What was the secret? They wanted to know, in a thousand different ways they wanted to know THE SECRET. And not one of them was prepared, truly prepared to believe that it had not so much to do with chemicals and zippy mental tricks as with that most unprofound and sometimes heart rending process of removing, molecule by molecule, the very tough rubber that comprised the bottom of his running shoes. - John L.

Rite Aid Cleveland 10k Training: Week 12

This week the mileage was a bit lower with there being a race on Saturday.  Specifically, I shortened Thursday's tempo and there was no long run.  I continued to work on hills though and was very pleased with how my hill workouts are going.  I with the snow starting to melt off the sidewalks I was able to even get some strides in on Friday.  I hope to continue that in order to work a little on my speed.
