From our house, I was able to get in plenty of the needed, but unvaried running that consumed my weekly mileage, along with a track session, and a pavement-pounding long run along the river. We (Allen and I) lost Kris this week after our track session. I know the track can take many lives; as it has in the past, and it was relentless against the guys who haven't started track workouts. It was a short; 6x1000m workout, and I thought it went well. After the carnage, Kris would be sidelined due to an achilles injury, and Allen cut the workout short from his 12lbs. of lost body weight after his NYC half marathon debacle. Sunday's long run went well, and I was able to get 22 miles in with another Jack Daniels workout in it: 3x1 miles and 2x1 miles towards the end.
All and all, it was a pretty satisfying week. I think I consumed nearly 50 Powerbars and used 1 gel in the long run.
