A good week. The treadmill tempo was really tough so I just did strides on thursday instead of another workout. Felt good to go into Sunday's long run a little more rested. The reality of Rock and Ice is settling in as it gets closer. I only have five or six precious weeks left to put in hard training. The gym is annoyingly busy but I want to keep up the treadmill tempos as they really help me feel stronger.
