This week was my longest mileage week ever! 26 wonderful miles actually felt easier than the 12-15 I’m normally used to doing. I also bought some new laces (Yankz) and stopped using my orthotic insoles… I might have the happiest legs/feet in the world!! Sunday was also my best training run to date – 8 miles of pure enjoyment ūüôā Its the longest run I’ve had so far and the first time I’ve ran with no pain whatsoever. I’m hoping I have many more days like that! Here’s how the rest of the week went:

1/10   Bike Р1.5 hour easy
1/11    Hills Р8 x 20 sec (9mph, 7% incline) 3:00 recovery
             2 mi warm up & 2 mi cool down (9:15 pace)
1/12   Bike LT Р5 min @ 182 bpm, 2.5 min rec, 5 min @ 185  bpm
             20 min w/u, 20 min c/d
1/13   Easy Run Р7 mi @ 9:15 (5 min walk every 3 miles)
1/14   Hills Р8 x 20 sec (9 mph, 7% incline) 2:00 recovery
             2 mi w/u, 2 mi c/d (9:15 pace)
1/15    Bike Р1.5 hours easy (150 bpm)
1/16    Long Run Р8 mi (5 min walk every 3 miles)

Totals:    Run Р26 miles
                  Bike Р4 hours

This week will be much of the same workouts, but I’m going to try and add some pilates and strong classes on my lighter days.
