Happy Humpday! I am less than 75 days to go until my MS Run The US start line (and only about 5 weeks away from the Salt Lake City Marathon)! I hit my first 60+ mileage week this year and had strong training runs throughout the entire week! I fit in two strength training sessions on my own, hit all of my goal paced workouts, and only did one run on the treadmill. I gained a total of 2, 137' of elevation (my highest ever recorded), including over 500' in my long run on Saturday morning of 16 miles.
Monday: 1.5 warm up; 8 miles @ tempo 8:20-8:35 (actual: 8:20); 1.5 cool-down. Felt strong and relatively easy & Yoga & 15 minutes strength training
Tuesday: 8 miles easy @ 9:58 pace
Wednesday: 1.5 warm-up; 6 x 1 mile @ 8:00-8:10 (actual: 8:14, 8:05, 8:01, 8:06, 8:10, 8:01) with 400R between sets; 1.0 cool-down. 10 miles total & 15 minutes of foam rolling/ strength training
