HIGHEST MILEAGE WEEK EVER! (Unless you count MS Run The US…which in that case I’ll probably never get that high again ; ) …). I’m so proud of how my body handled the higher mileage and honestly, when I finished my long run on Saturday I didn’t feel like ‘drop dead exhausted’ - which tells me that the 50 miler is within my capacity! It has definitely been challenging trying to shoot for a goal marathon time AND a 50 miler, but I wouldn’t have decided to train for both if I didn’t think that shooting for a moderate marathon time wasn’t fairly within my reach. Some of my marathon effort workouts (especially in these last few high mileage weeks) haven’t gone week, but that’s kinda to be expected and I trust that when I make the switch back over to marathon-specific tapering (tomorrow!), I’ll be able to conjure up those goal speeds.
