Training Week 5/14

Training for the week 5/14 to 5/20 was right where I wanted. In the early part of the week I recovered from the previous weekend, which was filled with a long, long run and race. Midweek I got in two Treadmill Incline Runs. And by end of week I did a training run up and, for the first time ever, DOWN the rockpile (Mt. Washington) with pal Jeff Dengate. All in all, a good week!
