I'm gonna follow the good doctor's advice and be careful. As you'll notice below, no speedwork this week until maybe Sunday.<br><br>
Day..................Plan......................... .................................................. Actual<br>
Monday.............rest........................... ..............................................done<br>
Tuesday............30 minutes very easy.............................................. .done-3 mi. @10:23<br>
Wednesday........1 hour easy.............................................. ...........5.13 mi. @10:21<br>
Thursday...........1 1/2 hour very easy.........................................6.58 mi. @10:53 + 5 striders=7.19 mi.<br>
Friday...............50 minutes easy.............................................. ......3 mi. @10:21<br>
Saturday...........2 1/2 hour trail run.......................................9.84 mi. trail run + 3 mi. road run=12.84 mi.<br>
Sunday...........maybe quality run (tempo/threshold)-1 hour total......done (max VO2 instead of LT)-5.91 mi. total with easy running, walk breaks, etc. & 3 mi. later<br><br>
Totals................40 miles?............................................ ...........40.07 mi.<br><br>
ETA-Not long after I ran 3 more miles and revised my weekly total, I read this in Amby Burfoot's <span style="text-decoration:underline;">Complete Book of Running</span>: "By not giving my obsessiveness an outlet in a training log, I have substantially reduced it. These days when a week reaches, say, 37 miles, I'm never tempted to run another 3 miles so that I can round up to 40." <img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif">
