Miakonda Training week 21

My last peak week, and my first time reaching a training week with 60 miles! This was a big mental boost for me to reach this, and doing it in such awful weather is also a nice boon as well. Now I finally enter my taper and pray for overcast and cool race day conditions!

  • Monday: Rest.
  • Tuesday: 9 miles on the trail.
  • Wednesday: 6 miles, tiny loops.
  • Thursday: Rest. The weather went from unbearably hot to severe thunderstorms so I didn’t have a chance to get out.
  • Friday: Rest.
  • Saturday: 25 miles. My god, the humidity was just oppressive. It’s been bad all summer, but this seemed even worse. Slogged it out though.
  • Sunday: 20 miles. More humidity, and trashed legs. But got the mileage done, which was a huge mental boost for me!
  • Long run fuel: Tailwind, Gu.
  • BWF/Core work: None specifically this week.
  • Yoga: No yoga this week.
  • Stretching: Got all my stretching in!
