31 miles done + long run today

I was scheduled to run 30 miles this week but ran 31. Booyahh!! It felt good to finish my week running 10 miles today. (Sunday is my rest day so my week ends on Saturdays.) I ran at about a 9:30 pace and just took it easy. I came home and drank my Vanilla Whey Protein smoothie and felt awesome. I need to be better at stretching after my runs though. I'm not terrific at it...Actually I suck. Maybe stretching before I get home would resolve this problem because once I walk through the door Baby J wants all my attention. I also wasn't very good at getting my arm workouts in. I only did one.

Anyways, next week is my last week before I start my marathon schedule. Hurray. I'm gonna shoot for 30 miles again. Here's what my week looks like:

Monday: 3 miles + arms
Tuesday: 7 miles (3 at lactate threshold pace 7:47)
Wednesday: 3 miles + arms
Thursday: 6 miles
Friday: Rest
Saturday: 11 miles (Between 9 and 9:46 pace)
Sunday: Rest


  1. Congrats on hitting your mileage for the week! You'll be so ready to kick off marathon training.

  2. Great Job and keeping your planned schedule and hitting your mileage goals. Keep it Up! I got burnt out this summer (was up to 9 miles) but now I restarted and today, my long run was 4.5 miles. I increased my mileage to fast this summer. See my recent post on "Avoid Burning Out" lol. Well Congrats, and Keep Running!

  3. It's such a nice feeling when the long runs begin to feel good! Also, vanilla Gu tastes like a bad way, if that's possible.

  4. Great job! I suck at stretching too. I never do it!
