Here I am at the peak of marathon training. This is how I roll. Here is the kind of week I put in at the peak of marathon training:
Monday AM: 3 miles at 8:16 pace
Tuesday AM: 21 miles stationary bike (1 hour)
Friday AM: 40 minutes stationary bike + 2 miles treadmill at 8:22 pace
Saturday AM: 18 miles (12 easy + 6 at 7:30 pace)
Sunday AM: 2.6 miles
Total: 25.6 miles(almost a marathon!)
Yeah. That’s about what Ryan Hall did this week, I think. The Saturday run was a solid 18 miler, but it’s pretty sad that I couldn’t put together enough miles in the 6 other days of the week to even equal a marathon. I’m pretty mentailly drained right now. I’m ready for the race to be over so I can get up in the morning and run (or not run) however many miles I feel like at whatever pace I feel like without a schedule to follow.
5 weeks to go. I’ll try to be better this week.
