This was a tough week for me. I hit a new all time high for weekly mileage.
Mon: 8 Easy
Tue: 16 Progression
Wed: 18 Steady
Thu: 16 Steady
Fri: 16 Easy
Sat: 13 Steady
Sun: 13 Steady
I am not a fan of large variations in weekly mileage. My plan calls for an average of 80 mpw. The range is 77 for a low week (cutback) to 85 (peak week).
But on Monday I leave for LA (4 days for work) followed by a trip to Hershey (5 days with family). My schedule this week and the week I am away was supposed to be:
8,8,16,8,8,13,18 (79) and 8,8,16,8,8,13,16 (77) total (156)
Because I will be away I changed the schedule to:
8,16,18,16,16,13,13 (100) and 8,8,8,8,8,8,8 (56) total (156)
I figure no matter how busy in LA or Hershey I can find time to run an hour a day. I plan to take advantage of the drastic shift in weekly mileage to run more quality while away.
During this training phase I do 1 and if I feel good 2 tempo workouts a week. All other workouts are endurance oriented.
While away I will try to get in as many as 3 quality workouts (these are basically aerobic during this phase, just below my anerobic threshold).
Anyway it wasn’t that tough to run 100+ miles on 7 runs, even ran one 16 at mp pace (the Tuesday run). It was a major scheduling issue (and somewhat mentally draining). I doubt I could sustain that on a long term basis without getting a divorce first. Oh, and if I tried doing this mileage on a regular basis, I am certain my wife would divorce me.

T-7 track including 4 x 1200
Th-10.5 including some timeed fartlek & 2 mile of threshold
total = 52.5
the heat was part of my ‘problem’ this week, the other thing was work, had a newbie who almost crushed a large project… meant lots of extra work for me an another co-coworker.. could have been easily avoide, oh well…
I’ll be out of town this weekend and next week so we’ll see how the milage holds up… My husband said he’d drop me off and drive down the road to wait for me while I jog along to get my miles in, right… Dakotas here I come

I ran 50 miles this past week. My training log on the computer has vanished, as my hard drive blew up with all my files, but now I’m writing it down on a piece of paper. The week was like this…
T- 8.5 (6x800m)
Watch out for Sharks, Swamp-Tiger!
