Just when I think I can't top my weekly mileage, I drop a 51.16 mile week. Here is how it broke down...
Sunday- 13.1 Mile Publix Half Marathon 8:24 mile avg.
Tuesday- 6.6 Miles in 1:02:05 and easy run... (6.4 avg)
Thursday- 12.64 miles in 2 hours (6.3 avg)
Saturday 18.81 miles in 3:01:22 (6.2 avg)
The most important aspect of this week was the last 2 runs. I ran a total of 31+ miles at a 9:38 pace. If I apply that to Knoxville this next week, that could add up to a 4:12:18 marathon. The nutrition is there, the legs are there, but make no mistake about it, I am running this race for Piper. God will decide what my finish time will be. I am not worried about that.
