Oops, sorry about that. I hate screwing up protocol.<br><br>
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 yesterday). 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="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">
