Weeks 1/30, 2/6, 2/13

Update on the last 3 weeks: just mileage with a little bit of faster running towards many of my runs. 1/30 ended with 75 miles, 2/6 ended with 85 miles, and last week ended with 77 miles(with one day off-stomach bug).

I have done a long run every week so far of the new year, and this is a great improvement in my training. Below is a summary of the new year's mileage and workouts so far:

12/27-1/2: 20m LR, 72m/week
1/3-1/9: 4x800 track, 20m LR, 72 m/week
1/10-1/16: 20m LR, 65 m/week
1/17-1/23: 2x1600, 1x800, 1x400 track, 15:26 5K RACE, 20m LR, 66m/week
1/24-1/30: 19m LR, 75m/week
1/31-2/6: 23m LR, 85m/week
2/7-2/13: 22m LR, 77m/week

The long runs I start out slow and build. By the end of them I am cruising. Most take between 2:15-2:30 hours.

My endurance and strength are getting really strong-the three weeks after the 5k I ran I did just that. But now I do need to start doing some more workouts again to get ready for the Spring, starting this week.

LT Workouts: these are the most important workouts for 13.1m racing. I find I am very good at them and they come naturally to me. As warmer weather nears this week, I am looking foward to getting some solid workouts in.
