Week six was a week of comparitive rest, the second step-back week in the training schedule. Every third week provides a little recovery to prepare for two more weeks of increasing mileage. I continued to use a hybrid of Higdon's Intermediate 1 and Intermediate 2 programs, running #1 on weekdays, and #2 on the weekend. This week reduced the long run distance from 13 miles to 10 miles, and dropped the weekly total by a little more than 3 miles. This week's total: 29.2 miles.
Next week will be quite a bit tougher. The mid-week medium run increases from 6 to 7 miles. If I continue with the hybrid program, Sunday's long run goes to 16 miles. The total for the week should be around 39 miles.
