Monthly Summary March 2017
Device: Garmin Forerunner 630
|Total Miles: 494.47 Miles||Weight: 72 kg (158.6 lb)||Avg Pace: 7:11 m/m||Time: 59:11:55|
The plan for March was building on the base mileage with a focus on our group endurance interval sessions and some low key races to be run back to back or with a planned pace effort. The key was to not do anything that might break me or need me to take time for recovery or taper.
Being a full month with no days off say a big mileage month, actually my biggest ever at 494 miles. The reason for no days off is that I feel i training better using rest \ recovery days for active recovery runs rather than stopping.
