Week 3: Even Keel

My best intentions were to ramp this week up and possibly over 70 miles but the legs were not having it. I ran tough through Thursday and by Friday my 'mental edge' wore on me and I took a much needed day off. I wanted the weekly mileage but really, I have learned to listen to my body and rest when my body is telling me to do so. As a reward for that decision Saturday's long effort went without a hitch. Legs were great and I had minimal tightness in my hamstrings. (last week the hamstrings were the first to go the last 20 minutes of the run...)

The next week should go well and I plan to hit the mid to upper 70's for mileage.
