This is the last big week of my marathon training and then its on to the taper. My schedule calls for a 45 mile week:
I ran 5.5 with J this morning so I'm well on my way. S is out of town on Saturday so we'll run the 22 on Sunday. My quads are sore from my half-marathon which is somewhat surprising to me. I guess its been a while since I've run that hard over that distance. I'll see how I feel and may take another rest day on Saturday and skip the 3. But I really want to hit that 45 mile mark. I've been above 30 since February and I've had two weeks above 40 so far this year. Last year I only had two weeks above 35 and eight weeks above 30. So I'm happy with my progress.
