On the training front, I tucked another good week under my belt as I continue to build aerobic strength and get my legs back under me for the long haul to Chicago. I totalled 102 miles on 11 runs, my first time over the century mark in '06. I got in a solid faster mid-week effort and ended the week with some up-tempo strength stuff, but neither is worth going into painstaking detail about. A pleasant semi-longer-than usual jaunt through the Lincoln woods on Thursday night with Terry Shea, Carly Graytock and Brendan Prindiville is also worth noting. This coming Tuesday night will mark my first workout back with the team now that the High Performance meets have resumed their normal Saturday structure for the summer. I can't wait.
And that does it for tonight. Time to hit the road. Take it easy all.
