Sometimes you need an easy week and sometimes you don’t. Last week was one of those times when I definitely needed an easy week of running. I diligently knocked each one out exactly as the schedule said, including a sweltering lunch time run in the heart of Texas summer heat. There were no tempo or speed miles and no real long distances. It was much-needed after a rough Week 4. Heading into Week 6 I’m feeling refreshed and ready to light it up. I’m looking forward to hitting 50 miles this coming week, particularly with an 18 mile run that I can do in Seattle’s cool, dry climate. I’m not even sure how to prepare for a place where their HIGH temp is cooler than our LOW temp. I think I’ll figure out a way though.
