This week was 68 miles of running, 1500 yards of swimming and 18 "miles" of pool-running -- training log is here.
Another week in the books. I was decently satisfied with Tuesday and Friday's workouts; a bit less with Sundays - 21 miles was a shock to the system - my legs just got tired by the time the marathon effort part started. I guess that happens when you haven't run further than 17 since June.
I've traditionally gone with just two 20 milers in a marathon cycle, but they've always both gone well. This one didn't. And now I'm wondering if I should have gone with three for this training cycle.
I guess we'll see how next week goes. And how the second 20 goes. It might just be that a) I'm adjusting to a heavy mileage week and b) I did a bit too much leg strengthwork on Friday (my legs were still a bit heavy on Sunday)
Monday: 7.5 "miles" of pool-running and upper body weights/core. Foam rolling at night.
