49 miles this week. An easy week. A step down week. A couple of hard interval sessions, a few easy runs thrown in for good measure, and I'm trying to figure out how to work in my group runs and the easy trail runs I want to do.
There just aren't enough miles in a step down week is what I'm feeling.
Tomorrow i'm looking forward to doing maybe 10 miles with a warm up, a cool down, and my threshold interval running session.
Tomorrow I'm hoping for as much fun as I had last week doing my threshold workout.
This week I'm hoping for a nice, relaxing, easy time doing my running.
Because when I say this week is a step down week, it logically implies that there's a step up looming over me like a barely scalable cliff, casting it's shadow over the training I'm doing now.
70 miles next week. it's a lot of miles for a middle of the packer like myself. It's what I chose for my max number of miles, and with 12 weeks left before game time, Daniels formula says it's time to do them.
I gotta say: I'm really looking forward to it. :)
