There is not much to be said about this week. As previously mentioned, last week was my biggest week of training so far in this training cycle. As a result, the focus this week was to recover from last week’s mileage.
This week has been a very quiet week. I only had three runs assigned and I have stuck with the plan. I figure the recovery this week will be as important overall as the training last week so I was not tempted to try and fit in extra mileage this week.
So far I have only gone for two runs this week for a total of just under 18 km. Tomorrow I will fit in my last run of the week, an easy 10 km effort. It is my lowest week in terms of mileage in a long while but again coming off last week I think it was well timed.
I will know what my plan is for next week once I receive it from my coach. With one month left before race day I am expecting there will be one more intense week of training left befoe the three week taper sets in. Included in that last big week of training will be my final 30 km training run of this cycle.
How did your week go?
