Well there went another week of training. Week number 3 dedicated to the Ventura Marathon is in the books, with 27 days away from toeing another marathon line for me. For the second straight week of training I posted 70 miles in the week, this past week it was barely. I squeaked in a 70.06 mile week, but nonetheless I still cracked the 70 mile week.
Last weeks training brought me some highlight workouts including some hill work and running trails. Another highlight of last week’s training was starting to break in my race day shoes. I like to make sure I get anywhere from 70-80 miles into a shoe before relying on them for a big race. Once I feel comfortable with them I will start to use them in my marathon pace training runs and interval runs.
