So with last weeks buttroversy (piriformis) I decided to take it easy. I skipped speedwork and I skipped hills last week. I also tried to take more rest days….ok so I took 1 extra rest day, probably should have taken 1 more. My goal was to run every other day but then I ran 3 days in a row, oops.
Sunday: 20 miles (Towpath Half Marathon)
Tuesday: 5 Miles
Thursday: 5 miles
Friday: 5 miles
Total Mileage: 51 miles
And just when I thought I was taking it easy last week, I add up my miles and I am right back at 50. Really this only happened because I did a long run on Sunday and then the next one on Saturday. This week I am doing my long run on Friday (since I am going on a little trip:) ) so that will be interesting.
One thing I have noticed is I keep getting cramps while running now, usually around 4 miles. Anyone else experiencing this? What helps? Usually if I walk for a minute it goes away.
