Ack last week I didn't post my actuals!<br>
A couple of days of 35 degree rain brought me in at 36M. Please fix!<br><br>
I will post actuals this week and may not hit 40 again. We'll see. These are do or die weeks for me.

Am I allowed to post my intent? I plan on a 40-mile week this week for the first time since last fall.<br><br>
Monday - 5-mile recovery run (did 18 today). Hope to get outside, but looks like a dreadmill run.<br>
Tuesday - 4 miles, followed by hockey game at night<br>
Wednesday - 12 miles<br>
Friday - 9 miles<br>
Sunday - 10 mile race<br><br>
I consider hockey the equivalent of a 2-mile run, but even if you don't, I still get my 40.<img alt="toothy9.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/toothy9.gif">
