Running week of May 9-15

I keep saying it and now I sound like a recording but my mileage just isn’t where I’d like it to be.  In all honesty, this week was tough as I worked about 96 hours this week alone and then had home obligations to squeeze in.  I’m surprised that I got in 20 miles at all but thankful for those Fire Department runs to keep me honest!  This upcoming week looks like it’s going to be unseasonably colder and possible rain most of the week.  I don’t mind running in the rain but cold weather rain just sucks.  Summer rains are awesome but Midwest spring rains just freeze you down to the bone.  I’m hoping to ramp up my runs as well as get some cross-training on the bike.  My next race is in about 2 weeks and it’s an OCR race so strength training is a must.
