I am wiped out.  This is the highest mileage week that I have ever done and actually just my second 100 mile week.  The last three weeks were 100, 90, and 102 this week.  That is by far the most mileage I have done in a 3 week period.  I have also ran 24 days straight.  That is my longest period with no days off since the last week of December, 1989.  I am tired and just want to sleep.  From Wednesday on this week it felt like an absurd effort just to get home from the afternoon runs at the high school.  Wednesday and Saturday were my only quality days this week.  Wednesday was supposed to be a harder day, actually a mountain workout.  But I changed my mind after the morning run.  Tomorrow is a day off.  The plan for next week is 70-80 miles and hopefully one high quality mountain workout.  The priority for next week is recover and reduce any aches or pains to zero.

  1. Jason, very interesting training log. I ran my highest mileage week in over eight years that same week (January 9-16). It was 70 miles which pales in comparison to your 100, but it's a lot for me. I usually do well on 40-50 quality miles. Interesting that we are both adding on the volume and with highest mileage weeks the day after Little River Trail Run. Hope to run 75 this week and I am off to a good start. Hope to run with you soon. Good writing by the way. We will have to talk more about the Jesus stuff. I like him too.
