AM - 5. very very easy

AM2 - 20. even though the effort wasn’t too much more than earlier today the pace was just a few seconds short of being a full 2 minutes per mile faster, fastest pace this week i believe. just felt good. finished at 10:30 so i should be able to actually get a bit of recovery in before the next run.

PM - 5 easy. felt much better than i did on this run on tuesday. got in a solid nap in between runs.

PM - 15 easy. legs felt way good but it was very windy and while i can handle headwind, i’m a couple weeks from my anniversary of my last haircut and my hair is very curly and bouncy anyway so the tailwind turned it into a golden curtain covering my face where i literally couldn’t see. ended up having to just use a hand to hold it back whenever the wind was to my back because i think headbands are wack and i’d rather die than have a man-bun

i don’t know what i expected to feel finishing a 200 mile week, but i didn’t feel anything. i guess it’s good; this isn’t the end-all of training and lauding myself would just get me complacent. definitely could have ran more considering i had half a week of classes, a lab final and worked 30 hours on top of everything i ran. another thing - my legs are absolutely shredded compared to 7 days ago. webs of veins up my legs, biceps, i even have veins on my chest now. i’ve always had crazy wrist veins but now it looks like a paper cut could kill me. and to end the post on a happier note how i felt today put my mind to ease that this mileage jump wasn’t suicidal and could actually be doable. if you think otherwise keep it to yourself unless you’re also a member of the 200-mile week club ;)

TWENTY MORE! DO IT!! That would be epic!

iím knocking on wood as i type this but based how that 20 felt i think itís in the bag. it doesnít feel like THAT big of a deal because iím about at the point where running just doesnít exhaust me anymore but i know a 200 mile week would be crazy.

if i do do it save your congratulations though; if my body can handle it 200 is the max iíd like to do consistently, but iím increasing the mileage more over the next 3 weeks to run a crazy high mileage week my week after finals where i wonít have to do anything but run, eat, and sleep. i wonít say the number... just know that if i get to it the gerry lindgren comparison would be warranted :)

Congratulations! What a memorable experience this must be!

PS: Definitely get a headband. They aren't wack, and the Karate tie ones are cool (Nike is the best I've found). Literally half of the NBA players wear them.

This has to be a blog first. In the 1970s I think Bill Rogers topped out in the 170s.
