Day 44 is done and dusted and I'm nearing the end of week 6. Tomorrow I'll be trying to run 9.1 miles in order to take the weekly total to 60 miles. I'm liking the uniformity of the weekly mileage build. However I'm REALLY struggling with this weeks 60 miles. I've been running tired pretty much every day of the week. I think it's time to introduce a step back week. I'll be taking it easy on Monday and Tuesday but naturally I'll be completing the 30 mins on each of the days.
Week 1 – 35 miles
Week 2 – 40 miles
Week 3 – 45 miles
Week 4 – 50 miles
Week 5 – 55 miles
Week 6 – 60 miles (hopefully)
What is also making things tough at the moment is the blisters I've got in between both big toes and the adjacent toes. It's very painful and most runs start with taping up my feet.
Last night I ran 8 miles after work and then only 12 hours later ran 16 miles X country across the North Downs from Newlands Corner over towards Dorking. With snow and ice on the ground coupled with some extremely slippy sections I was glad to complete what was a very tough out and back X country run. Very tired legs. Need to get some sleep now.
