Have encountered my first little hiccup in the high mileage plan. Thurs AM I noticed a slight shin niggle towards the end of the run. Thurs PM it there from the start but still only a niggle. Fri AM I decided to go the gym and run there in case it got worse. It got worse, so I binned it after 3m. Have been XT'ing twice a day and it feels much better today. Have an apt with my physio on Monday to rule out anything really nasty before I hopefully get back to it
Looking back, when I bumped from 112 to 120m I did it all at the back end of one week, and then carried on at that level at the beginning of the next, which meant that I ran 126 miles in 7 days. Hopefully it's just this increase that has caused the problem.
CW - Sounds very much like a little break will do you the world of good.
Dan A - Very envious of your La Santa exploits. Nice HM as well.
Jools - Nice XC'ing and bling.
Had a minor change of plan this week; the idea was to do 112 again but somehwere around 7:00/mile. Early in the week it was clear that the 'easy' runs were feeling too hard and I was beginning to feel run down/low on mojo so decided to put in some more miles in at the same pace as last week. Felt much better after a day or two and finished with 120 miles @ 7:04. Biggest week ever.
One more big week before starting to taper a bit towards the back end of the week after next.
