good Caffeinated Anticipation Run 6.85 mi 00:51 07:22 pace

I guess this is what happens when you caffeinate before a no-look recovery run. Feeling a bit of the miles from yesterday, but not too bad. Finished with 10x20" strides.
New weekly PRs in mileage (>85, first time over 80) and runs in the sunlight (4). Feeling better than I have all season.

    Wow. "Feeling a bit" of the miles from yesterday? I'd be in full out Controlled Stumble™ mode. Superb work today, this wk...and this whole cycle Greg. Enjoy the rest of your day!

    Unless someone pulls an ultra today, you have the solid 1st place position on my Leaderboard. Unbelievably great week and the icing on the cake is feeling better than you have all season.

    Thanks all - @Karl, I've been training for 3.5 years (with some injury interruptions) but there was a base built up from running 6 marathons around 7-10 years ago.

    I think the most surpising is the runs in the sunlight PR. Great run after yesterdays long one.

    Nice week Greg. I are feeling the benefits of the higher mileage yet? You should feel stronger at the end of those long runs.

    @David - I think the high mileage is helping the Achilles, but so is some of the new stretching and foam rolling.

    Very nice recovery from yesterday's long run. Way to cap off your highest mileage ever week. Definitely looked like a solid week from here. I'm still worried about all of that sunlight your getting though. It can't be good for you...
