Did 9.6 Saturday and 14.5 Sunday ...gives me a total of 39.6 miles run this week as well as 6.5 miles of fast walking. I did 6 runs this week which is very very rare for me, usually 5 and sometimes only 4 if I'm doing some fast stuff. No cross training this week because of this.
If you look at my weekly mileages you'll see I'm doing a major no-no..from ~25 mpw to 39 mpw violates the "10% mileage increase per week" rule big time! However, I think it's ok because the Sunday run was taken very slow...11 min miles (lots of walk breaks) as I could tell I was pretty fagged out from the previous days and didn't want to over do it...just needed the time on my feet.
Two weeks to Copenhagen!
I signed up for the California International Marathon, aka "CIM", (Dec 4th) as my serious PR attempt race. I have lots of time to prepare but I wanted to lock it in as it does fill up. It's a point-to-point (my favorite ;) rolling hill course (but small hills..not like SFM!) with lots of net downhill...well known as a good BQ course in fact...gets good marks for crowds and organization too.
I'll probably pick out a race for Jan or Feb too as a back up in case I catch cold or otherwise can't run CIM well. Perhaps Long Beach or Surf City again? Suggestions?
