Where did the week go ?

Time to catch up I guess. So the last time I blogged at all I was talking about how I was looking forward to starting my training for Grandma's and such. I ended last week with a great long run with Sonya, Paul and Adam for part of it. Paul and I got in like 18 miles on the LRT trail from Hopkins. There was a little ice but overall not to bad. I think th week ended with 45 miles in 5 runs once more. Man I could not get over the hump with days and amount of miles.

This week has started out much much better overall. So far I have run everyday !!! I have also had three real nice 10 mile runs. Now while this has been good I do know not to over do it to much and go from 5 days and 45 miles the last few weeks to 7 days and like 70+ miles. That being said I do look to get all 7 days in with some running and if all works out end with like 60 miles for the week.

Now more in my showing everyone some great motivational video's I like. Since I just bought this week the Brad Hudson training book I thought I would show you a video from one of his runners and one of my favorite U.S. runners Dathan Ritzenhein. Dathan was just 9th place at the last Olympic marathon. Enjoy !!

Another Grandma's runner - cool! I also am excited to start training (like, today I guess - 4 mths out...) - I agree the speed and tempo runs for a marathon are a BIG help on ultras - makes all the difference in the last 10 miles or more of an ultra to have pushed past your threshold so much in training.
