My goodness...five weeks in the books. I cannot believe it!
Last week was the beginning of high mileage weeks. In the coming weeks my mid week long run will be 9+ miles and my weekend long run will be 14+ miles. Speed work also begins. I am excited, but nervous!
I ran 37.5 miles. My big accomplishment for the week was running my 1,500th mile of the year!
I felt like I was "in the zone" all week. Every run was easy. Every run was fun. Every run passed quickly. I am praying this lasts until March 3rd!! I also was able to run at night once and I loved it. The streets are ablaze with Christmas lights and it is just magical!
I am a little worried that I am running too fast. I did feel tired or like I am pushing it on any runs (except my speed work runs), but I still worry some.
My hip hurt after my run on Saturday, which it usually does after a long run. Foam rolling and stretching are wonderful things!
Come on week 6!!!!
