Today begins my last big week of miles before entering taper.
That's my mileage for this week. Slightly insane especially after racing yesterday, but I am up for the challenge.
Here is a peak at my workouts for the week:
Monday - 3 miles easy AM, Yoga PM
Tuesday - Total Body Class AM, Yassos 10x800m@ 3:25 w/ 3:25 recovery, 9 miles total PM
Wednesday - 3 miles easy AM
Thursday - 3 mi E, 2x (4mi@ MP + 1mi @T), 2 mi E; 15 miles total PM
Friday - Easy spinning AM
Saturday - 22 miles easy AM
Sunday - 2 miles easy AM
And I really hope that this mornings run was the last morning I have to wear full winter gear and put on all my layers. It was 30F and there was frost every where and although it was beautiful in the morning light, I am ready for shorts and a t-shirt.
The race went well yesterday (race report coming soon, I promise!). It was the perfect weather and the perfect race. I will say that I PR'd big time! Today, I am a little stiff today but actually not as bad as I thought I was going to be. Yoga was exactly what I needed to loosen up my legs.
I think the key to this week of crazy mileage will be getting to bed early. And eating lots of food and maybe some strong coffee!
Bring on the miles!
