Because I ducked out on a mile last weekend, this week ended up being the highest mileage yet of this cycle.
In previous years (last year especially), I set mileage highs in August. I think I ran 340 miles last August, an average of 10.5 a day, rather than the 8ish I'm doing now.
And then, as September came, the speed didn't arrive, and I was absolutely burned out.
I am hoping, now that I'm back on the track, and doing the same set of workouts weekly, that my racing will improve.
I have a race every single Sunday (aside from the week I am away) from next week through the end of September. By that point, I'll know for sure what kind of year this will be.
5k next week.
