Tonight, I ran a nice 6 mile recovery run. My overall time was 55 minutes and change. I averaged around 9:15ish per mile. It was exactly what I needed. I got some miles in and kept it slow since I am coming off 8 on Monday, 15 on Tuesday, and a hard 5 miler yesterday.
At 34 miles for the week, I am a little tired now, but still feel good. I am looking at another easy 5 miler tomorrow. Although I will not be running this weekend, I am doing some serious work at the house building a retaining wall that will be approximately 700 blocks. Each block weighs roughly 22 lbs. Thank God my brothers and sister in laws are coming to help.
Heading into next week, I will max out my mileage in training before I start to taper the following week. Next week will be about a 40-42 mile week. Tomorrow I will post some information about the marathon for those spectating and that may want to follow me on the race course.
