Ran three miles this afternoon to finish off the week. Running for 25 minutes is so much different (read: easier) than running for 1:40, like I did yesterday. They're not even remotely similar. I guess the difference is all in my head. Oh yeah, and perhaps the mileage.
The run stats for this week are lean: 19.5 miles. But, we did hike 36.7 miles earlier in the week. In other words, the hours are way up there, and it was a good week. I'm kinda tired. Something tells me that's going to be a theme as I build for the marathon. (I told you I was going to whine about it.)
Two days in the woods starting tomorrow. We're finishing off the final 27 miles of the AT in New Hampshire from Franconia Notch to Crawford Notch. More in a couple days.
