My first week of base building is in the books. My goal for the week was 33 miles with a 10 mile long run. After my 6 and change today I finished the week at 33.79 miles. My quads were a little sore on Monday and Tuesday but felt fine after warming up. I took one day off, Thursday, after working a 12 hour shift. My shortest run of the week was a 3 miler on Wednesday. It felt odd to only be out there for that little amount of time. My long run on Friday was awesome. I started off slow with a few high 7 minute miles, picked it up gradually through out, and had a couple strong miles at 8-9 in 6:47 and 6:43.
One week down! I'll do 33 miles again this week, then increase it the following week.
