A good week of training, with a decent 10K performance (click here for race report) this past Saturday. I did my routine KettleWorX/Yoga core fitness training on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. I ran on Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday for a total of 28 miles this week.
This week I’ll begin training preparations for a hot half marathon in early June. Haven’t decided upon a strategy yet, but knowing that it will most likely be warm, I am not expecting to set a PR.
