Whoo-Hoo it's Spring!

It is officially spring! So no more days of this,

Or this,

or at least that is what I'm hoping. I mean I do live in Chicago which has the most unpredictable weather EVER, and snow is being fore casted for later in the week, but the warm sunny days and beach weather in my near future is so close that I can taste it.

Last week was a recovery week for me with lower mileage, and came at the perfect time. I took the week to catch up on some needed sleep and stretch out my aching muscles. But now this week it is time to refocus on building up leg strength and speed, and stay focused on the goals ahead.

Monday: 8 miles easy
Tuesday: 2 mile warm-up, 5x1 mile repeats at 6:20 pace with 800 jogging recoveries, 1 mile cool-down
Wednesday: 7 miles easy recovery
Thursday: 7 miles incline
Friday: 15 miles progressive
Saturday: 7 miles easy recovery
Sunday: OFF
