7 days

It's pretty much easy street until Twin Cities now. I spent this morning running some nice, hilly, and very slow trails around Sabino Canyon. A nice group joined me, and after running close to 9 minute miles on the steeper sections it was fun spending some time closer to 6:40 pace for the last 5 flat miles. This nice run ended a pretty good week:

Mo: 8 miles easy
Tu: 10 miles easy
We: 10 miles easy w/6x100 strides/300 jogs
Th: 10 miles w/7x1000 around 3:18 each
Fr: 8.2 easy
Sa: 9.5 w/7 miles marathon pace effort around 5:53 pace
Su: 11 hilly miles, mostly trails
Total: 66.7 miles in 7 sessions

I leave for Minnesota on Friday, and I can't wait.

Training: 11 miles, 1:28 or so, around 8 minute pace overall

Good luck...

And again, give my regards to Nobby. I hope to hook up with him when he's in Japan this month.

Enjoy your slower paced week with the family. You are going to do GREAT on Sunday!

Thanks guys, I appreciate it. Runmad, I'll certainly say hello to Nobby for you. I'm sure he'll dig being back in Japan.
