today: 1 mile warm-up for strength training @ 06:00
week: (only) 5 miles.
I'm still sore from my strength workout on Tuesday, specially pecs. Had a mediocre workout, but would have loved to do 5 or 6 running. Conventional wisdom is that you rest 48 to 72 hours between hard workouts to let your body repair and grow. Looks like my 48 wasn't long enough.
What I am about is making training for the marathon a lifestyle. Contemporary medical advice recommends 60 - 90 minutes a day of vigorous exercise. This is consistent with training for the marathon at the amateur level.
