I finished the five day week with the planned eight mile run today, in 7:55 a mile. That made for 40 miles from Monday to Friday, with Wednesday off. Goal met. Legs good. All positive.
I spent around 317 minutes on the treadmill this week. Mostly boredom, but a chance to work on form, breathing, and body analysis. I'll talk a bit about the "life" advantage of this type of training in the next few days. I think there is actually a positive to the treadmill (!).
