Double-digit midweek runs: I'm holding up pretty well

Today's run: 14.5 miles in 2:00:30

I was originally going to run "just" 12 miles this morning. But the other three members of the Team Rogue gang I usually find myself running with (Jonathan, Cat, and Chris) were all going 14 (and Jonathan was going 20), so I decided I might as well do 14 miles as well.

I decided no matter what they did in the beginning of the run, I was going to take it easy. I think after our 20-miler Saturday, nobody was in the mood to run fast and that was a good thing. We moseyed along the first half of the run, which had a lot of little rolling hills, averaging about 8:50. The second half was mostly flat orĀ  downhill and we picked up the pace just a bit, averaging about 7:50 for the second half of the run.

My legs felt much better today than they did Saturday.

I've run 65 miles the last six days and my body is starting to get used to the heavy mileage.

And that's a good thing, because we haven't even started doing any speedwork.

That starts Thursday.

How many weeks did it take you to get used to your new mileage?
