I am happy to report that this was another successful week of training. My long run of the week was 15 miles on Saturday, which is a personal best for me. It was the first time I have ever ran over 13.1 miles. The weather in Northeast Ohio has not allowed me outside for the 3rd week in a row and judging from this Mega Storm that starts this evening, it may be till the weekend before I can attempt to run outside. My long run this week will be back to 13 on Saturday. As of tomorrow, my training program will have me on a 10 day run-fest. Well, more of a grind than fest. I will be running 10 days straight and I believe the total for that time period will be 59 miles. Hopefully I will drop some more weight during that time period. Speaking of weight loss, I lost at total of 7 pounds during the month of January. I also ran a total of 136 miles during the month. It is easy to see that the weight loss has helped, as my average pace for the week dropped 13 seconds.
