Please note that I ran 37 miles last week and 47 miles this week. I do not recommend that much of an increase especially for newer runners or first time marathoners. It is the perfect recipe for an injury. I am just really lucky that my body enjoys for it to be beaten up.
Also note that the change in mileage and intensity of workouts left me pretty exhausted towards the end of the week.
Sunday: 8 miles-outside with Mason, Beal, Ryan and Kristy.
Monday: Rest Day
Tuesday: Speedwork=2-1 miles @ 6:50 and 6:46, 4-800s @ 3:09, 3:07, 3:05 and 3:03. Plus warm up and cool down=7 miles
Wednesday: 7 Miles
Thursday: 7 Miles
Friday: 4 Miles (supposed to do 6 but too tired so I cute it short) 15 mins elliptical=Cross training
Saturday: 14 miles at 8:34 pace
Total Mileage: 47 Miles
How is your training shaping up?
