7/21-7/27: 108 Miles/Week

This was my first serious week of the marathon training period.  I've begun doubling nearly every day(the target is 7 days a week).  It's not easy, but I'm getting into that rhythm and getting used to it.  Monday I was just plain tired, but after that I felt good.  I feel my fitness progressing now as my long runs will get faster.  This coming weekend I have a 24 mile long run.  I also will be running the marathon distance in training during this cycle, something I have not done in the past.  My total mileage per week during this training will be 110-120, no higher.  I feel good, and strong.

Monday 7/21: 6 miles + Strength Training

  1. Nice week. Those doubles will start to feel normal after a while. You'll look forward to them... maybe!
