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.
My giveaway will be pushed back to next week, so make sure you check back then for a chance to win a free race entry. This week's giveaway can be found at Beal's blog.
