Training is going well. I ran the Cleveland West Fall Classic today as a long group run. The temps were pretty bitter, which made my decision to run this even smarter. No way I was going out alone in those temps. Ran 5 miles at a steady pace then dropped back to long run pace for the remainder. Here is the schedule for the upcoming week.
Mon - 1 hour easy
Tue - 6 x 2 mile repeats @ 6:10 pace
Wed - 1hr 30min group run
Thu - AM:Time Home Run for Homeless / PM:5 easy miles
Fri - 6 mile tempo run
Sat - 1 hour easy
Sun - 2 hours with 1 hour @ marathon pace
Special Congrats this week to Fred Kieser for his 2nd place overall effort at the Philadelphia Marathon. 2:22:45 at 37 years old. Not bad.
