Last week started off fabulously, with pleasant spring-like weather on Monday and Tuesday. I even rode the bike to the track on Tuesday.

Over the past 8 weeks, I've followed the Benji Durden marathon training plan while training with a few of my friends whom are headed to the Boston Marathon in 3.5 weeks. The plan calls for 2 quality workouts per week, along with a weekend long run.

This upcoming week, I plan to cut back from the twice per week quality to one longer tempo run on Tuesday nights. My plan is to change it up from the VO2Max training and to focus on a phase of long tempos for the next three weeks.

My apologies for the sparse blogging. I look forward to writing more, especially as Bull Run Run 50 and Mohican 100 approach.
