Not bad for a "free week" especially considering I didnt work out Monday since I flew home from DC and got in to work late. Although I got in a decent amount of volume, most of it was lower intensity stuff so it wasnt very mentally taxing at all. It was also nice to feel fresh on my run workouts during the latter part of the week. This is as opposed to the usual state of soreness/fatigue which causes the legs to feel like trash for the first 20-30 minutes of a most runs.

Thursday's run was an especially comfortable 64 minute 10 miler up on top of Monte Sano with David. We started easy then finished up at a nice comfortable cruise pace. After the run we then went to dinner at Cantina Laredo which, BTW, was quite delicious. Not only was the food good, but we got half priced margaritas!

This weekend I have another race but its just a local Olympic distance affair so I'll be training through it. In fact Paulo intially sent me my schedule without the race and when I reminded him I was racing his response was, "OK, keep everything the same but do the race on Sunday." Should be a good time...

The mark of a great coach is one who doesn't have to change his workouts... :p

You forgot to mention your bike workout after the race ;-)
