I got 74 miles this week with one good workout, a decent tempo and my longest long run since coming back. Next week I will shoot for 75-80 miles and then take a rest week and cut my mileage to 50-60.

Monday: 10.6mi (1:14:56) Easy run. I thought it was slower than it really was.
Tuesday: 10.6mi (?) Standard 10 miler at work.
Wednesday: 11mi - 3 mile warm-up, 5x1600 @ 10k pace w/ 400m rest and 2 mile cool-down.
Thursday: 10mi (73:11) Really easy run at work to shake out the legs.
Friday: 10.6mi (71:03) Really easy the first half and then pushed hard for 6-8 miles. Averaged 6:40 pace overall and near 6:00 pace for the hard parts.
Saturday: 5.2mi (40:13) I really needed an easy run.
Sunday: 16mi (1:50:04) I wanted to do 3-4 miles at MP but after the first 6-7 miles I realized that I was not feeling great and just focused on getting the run done. It was beautiful weather so I was a bit bummed that I could not run the run I wanted to do. Oh well. I also had to cut it a little short because I had to take one of the kids to a birthday party (I was planning on 18 miles).
