Ran 12.5 miles today and 40+ miles this week.
This has been week number 6 of my marathon training. A lot of the nuts and bolts from my training I blogged about. From active recovery to training plan, mental strategy to physical resiliency – much more than merely just get out and run.
Certainly over-thinking the marathon training is risky. It can back fire and totally mess up the developmental sequence. For this reason, many runners hire a coach or adopt a generic training plan to eliminate the burden of worrying.
But for me, I am okay with the amount of details that I am addressing. Because the feedback between my physical progress and mental knowledge has been useful. It is something I will continue to leverage throughout my 20 week marathon training.
Have a great week.
