Happy Tuesday! For today’s post I have a runfession — I had a low mileage week.
At this point in my training, I probably should be increasing the mileage each week, but this week I was a little bit down in the numbers. I typically start off the week strong with a long run, but I was out of town for a bachelorette party and clocked in zero miles on Sunday.
Sooooo where did that get me? In terms of mileage, this week (Sunday-Saturday) ended at 21.53 miles. The runs included:
Sunday: Nothing! I was in Cincinnati for my sister-in-law’s bachelorette party and the day involved getting brunch and then driving back to Cleveland. And going to bed early after a weekend of little sleep!
Monday: 4 miles on the treadmill.
Tuesday: 40 minute tempo run; 4.6 miles on the treadmill.
Wednesday: 5.3 miles on the treadmill. I ran 3 miles and then had enough time to walk/run a cooldown to get to 5.3.
Thursday: 3.2 miles on the treadmill. I woke up Thursday TIRED. Beteeen work, FW being sick and being away the previous weekend, I felt as if I was lacking some serious sleep. Nevertheless, I managed to get in a few sluggish miles.
Friday: None – rest day!
Saturday: 4.42 miles on the treadmill. It was sunny but cold outside so I decided to take it easy and watch some Netflix while working out.
Total- 21.53 miles!
Was it a bad week? No. Did I have any really bad runs? No. So here’s to hoping for a little higher mileage in the weeks moving forward!
Some questions for you:
- What do you consider a “long” run?
- What’s your average weekly mileage?
