I have been running between 40 and 60 miles per week all along but have been too busy and tired to post about it. We are finally moved in and settled after what seemed like the longest and most drawn out move in history so I am hoping to get back into the swing of things.

Monday: 6mi () Real slow recovery run. No watch. I ran 14 miles yesterday at 6:30 pace.
Tuesday: 10.7mi (1:06:50) Progression run to get the wheels moving a little bit. Started out at 7 min/mi pace and ended in 5:45 pace. Ran the last 5 miles in 29:50.
Wednesday: 8.1mi (57:37) Easy recovery run.
Thursday: 8.1mi (49:40) Threshold/progression run. It was a little quicker than I planned because the weather was so nice but I felt completely in control the whole time. Started at 6:30 pace and ended at 5:50 pace.
Friday: 7mi (51:05) Really easy recovery.
Saturday: 4mi (29:01) Shake out early in the morning.
Sunday: 16mi (1:49:40) I decided to take it easy today and just try to get in more miles rather than do a progression run. I did about 3 miles on single-track trails where I only averaged 7:45 pace but ran a pretty steady 6:30-6:40 pace for the rest of the run. Need more runs like this.

Total for week: 60 miles
