Hail my running brothers and sisters! This week I ran a total of 19:61 miles at an average pace of 7:50/mile. I did 1:25:00 hours of cross-training/weights. My weight checked in at 159 lbs today. This was a rest/taper week as I went into my first race(s) for 2010. While I would have liked to have broken 20 miles for the week, I won't beat myself up not getting my miles as my intensity stayed pretty high. As for my race, I only did the 10K last year, but this year I did the 5K also and managed to better my 10K time by 8:18. Next week will be tough as I go back to my regular run week. Next week, I'm hoping to get in 38 miles and maintain my a"t least 10 minutes of cross-training each night" rule. Throw in that I'm fighting the early stages of a cold, and I'll be lucky to get in 10 miles. Okay, the Nyquil is starting to kick in, so I guess I'll go crash. Have fun and run hard!
