Last weeks running was (12th April 2010 – 18th April 2010) – 48.13 miles in 5 runs.
This is more or less my manageable limit without becoming totally crocked. As I type this my right hip is wondering how much tighter it can get. It isn’t helping that the NB1064s are at their limit either (new ones on order).
13/4/2010 8.05 miles in 1:02:56 (7:49min/mile) 149HR avg
15/4/2010 6.45 miles in 50:42:39 (7:52 min/mile) 147HR avg
16/4/12010 8.03 miles in 1:02:38 (7:48min/mile) – 147HR avg
17/4/2010 7.59 miles in 1:00:21 (7:57min/mile) 148HR avg – Hills
18/4/2010 18.01 miles in 2:24:06 (8:00min/mile) 144HR avg – some of yesterday’s hills
I bought a pair of compression recovery socks as well and apart from looking like a BDSM merchant in the bedroom they seem to be doing the trick – they do leave a bit of an elastic mark around the bottom of the knee though.
Like last week, the running has been very enjoyable for the most part. I would happily clock a crap marathon time if I could have enjoyable training like this in every training cycle.
Marathon is about 7 weeks away.
