Upping the mileage
My planned mileage went up this week with long runs going from 1 to 1.5 hrs. My other runs stay the same, shorter tempo runs as I still need the speed for my upcoming sprint triathlon.
My training focus is still for Race to the Stones and one way to help motivation and get ideas is using Strava, where I can track my training and see what others are doing.
I am part of the Profeet Strava club, which is public, and contains some high level ultra runners. As a novice it’s an eye-opener to see what the ‘Pros’ are doing in terms of mileage and speed.
