The Road To 2012 NYC Marathon – Summary of T-3 Week
Week 14 of training – a simple 5, 8, 5, 9. Nothing in double digits. That said that last 18 miler from last week must have really wiped me out. I struggled quite a bit with the 5, 8, 5 runs – needing a lot more breaks than usual. I did the 18 miler with short breaks at 5, 10 and 15. This week on the mid-week 8 I was taking breaks after 3 and and a few more after that. Same with treadmill 5’s, needed to take breathers and slow down – which I haven’t had to do on the short runs in forever. Either the 18 miler was more taxing than I thought or my initial paces were too high. Finally back into the groove on the 9 miler on Sunday. Break after 5 and pretty much straight through to end.
Next week looks almost lazy – 3, 5, 3, and 8….
