The Big Week

Happy September! Marathon redemption will occur this month. Trying not to freak out…

This is my biggest week for overall mileage and long run distance. I have 50 miles (80K) to run including a 23-miler (37K) on Sunday. I’m pretty sure I’ll be ready to taper after that!

I haven’t been posting my weekly training schedules regularly, but this is the big one so here it is:

Monday: rest
Tuesday: 14K (~9mi)
Wednesday: 11K (~7mi)
Thursday: 13K w/ 8 x Yasso 800s (~8mi)
Friday: rest
Saturday: 5K (~3mi)
Sunday: 37K (~23mi)

Will I survive?! ‘Course I will! The cooler weather seems to be sticking around for now, so that certainly helps.


I have a few photos from A Mid Summer Night’s Run:
