The Road to NYC: Weeks 2 & 3

 The weeks are ticking by and I'm still here logging miles, getting ready to take on NYC and a long list of other races this season.

These past 2 weeks were the end of the first build weeks, so this week I'm taking it a bit easier. I'm finally in double digits again, and runs don't feel too taxing at this point.

I've also added in some track work. Man, these felt awesome! I aim for 400m at a 7:30 pace. Trying to get it faster by marathon day, and also working on getting it more consistent. This type of speedwork is my favorite. It's so easy on the body (due to the track) and I really see results of getting stronger and faster. This next training round will keep me on the track through July. Then I'll be ready to do some serious hill training.

Weekly mileage is hovering around 20 miles per week. Not too bad, yet nothing too serious yet. Maxed out at 10.5 miles on a pretty flat trail. Now is where the work begins!
