The coming week
Here's my schedule for the next week. I'm planning to do my long run on Saturday morning. I'll be in DC visiting R and would like to get the long run over with so we can enjoy our weekend together. It will be hot, so i'm going to try to get up extra early. Hydration will be critical; in fact, I think i'll do the first half of the run (8 miles) then refill on water, then head back out for another 7.
Tuesday: 8 miles with 10x100 (morning)
Wednesday: 5 miles (morning)
Thursday: 10 miles (evening)
Friday: 4 miles (morning)
Saturday: 15 miler (In DC)
