So, for what it was worth, I wrapped up my four week marathon recovery cycle. I was was able to get out today to do a quick 40 minute, 4.5 mile tempo run.
The weather today was absolutely stunning:
Coupled with my easy 6 miler yesterday, I managed to squeak out pretty close to 16 miles last week. I'm satisfied considering everything else going on.
Tomorrow morning I start my next training cycle for the Los Angeles Marathon. On the schedule this week:
Monday: 3 miles GA
Tuesday: 5 miles GA
Wednesday: 3 miles GA
Thursday: 2 mile warm up, 3 hill repeats, 1 mile warm down, 4.5 miles total
Saturday: 10 miles GA
Sunday: 5 miles MP
Total: 30.5 miles
I am soooooo ready to get started....
