Week 16– Mileage (11/20-11/26) *UPDATE

I had a great week and still feel good. Ran 70.84 miles with a total of 6,177’ of elevation gain.  It was a mix of road with heavy trails. Balancing being a dad, husband, a professional, and a runner is not easy, but it was a bit easier this week due to the holiday schedule, so let’s see how next week unfolds. 

I also tried out my new XC racing flats over on Chimney Gulch. They felt great, but only wanted to break them in a bit, so I ran 3.21 miles up with 1,450’ feet of gain then turned around and went back down.
I would like to maintain the mileage of at least 70 miles, but up the vertical gain a bit to an average of 8,000’ a week.
*Update - Today, (the next day) I really feel it, like really feel it but in a good way though.  I decided to take a rest day, I needed to take a rest.  I get back to it tomorrow.
