Yesterday’s run was 7.05 miles in 55:49. I was especially pleased with this run noting it was at night on the treadmill — precisely the combination that I struggled with previously. Although not my preferred method, the treadmill is a good source to mix training up every once in a while as well as allows safe running 24/7. The treadmill gives no consideration to the time of day, weather conditions, or time constraints.
Although my mileage will not be as high as planned this week, I think this has been a good transition week. I have slept more this week than I have in many months. I think we all get to the point at which we have to listen to our bodies — mine was definitely telling me I needed more rest.
I hope to get a decent amount of mileage in this weekend. I’ll see how I feel after tomorrow’s long run in deciding what next week’s training will look like as I prepare to start my marathon training soon.
