Running Progress - week 4

Four weeks to gone and four weeks to go before my race.  It's been two fairly ugly weeks for my training.  My cousin came out from NC to visit.  Other friends were in town.  We ate a lot, drank even more and to make up for it, exercised less.  My weight hasn't dropped an ounce. 

I've now kicked back into gear.   Yesterday I ran 12 miles and walked another three at the end. I am not going fast, but I am managing to keep my speed consistent as I ramp up the distance.  The runs are getting long enough now that they are a big time commitment and really knock you out a bit for the rest of the day.

Hoping to have a good, productive training week. On Saturday I am running a 5k race sponsored by Friends of Animals Utah.  I'll just call that a speed work day.
