Long Run Today
I felt pretty drained today. I still ran a decent pace, but 10 seconds slower per mile than the same route last week, and labored more this week. For the first time in the base training I think I am feeling the increased miles. This is my heavy work week, so a lot of time standing plays as role as well. The past couple long runs I've had some minor stomach problems, so I cut back my breakfast today but then of course I was starving at the end.
I'll run a very easy 3-4 miles recovery tomorrow and finish the week around 39 miles. I'll give myself another week to adjust to the mileage by keeping it at 39 again next week, then reevaluate if I'm ready to increase again above 40 the following week.
