Weekly Recap: August 20-26

Last week was a HUGE week for me as I hit 50 miles (first time since college!).  We were in Savannah Mon-Wed so those runs were all done on the treadmill.  I try to avoid the treadmill (which is funny because there are points where that's all I do exclusively) but sometimes it's easier if I'm unfamiliar with where I'm running (as was the case in Savannah) or if the weather is bad outside (typically only if it's raining or icy).

Next week will be another cutback week since I'll be in Akron for a couple nights for a wedding I'm in and won't be able to fit in a long run.  Then, I'll have two more big weeks before I start to taper for Akron.

5 weeks till Akron Marathon
10 weeks till NYC Marathon

Monday: 8 mi (8:00 pace)
