Trail Note

I've been feeling a little tired on my runs this week, which I thought strange until I thought about it a little further:
- I ran on Monday afternoon in 86 degree heat; that'll slow you down
- By the time I finished my run yesterday, I had put in 25 miles in 3 days; this is more that I did per week prior to April

So, overall, I guess things are going pretty well. I have to get on track and do all of my speedwork, however, as I've been slacking on that lately in favor of just getting the miles in. That and start lifting. I read an article in Runner's World about how core and upper body strength really help when one is tired at the end of a long run. That and it's good for me and looks good. ;)
