10/10/10: Training Update

Last week was a bit of a down week for training. I ended up hitting something like 55 miles. Most of it was pretty easy running with the exception of a track workout with three 1 mile repeats (5:57, 5:51, 5:38).

I was feeling pretty energized going into this weekend. On Saturday I ran 26 miles out in the Massanuttens. It was an absolutely beautiful day (got some good pictures below). The run was so/so, and I basically ran out of gas, but it was a good time.

On Sunday I followed it up with a fairly brisk 27 miles that felt pretty good. One more big weekend of training for MMTR and then it is taper time!

(It was definitely well into fall up top!)

I heard WillGT busted out a 44 mile training run last weekend?! The blogosphere needs to know this stuff!

Get ready to Birkie!
