    Now that I know you are not inserting grease…will run all the miles, all the time!
    At cottage till Friday so I have to keep dealing with those hills that slow me down going up and down (god help my knees)…looking forward to straight terrain next week in the city…then back up to the cottage for wind surfing and more hills!

      Your week 5 training log looks more like week 6. Check your sheet.
      What really happened to week 5?
      I have been using your blog to do my runs-now I know you are not a reliable source..
      Looking forward to running with you in a couple of weeks.

        My week 5 and week 6 are swapped, because I’m running a race this weekend. You should be following the week 5 list if you’re not running a race…sorry.

        PS – stop running in the middle of the day! I set my alarm at 5:30, and still lose 7 pounds of water on my long runs!

    What distance is your race this weekend? Keep me posted on your result.
    I did not sign up for the Acura 10 miler which would have been this weekend as well.
    Ran at 7:30 am yesterday. Better….but not by much…
