Last week was supposed to be a recovery week. It turned into the biggest running week of my life. This was supposed to be my last peak training week for my upcoming marathon, but turned into an early taper week instead. I knew that I had a lot more work demands this week then last. I am also cramming for a board exam next week. So, I took training time when I could (which was sometimes a little tight and would end up being cut short). Overall, I still notched 40 miles running, which I am satisfied with.
Next week, the true running taper begins. With boards next weekend, I will simply do my best. After that, I should be able to ramp up the bike. Weather is getting nice enough, that I should be able to get the bike off the trainer and ride outside. That’s when the real bike training begins!
