5/28-6/03: 96 Miles/Week

Another tiring week of training, but felt better than last week.  I am in Naples, Florida and training in tougher heat and humidity than DC.  I am running early though to beat it, but it still creeps up on me at the end of my runs.  I do, at the same time, feel like it is "toughening" me up.  A few days I have run on the sand next to the ocean and that was nice(soft surface plus ocean breeze).  This week's mileage was 96 miles with a very strong track workout in the middle of the week.  Next week I should be somewhere around 75-80 for the week with one minor workout.  I feel I am running just the right amount to get well prepared.  I did 17.5 for my long run this week as well.  My long runs for the past several weeks have all been 17-18 miles.  Actually, as I look at my training log, the last time I did a 20 miler was February 25, to be exact.  The 20 milers will return when I train for a fall marathon.
