What the WHAT!?
There is no reason I should be running that much!
I've enjoyed all the runs... a half marathon trail race, a 20 mile trail race, a run on the AT with a friend, and a couple of neighborhood runs... I loved them all. But now it's time to rest.
After my race on Saturday, I ate a lot of food and I took it easy. I rested on Sunday and Monday. I was going to rest on Tuesday, but I really felt like running. Plus we are getting a snowstorm today (Wednesday) so I figured it would make more sense to run on Tuesday and rest on Wednesday.
I felt surprisingly good on my Tuesday run. For as sore and creaky as I felt the last half of the Naked Bavarian, I felt awesome on Tuesday. I guess two days off and a lot of eating served me well.
My plan is to run on Thursday and maybe on Friday. That will bring me to 38 miles for the week, which is plenty!
Next week I will try to keep it around 30-35 miles as well.
I don't want this old body to break down on me.
What's the most amount of miles you have run in a week or so?
When is the last time you purposefully had a down week?
