The weather definitely cooperated with me this week as I finished up with 60.5 miles, my third straight week right at 60 on the nose. Not really intentional as I plan my three easiest days of the week totally by feel and those runs can range anywhere from 5-8 miles give or take. Every day was in the 30s more or less with it hitting a 'balmy' 43 or so when I ran a 13 miler in the park this morning. Other highlights of the week included 20 minutes of tempo work on Monday, a nice easy 11 miler on Wednesday and some short hill sprints on Thursday. Next week should be a good one as I have 5 x 5:00 w/ 3:00 rests on Monday, 6 x 400 meter hill reps on Thursday, and a 13-14 mile long run on Saturday penciled in as the key sessions. On a side note, just picked up a pair of the Brooks Launch as the main lightweight trainer in my rotation and man, do I love these. Only 9.3 ounces but lots of cushion. Highly recommended if you're a neutral foot striker.
