First, a quick review of last week (week 10):
So I'm now 1/3 of the way through this training cycle, which feels good. So far I'm 100% as far as training runs go. I've missed a couple of the Sunday walks, but I've still been active enough in those cases to make up for it. So far, so good.
But, that said, I think that week 10 was the first week that actually felt like marathon training.
Two runs from last week really stand out. The 6mi pace run and the 10mi long run were both very challenging.
The temps continued to be in the low to mid 80's for my runs last week. I'm looking forward to these runs getting easier once it cools down in a couple of months.
Now on to this week - Week 11.
This week I get a bit of a mid-week break. The Wednesday run this week is an easy run instead of a pace run. That's a good thing, because I'll need the extra rest to get ready for the 11mi run scheduled for Saturday. The 10mi run last week was tough. Adding another mile to that run this week will be a serious challenge.
