Last week was pretty much what I expected. I took the weekend off from running in exchange for approximately 25 miles of cross training, er hiking, through rugged mountain terrain carrying a 35-40 pound backpack the entire time. (More on that in my next post!)
I’m satisfied with the 27 miles I did run (putting me right at 100 so far for July) and if I factor in the mileage from backpacking, not to mention the elevation ranging from 8,000 to 10,000 feet, it was a solid week of training!
Later this week I will be off on my next adventure so I know my mileage will be somewhat limited but I’ve made the necessary adjustments to my training plan to accommodate my travels and am confident that I’ll be able to pick up where I left off when I return.
I hope your week is off to a great start!
