Marathon Training Program: Week 12

This week was a recovery week.  Total miles were reduced from 50 miles to 34, and the weekly long run reduced from 20 miles to 12. 

Tuesday's run was a little slow and sluggish; I still felt fatigued from Sunday's 20.  Wednesday's run felt pretty normal, and by Thursday, my legs felt the effect of fewer weekly miles.  Thursday's and Saturday's runs were both a little quicker than my typical training pace and Sunday's 12 mile run averaged 9:40 pace, my quickest ever for 12 miles.

Next week's schedule returns to 50 miles, with back-to-back 10 and 20 milers on Saturday and Sunday.

12 weeks down, 6 to go!
