Phase I done!

 I've logged seven consecutive weeks of at least three hours on the roads, the last four with hill reps making that period my strengthening phase, or base camp I. Now I hope to begin what I call base camp II. I know, I know, kinda hokie but I liken this training to Mtn climbing. You establish a base and prepare for the next segment.
  This next phase (building) I hope to reach 4-4.5 hrs on the roads with consistent track workouts adding in races for FCR training. Plus a real med long run....like maybe a 10  miler?
  Today a little 31 minute run finished the week with 21.9 miles this week. Building a solid base! Maybe a marathon is in my future? Peace!
