Week in Review - The Two Down, One to Go Edition

Yep.  The second 2- miler is in the books.  I finished about a minute faster than my last 20-miler and only about 3 minutes slower than the 19-miler I ran over the same course.  I was pretty satisfied with that.  This week I'll do something like 16 and the weekend after will be the final looooong run before the race.  Exciting stuff.  And how was the rest of the week?

M- Strength
T- 8mi + yoga
W- 8mi
R- 8mi with 2x15 minutes tempo at 8:28 and 8:23 min/mile + yoga
F- Strength
S- 20mi
S- 6mi + yoga

I added an extra mile on yesterday so I could hit an even 50 for the week.  I was happy with the way everything went.  I feel recovered from the race and ready to add some speed work back in this week.  I'm starting to feel excited about the marathon!
