This was a solid week. Had 3 very good workouts for the second week in a row. IT's one thing to do a good workout feeling fresh and another thing to do a good while not feeling so hot. I am starting to notice my legs are getting tired before my cardio. This is a great thing though. It's because of all the miles making my legs tired, but it's something I'm going to have to get used to, training or racing. Next week I will be racing the Mike Donohoe 5k in Georgetown, MA.
