Week 43, 2010 training summary


Slowed it down a little this week as the mileage continues to climb a bit.  Only one more week of building and the taper starts for the Space Coast Marathon. It is hard to believe it is already THAT close.

Had a bit of nervousness on Thursday morning when I felt a little pain below my knee during the run. I stopped and stretched, then continued slow and easy.  After completing the run I iced it all day, and also iced on Friday during my rest day.  Saturday I felt no pain at all, so was very relieved.  My body is telling me to ease up a little as the mileage climbs, so I am listening and continue to ice the knees whenever I think of it.

Next week will be my first time breaking 60 miles in a week, so I am paying very close attention to the signals my body is putting out. I am very excited to think that I am actually going into uncharted territory for myself, and also a little nervous.  But my weight seems to be holding up great, and energy levels are off the charts.

    Hi Adam,
    You had a very impressive week of running. I think that you are being smart by listening to your body…slow and easy can be good at times:) Good luck with the rest of your marathon training! Enjoy the rest of the week!

    You know, I’ve never broken 60 mpw. For that matter, never 50 mpw so…rock on!
