Notes: Considering E was on trial this week, and I had little dude duty alot, I am very happy with this week. Bike commuting is helping with my time spent in an aerobic zone, and an 18.5 mile long run this weekend at a 9:06 pace was a huge confidence booster for Vermont. One more big week and then I’ll start to tape. Onward!

Notes: Got in a strong 16 mile long run, but the week-a-day runs were still lacking. Time to get serious about a new run streak I think – it’s the only way I seem to be able to get regular mileage—and regular mileage is what I need!

Friday Inspiration: Desi Linden workout

Here’s an oldie but a goodie. Desi Linden, when she was still Desi Davila, training for the 2012 Olympic trials by running 5 x 2 mile repeats at 5:15 per mile, in the winter, in Detroit. Check out her form. Its damn near perfect:

Maybe I’ll try this work out. Though for me, the pace would be about three minutes faster per mile.

Notes: Feeling good about my running this week – forty miles is just about where I need to be as I start the countdown to marathon training. I expect to do more of the same this coming week. I’ve got to figure out a way to get in some bike miles. That will be the challenge this week.
