Welcoming back the bigger miles!

Tuesday's 20mile route
The last 7 days have been a high mileage week and it felt good to be back into the 50's, while I didn't run everyday I double my mileage when compared to numerous recent weeks.

I did my second 20mile since October 2015 during the week and it certainly went much better then the first I did, I also just pushed it to just short of 21miles. My next long run will be 26miles in around 7 days time.

On Thursday I foolishly tried for a 5mile run after a big'ish meal, this wasn't the best plan and I just ended up walking some of it, but I finished with a much stronger 10mile run on Friday evening with a nice 1mile recovery afterwards.

Not to overdo it, next week will be much easier but with some speed work and then its back to another higher mileage week again which will include the 26mile run.

Last week consisted of:
- Sunday: 5.21miles @ 7:58min/mile pace & 310miles @ 25:14min/mile pace
- Monday: 10miles @ 8:02min/mile pace
- Tuesday: 20.78miles@ 9:53min/mile pace
- Wednesday: Rest
- Thursday: 5miles @ 10:20min/mile pace
- Friday: 10miles @ 7:28min/mile pace & 1mile @ 8:37min/mile pace
- Saturday: Rest

Miles This week: 55.11 miles
Miles this Year So Far: 250miles
