Only 7 weeks until April 5, The Martian Marathon. Last week was a big mileage week for me. I haven't run 41 miles in one week in a long long time. So far, only a very slight calf issue (but I'll see my niece the doc to take a look at it - and if she tells me "stop running"... I'll cut her out of her inheritance LOL), but I've been icing and Ibuprofening (Vitamin I) to combat it.
Monday: Easy 5 miles @10:00
Tuesday: Tempo Run 8 miles incl 6 mi @9:01
Thursday: Easy 18 Miles @ 10:21 (That's a biggie)
Friday: Easy 4 miles (recovery run after the big'un)
Saturday: Easy 9 Miles @ 10:21
Total: 44 Miles
I've moved into the Asics Cumulus (a Neutral Shoe) from the Kayanos (a Stability Plus shoe). This also saves me some $$$ since the Kayanos are the Gold Standard of running shoes. I'm pretty sure now, that I was running in the wrong type of shoe all these years. I've upped my mileage a lot and my calves don't feel like a bag of concrete anymore.
