I did it! I broke 40 miles in one week. For me, this was a big deal. My highest mileage week this year was around 39, and even when I trained for the Cleveland Marathon, my highest mileage week for training was just 40. But this week, thanks to some solo and stroller runs, and some days of more than one run in a day, I was able to get to my all-time high of 43.2 miles! And, I’m still streaking – I’m at 44 days of running in a row.
Here’s a look at the week as a whole:
And some more about my runs during the week:
Sunday, Friday and Saturday included double run days. Sunday, the kids woke up early, and I got in a slow run (with some walking) with the double jogging stroller while B slept. I hadn’t done a real stroller run that I can remember since January, and never with the double stroller. It’s not a real running stroller so it was heavy and awkward to push — and running with two kids is no joke! Then, after B got up, I got in a 5K by myself.
Friday, I ran in the morning before work, and then after dinner, we went over to my sister-in-law’s house as she was packing to get ready to move. We brought them over dinner and B took the kids in the bike while I ran over (and home).
Saturday included a run with LM in the stroller! I don’t know the last time I took her out alone, and she made it nearly 40 minutes without whining too much. After taking her out, B took the kids over to his parents house to see them (still 6 feet apart), so I ran there (2 miles) and back.
Some questions for you:
- Do you ever run with a stroller? Double stroller?
- What’s your highest mileage week?
