I finished my second consecutive day of 6 mile double runs. I’m aiming for 70 miles this week, and I’d prefer to do 5×10-mile days and 1 20-mile day, but 10 miles at a 9-10 minute pace don’t fit neatly into the work day, nor does waking up and running outside at 5:30 am work that well, plus kids… you get the idea.
So, instead, I’m breaking runs up into 6-mile segments, which is manageable for squeezing into the schedule. I may stretch my long run to 22 miles and run it on the treadmill while watching football on Saturday. Who knows.
My rolling 7-day total is 70.3 miles. The last time I ran a 70-mile “week” (Monday-Sunday), my rolling 7-day total was in the mid-80s for a couple of the days, and I felt my sacroiliac joint pain flare up. I’ll try to run more evenly this time.
