Week in Review

70 miles
4? doubles
8 hours in NYC
36 hours in Boston
30+ hours for 100x5k

This week wasn't especially well executed in terms of training, but I somehow managed to cobble together a fairly decent mileage total and three semi-workouts (two extemporaneous tempo runs during the week and one freezing cold 5k on the track on Sunday). If Sunday's run showed me anything, it's that I need to start incorporating some speedier work into my training immediately. Though my knee/IT band still isn't 100%, it paradoxically feels better the harder I run, so at least that won't provide me with any excuses.

Looking ahead to next week, I'll be home for the first few days and then I'm off to the Big Apple again for 13.1 NYC. The race is on Saturday morning, a departure from the more traditional Sunday start, and I'm taking advantage of my time in the city by staying over on Saturday night with my friend and Jordan's former teammate Madeleine. We plan on hitting up the town and staying out until at least 11pm, so needless to say things could get pretty crazy.The only thing that could make me more excited about the week ahead would be a reprieve from the frigid temperatures and snow showers that loom in next weekend's NYC forecast. I swear, spring has to be coming soon, right?? In the meantime, I'll take advantage of this opportunity to bundle up in my Craft base layers for (hopefully) the last time this year and enjoy a few runs along the bridle path in Central Park. New York City, here I come!
