Week 7 of 20 Marathon training

This was a good week for me.  I felt really strong all week and posted some of my best times training so far.  I ran 5 miles on Tuesday at an 8:00 minute per mile pace and shaved 2 minutes off my best 15 mile run on Saturday.  Best of all, I was able to get outside on Sunday.  It was even nice enough in the afternoon to get out on my bike, which was my first outside ride on 2011.  I have a lot of excitement going into this week.  Saturday will be my first race of 2011.  Also, I have a big beer bet with @shellsruns on the race.  If you are not following her on Twitter, you should.  She's a good follow and a fellow CLE runner.  Also, the weather forecast is looking promising for getting outside more this week.  Always a good thing.  On a non cardio note.  The weekend is the Daytona 500 and a long weekend as a result of a Bank Holiday.  To make things even better, my favorite driver won the pole for the race, so a lot of good going on around the Beal lately.
