Week 5 of Akron Marathon Training

It was another solid week of training and I was above 200 miles for the first time this year.  Apart from Thursday and Friday, the weather was pretty good. I did get poured on while riding Thursday and then again during Friday's first run.  The only thing I did not get accomplished this week was my long run.  It was to be 15 miles and I ended up doing 11.  Four of them were race miles and I did get plenty of riding in, so I am not too worried about it.  On Friday I completed my 10th race of the year and got a PR at the 4 mile distance.  The rest of the week was spent riding and getting prepared for some tours that are coming up in July.  The best news of the week is that I lost another 2 lbs!!  That is 4.8 the past two weeks and instantly put me in a good mood today.

This week will be more of the same.  I do not have a race or cycling event scheduled.  It is possible that I will do a 4 miler here in Stow on Monday.  Other than that.  I will be focusing on getting lighter, faster, and stronger.

Beal, your training is really coming along nicely. Isn't it a cool feeling to break 200?
