This week was a recovery week from the stress of moving a million boxes for my son. My immediate goal this week was to get my mileage back to my pre-box mileage. I accomplished that goal in my run today.
During the past six months, I've been running reduced mileage while I focused on running a faster LSD pace. Now, I'm ready to get my mileage back to the 30 miles/week that I need to train for the Salt Lake City Half-Marathon next April. Next week I'll run 5 miles on Monday and Tuesday and add a mile for 6 miles on Wednesday. If I feel fine on Saturday, I'll add a mile there for 6 on that day. Then, on subsequent weeks I'll add another mile to the two runs, until I get Wednesday's medium run up to 10 miles and Saturday's long run up to 13 miles. During all of this, I hope to keep my faster LSD pace.
