I haven’t run 23.5 miles in a single week since… the week of October 25, actually (oh, one of the many reasons why I love being meticulous about tracking my workouts – I can pull up random facts like that!).
I’m going to max out at 25 or 26 miles in the next few weeks in preparation for my Half Marathon – I know other people run more but I’ve found that I just can’t do it. It exhausts me to go over 30, and all the training starts to have a negative impact rather than a positive one. One of the many reasons that I prefer 13.1 miles over the full marathon!
