This was going to be a big stretch. My target was 70 miles over eight days! Sunday to Sunday.
Here’s how it went down;
Sunday; 18 miles road at 8:30 pace, followed by an hour on the bike
Monday; 8 miles on the road, this was a hard slow eight miles
Wednesday; 5 miles on the Treadmill at 9:00 pace
Thursday; 7 miles on the Treadmill at 8:34
Friday; 4 miles on the Treadmill at 8:00
Saturday; 11 miles on the Treadmill at 8:43
Sunday; 18.25 miles on the Tr…ails!!! Ran an out-and-back with Becca and then ran home, well nearly home! Pic say 19, I forgot to turn off GPS in the car!
So 71.25 miles and mission accomplished!
This week is a taper week, Monday off, 8 on Tuesday, 4 on Wednesday and 2 on Thursday!
Friday I am off work, prepping and feet up!
Saturday race day!
Some fun facts; since starting this journey last July 20th I have covered 1568.3 miles in 264:24:25 (HMS) and climbed 146,875’ as well as racing a 12k, a 25k, a 30k, a Marathon, a 50k, another 50k and a 35 miler.
Next week, post recovery, I am really looking forward to getting back on these…
