I know this sounds dorky, but I woke up feeling like a kid on Christmas morning. I was really looking forward to a short run to get me over 100 miles for the week. Aside from the two 100-mile races I've done, I have never had a 100 mile week before in training.
What I'm most happy with is how comfortably I did it. Splitting up two of the days into doubles and taking it slow on yesterday's 30-miler really helped a lot. And while yesterday's run was at a comfortable crawl, I'm happy knowing I got in some faster runs during the week as well. Nothing close to tempo-pace, but still at least at my easy pace.
While I did feel a little creaky after waking up this morning, that soon dissipated and I took off to run three miles and did it very comfortably. I honestly felt great. I'm tempted to get in another high mileage week next week but will stick to my plan of backing off a bit to rest up for what's ahead starting mid-May.
