2017 Fall Marathon Training Week #7

Miles: 57.53

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.
