Week 6 of 20 Marathon training

That is a wrap on another week in training.  We are still mired in a winter hell here in Ohio and it was another week that I was stuck running indoors.  The best way to describe this week is before Thursday and after Thursday.  On Thursday I came down with a weird sinus issue.  I was able to still run, but my strength was zapped.  It definitely affected my time on the bike and weight training.  The good news is that I was able to complete my running program and actually posted some of my best times at the end of the week.  I am currently in a 10 day grind with no off day till this Friday.  My long run this week will be 15 miles on Saturday.  Hopefully I will continue to feel better as the week goes on.  When thinking about writing my recap on the week.  I kept wanting to sand bag what I was doing.  Why would I do that?  Well, I made a fun bet with @shellsruns Winner of the Chili Bowl 5K on 2/19 gets a free beer from the loser.  So, let the sandbagging begin!  I am only a cyclist impersonating a runner and will be lucky to finish in an hour.  Lol.

Nice work this week, you are a beast! I love it. Keep up the good training. Also I kinda stole your cardio song of the week idea and started my own Run song of the week.
