not only did marlene kill her marathon redemption by "only" 16 minutes this weekend (yay marlene!), but i surpassed my total mileage for 2008 with three months still to go. looks like i'm going to have to be on top of my game in 2010.
there wasn't much to write home about in regards to last week's runnings, but i did squeeze in 50 miles. at first i was like "how pathetic, i should have at least had 65 miles", but then i slapped myself around a little and reminded myself that i had one 60+ mile week in my last marathon training (disney/goofy challenge). i've had 7-60+ mile weeks so far in this training plan. sure, it's been a bit off target from my original plan, but i also didn't expect to be living out of a hotel either.
week in review (9/21 - 9/27):
total miles: 50.90
time spent running: ~ 7 hours 24 minutes
avg hr: 159.50
avg pace: 8:46/mile (avg temp: unknown*)
off days: 2 (1 complete slothness, trust me)
