Wowza, August ended with the most miles I have ever ran in a month! I ran 158 miles!! It is the sixth month in a row that I have ran 100 miles in a month. That is really good for me! Last year, I only ran 100 miles in a month just once. This past week was okay. It was like a recovery week after running my first 20 miler. Here’s what I did:
Wednesday – Another early morning 5 mile run. Since it’s so dark out when I run, I decided to invest in a headlamp and got one from REI outlet for less than $14 with coupon code.
Thursday – I did Insanity Max:30’s recovery workout, Pulse. I like how it’s only 20 minutes.Friday – Ran 8 miles and it was surprisingly cold, 44F. Wednesday’s run was 57F. My hands were so cold and felt like I needed gloves and I was just wearing shorts and a short sleeved shirt. I warmed up after a while and then felt fine.
Sunday – Rest Day.
I’d say marathon training is still going well. I can’t believe the Portland Marathon is just four weeks away. I have a 20 miler scheduled for Saturday and I’m pacing a half marathon that day. I hope to get the rest of the miles afterwards. We’ll see how it goes.
How’d your week go? Any races coming up?
