My workout schedule for the week is…
Monday: RESTDAY Walk/Run 5-10 miles, 8 strides, weights, cross-train.
Tuesday: 10 miles am 10 miles pm, 10 strides.
Wednesday: 10 miles am with 6 200's on track, 10 miles pm, 10 strides
Thursday: 10 miles am 10 miles pm, 10 strides.
Friday: RESTDAY Walk/Run 5-10 miles, 8 strides, weights, cross train.
Saturday: 17-20 miles, 10 strides.
Sunday: 20-23 miles, 10 strides.
This is approximately 110 miles, and everything I personally need to do to finish 26.2 mile races. It took me a very long time to work up to this mileage. About two years ago, I started getting into a variation of this routine to train for the Bear Mountain North Face Endurance Challenge; 50 mile race. The long-runs were farther, but I feel like I've found my groove through trial and error (I'm not running more than 26.2 miles for a very long time, hahah!). I'm very excited to jump into training for marathon season. I just love running along the Erie Canal Park for my long runs. It is so relaxing and scenic. Hope everyone is off to an absolutely amazing week!
