8 miles ( 4 @ 6:30, 3 @ 6:20, 1 @ 6:10)
12 miles @ 7:10
15 miles @ 7:30

How it played out:

70 miles, 6 days running, one double.

Possibly my best week of training ever, all the workouts went well and I felt genuinely good for everything. It's a fine line and my body is definitely strong but I need to be careful and stop neglecting the strengthening PT type stuff as it would be really easy to get an imbalance and end up pushing it too far towards injury again. This was really evident at my massage Friday as there was some serious tightness in my left hip, psoas, hip flexor, lower back. Ouch! Good thing it is taper time!
