Hello Spring

I just got back from a great 15 mile run. The temperature was around 60, and the sun was shining so I could soak up lots of Vitamin D. I ran at a comfortable pace and finished in 2:53:18 for a pace of 11:34. This brings my running streak to 56 days. (They actually put a new belt on the world's suckiest treadmill so I was able to keep the streak alive!)

A quick review of my training this week:
Sunday - 3.93 miles on the treadmill, alternating half miles; an incline of 8.o and speed of 3.5 mph with slow running at 5.3 mph and zero incline
Monday - 9.23 miles in 1:50:00
Tuesday - 4.74 miles in 55:00
Wednesday - 9.7 miles in 1:50:00, this was a tempo run with 6 miles at a 10:54 pace
Thursday - 4.64 miles in 55:00
Friday - 4.88 miles in 55:00

Total mileage for the week was 52.12 miles. Next week's long run will be a 5 hour Time On Feet exercise at my ultra pace, I also plan on doing intervals one day next week. Five weeks until the 50 miles at Umstead.
