Summary of Week 1 Ultra Training

Yesterday I did an easy 4 mile recovery run which brought my total mileage for the week to just over 37 miles! That’s a good way to end Week 1 of Ultra training, eh? And after today or tomorrow’s 4 mile run I’ll have another month of 100+ miles!

Week of June 22nd - 28th, 2015
Week of June 22nd – 28th, 2015

My typical weekly running schedule includes speed, easy, hills, long, and recovery. I’m not doing tempo runs this go-around since I’ll be using intervals for all long runs. Intervals make me happy :)

Have a great week!

  1. You are so awesome! And I agree, I finally found my running mojo using intervals. 1:00/:30 really seem to be working well for me! I’m going to be signing up for the Bix race today. It’s a 7-mile race at the end of July that I did last year, and I’m looking forward to using the 1:00/:30 intervals this year.

  2. You’ll be happy to know I revisited intervals on my easy run today. Seemed to work well. I have some thoughts on why, but I’ll save that for the blog. ;)

    I don’t think I’ve ever done more than 30 miles in a week & since this training cycle is just started, I am waaaaay below that. But that’s ok. Seems I often end up injured by fall – although it’s happened in the spring, too – so I’m good with less for now.

    Here’s to another great week of running!
