This week has been a nice progression. I gave myself one rest day and continued to run near an hour a day and a bit more on the weekend days. I plan to move up to get my two medium distance runs and longer efforts on the weekend within a months time. The main hurdle for this to happen seems to be a nagging hamstring that just will not let me progress to decent mileage. There seems to be some underlying problem that has yet to be discovered and now, more than ever, I need to figure it out!
Both runs this weekend had a little bit of hamstring tightness and keeping me from cranking up the pace too much.
Here is how the week looked:
Monday: 47:00 6.1 miles
easy jogging to stretch out the legs

Wednesday: 51:45 7.1 miles

Friday: 1:01:00 8.1 miles *last mile at 6:00 pace
super foggy out!
Saturday: 1:45:00 10.5 miles *Jay Cooke Trails
Sunday: 2:20:00 18.2 miles roads
Weeks Total: 58.2 miles (6 days)
Years Total: 520.5 miles
