Weekly Recap: August 24-30 2009

Filed under: Weekly Recap — Tags: , , , — marathonmaiden @ 15:20

Miles: 62.3

Time: 9 hours 6 minutes

Strength: 1 full body day

Core: 5x

XT: 0

So my overall mileage was WAY high.  But that is because I took ZERO rest days this week.  My overall time was a little faster than normal but I think that’s because of my 1) failed tempo which was still faster than my easy pace 2) my actual tempo the very next day 3) the wicked fast recovery run that afternoon — pm runs always being fast for me and 4) my legs thinking that running faster than easy was what they were supposed to do after 3 faster-than-ordinary runs. I’m pretty sure that since the half marathon is a week away I should be more aware of the mileage I’m putting in. Granted, this race isn’t exactly the high epitome culmination race but I’d still like to do well.
