Did alot of flat running this week with the exception of Tuesday's 5 x 3:00 on a moderate hill. I could really feel the turnover and speed making progress this week, by just plain running faster. Threw in some strides on Thursday, even a race report on Saturday and a 2 hour beach run Sunday moring before the Easter Bunny came.
I've thinking a little about where I want my training to go now that I won't be doing Mt. Washington. I think I'm leaning more toward training for a 3 hour effort, and then try and pick some races in that range. In the meantime I look forward to this local 10k, Rock2Rock, that I'll be lucky to break 1 hour on. It's pretty much an up/down with 2,000' of climbing on the way up in less than 3 miles, then a nasty descent before the grade calms down a little. The last mile is a moderate grade on trecherous terrain. Great local race that's part of the La Sportiva Series.
