      @Andrea - Thank you! I had a tough time the last 2 weeks fitting it in with travel so I am hanging onto the wagon. LOL! I'm determined to get back on track. @Stephanie I am constantly inspired by your strength work and how you fit it in with swimming, running and biking!

  6. RUN
    good Treadmill hills 8 mi 01:10 08:48 pace

    good Wednesday Run #1 6 mi 00:48 08:00 pace

    I had nine on the docket which is a challenge on a work day so my coach told me I could split them into two if necessary. So this morning I ran 6 with 6x30 second strides at the end.

      I wouldn't think twice about it...so much of it is endurance focused and building into your base...which was accomplished thru 5. What's one more...shake it off
