Phase 3 begins

  So, using my Mtn climbing analogy, I've been successful in maintaining base camp 2. Now I start the climb to base camp 3. During this 4 week period I'll increase by 10% each of the next three weeks and level off in week four. I will run one race as a race effort to gauge fitness level. That will be the Sept. 11th race.
  Each week I will incorporate Fartleks and tempo runs along with my track days. I will increase based on time not distance. I am thinking this will be beneficial in regards to injury prevention. Today for example, I ran much slower than last Monday because of the heat and humidity. So my 66 minutes today was only a little longer that last week. Tomorrow looks like a 53 minute run with 6x1min @ 5Kpace.
  Man we need rain here! The ground is brown and I'm losing trees! Hope all is well with you! Peace!
