This upcoming week, big tests

In short, I ran 43 miles this week, capped with a 16 miler today done in just over 5:09 kilometre pace. Also fit in an 11 miler and an 8 miler midweek.

Fitness isn't bad but i'm really untested. In three weeks or so, I'm racing the 30K and don't have many pace runs. This week should be a good test.

Speedwork and tempo: I have a 10 miler with 5 miles at LT and a 5K race next Sunday. That should be interesting. I'm really unsure about going for sub 20 minutes but will give it a shot. Weather should be good.

Long: A 11 miler midweek and a 17 miler on the weekend. More on that in the next point.

Hills: I'm going to stay in Burlington overnight Friday to hang out with R and her parents. Then I run the hills of the Around the Bay course the day after.

That's it, more catch up later, but errands to run.

Sounds like a good plan leading up to ATB. You'll do great!

i think you can do sub 20. I was in awe that you ran such a fast time last year. You'll surprise yourself. About the pfitz book, I'd like any additional feedback you can give on it. Chapters online shows that there aren't any stores up north that have the book in stock.
