Daniels Park - 10:00 A.M.
50s, overcast, a little wind
mind/body - good
6th day running this week but only got in 54 myles. I did 6x1o second pick ups to full speed dispersed through this run. I read in Running Times last year that this helps with the neurological message from the muscles to the brain for speed. 6:52 casual pace today.
It's been a nice gradual increase over the last month and now it's time to crank it up a little. Crank it up as far as intensity but not too much distance. Over the last year I have been pretty comfortable with an average of 65-70 myles/week, with a spike of 80 here and there - seems to work for me.
