I finally feel like 25-30 miles a week of running easily fits into my routine. Just a few years ago, 25-30 miles a week would have been the peak of half marathon training. I was tired, sore, and hungry on 25-30 miles a week. Now, it's my everyday running volume. While that many miles still make me hungry, I am no longer tired or sore. Never thought I would say that. Of course, I have gotten faster in just the last year alone. I am probably spending about the same amount of time running. Faster pace means more miles in the same amount of time. Good stuff.
Sunday - three 20-minute yoga podcasts, plus lunges and calf raises. Plus 4 minutes running in my Saucony Hattori minimalist shoes. Mapped it when I got home and figured it was about .4 mile.
Monday - 5.2 mile run in showery rain.
Tuesday - Upper body strength training, one-legged squats, and .6 mile running on the treadmill in the Hattoris.
Wednesday - 5.7 mile run with my Wednesday morning group. Humid as heck. 95% at the time we were done. Bleh. It is going to be a long summer.
Thursday - 4.1 mile run with the husband. Much less humid.
Friday - Rest. I did a whirlwind overnight trip to NYC on Thursday night and didn't get much sleep. Rest was probably a good idea. My ankle was feeling a lot better.
Saturday - 9.2 mile run in Rock Creek Park. I do so enjoy Rock Creek Park. Every time I am amazed at how quiet it is in the middle of city. Pleasant temperature and not too humid. Also did planks and pushups afterwards because I didn't do them earlier in the week.
Total Miles: 24.2 miles plus 1 mile (uncounted) in minimalist shoes.
