Week in Review

~87-88 miles
2 trips to Chik-Fil-A
3 days at OK Runner
0 minivans

It's funny how your perspective changes. A few months ago I would've been shocked and awed at putting in this much mileage, but as I'm typing this I'm more apt to view this as a "down" week. Had I attempted the requisite long run on Sunday I would've been in the ballpark of 95 miles, which for me might be a bit much, so I'm okay with taking a bit of down time. Plus, as I mentioned previously, the combination of two solid workouts plus a hard steady run meant I had quality that made up for the lack of quantity.

Overall--and I hesitate to type this--everything feels good. My legs are often tired but seem to recover fairly quickly, and I have yet to feel a hint of injury or illness coming on. At this point it's just about keeping it together for another month or so. Team MJ has pretty much already won the war of attrition, so now it's time to finish the task at hand.

That comment was directed less at your impending performance and more at the condition of your teammate.
